About Our Tutors
LitNet tutors are an ever-growing network of over 150 professionals: bankers, physicians, librarians, horticulturists, business owners, editors, teachers, lawyers, speech pathologists, nurses, actors, artists, journalists, scientists, graphic designers, playwrights, nonprofit leaders, and social workers.
We provide our volunteer tutors with training and ongoing support. Some tutors have backgrounds in education, others do not. There is no need to have any expertise in any language except English. The only requirement is to be interested in helping change lives, one student at a time.
Tutors are community-builders and cultural brokers. They offer LitNet students the opportunity to learn, grow, ask questions, and make mistakes in a supportive and compassionate environment. Tutors are often a critical resource in teaching our immigrant students the ins and outs of American culture and life in the Berkshires.
