Training Schedule for Tutors

Dear Prospective Tutor:
Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer tutor with the Dyslexia Tutoring Program (DTP).  Our program provides FREE screening and remedial tutoring for low-income adults and children throughout Maryland, with dyslexia and other language-based learning differences.

Our course is offered FREE of charge to those who commit to 60 hours of tutoring. The volunteer tutor and the student decide upon the actual tutoring schedule. We suggest that tutors meet with their students at least once a week, for 1 to 1 ½ hour sessions. Tutoring can take place at our office or at other public facilities. We are pleased to offer the following class:
