Literacy for East Toronto is an organization that provides free one-to-one and small group tutoring for adults who want to read, write or do mathematics better.
We are made up of learners, volunteer tutors and volunteer board members.
As learners, we have our own goals. We need to work at what interests us at our own pace. We work with tutors to identify our goals and to find ways to reach them.
As volunteer tutors, we listen to the needs of learners and support them in reaching their goals. We believe that being a tutor is an opportunity for learning and growth.
As a volunteer board of directors, we make sure that tutors and learners get what they need to teach and learn.
Literacy for East Toronto believes that learning is lifelong. We tell our community about literacy and encourage and support those interested in joining our work.
