The Adult Education program offers free one-on-one, pair, and small group tutoring provided through a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Education. Students interested in having a tutor must first attend orientation/assessment session for level placement and goal setting. Students interested in tutoring must be able to meet with their tutors at least three hours a week. Students and tutors meet in public places such as libraries or at Keystone classroom sites.
Keystone is always looking for volunteer tutors to assist students in reaching their educational goals. Volunteers interested in working one-on-one with students or working with a tutoring group must have a bachelor’s degree. Those interested in volunteering in the classroom as an aid must have a high school diploma. Volunteers tutor students in English as a Second Language (ESL), EL/Civics, GED, English, and Math. Free tutor training for tutors is hosted approximately four times a year by Keystone and provided by Tutors of Literacy in the Commonwealth.
