Volunteer with us

Volunteer tutors meet with their learners in small groups or one-to-one once per week for one to two hours to help them reach their  goals.

Our Adult Education program helps adults in achieving their learning goals. Tutors work with learners improve their reading, math, and workplace skills. They also help learners prepare for the GED or other tests.

The English as a Second Language (ESL) program helps newcomers from around the world learn English, prepare for the U.S. citizenship exam, improve workplace skills, and learn about American culture. Tutors do not need to know a foreign language to be an ESL tutor.

To become a volunteer, please contact us at:      (850) 606-2644        literacy@leoncountyfl.gov


Featured Tutor Jamie Smith: picture of zoom meeting with smiling woman teaching from a blue painted kitchen

"I’m Jamie Smith, an ESL tutor at the LeRoy Collins Leon County Public Library.  I help people who want to learn English or improve English language skills.  These skills include speaking, reading, listening, writing, or grammar. Sometimes, I help people with their citizenship test. The beauty of tutoring is that I become a student too. I love learning about other cultures and countries.  The people I help become my eyes to their world."
