We Need New Tutors!!

The Literacy Network of South Berkshire (LitNet) has been offering free, one-on-one tutoring sessions for adults since 1991. LitNet’s flexible, personalized approach to tutoring enables adult learners to succeed in their jobs, support their families, and engage with their local communities. The organization began by teaching reading skills, and LitNet quickly expanded its curriculum to offer lessons in English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), citizenship test preparation, high-school diploma preparation, and adult basic education.
To better serve the growing population of immigrant adult learners who live in the Berkshires, LitNet is looking for new tutors! No prior teaching experience is necessary. All you need are curiosity, patience, and a willingness to help your neighbors! Training and support for tutors will be provided. If you would like to learn more about LitNet or want to sign up to become a volunteer tutor, please contact Executive Director Jennifer Hermanski at 413-243-0471 or
