Tutor Training

The WestTO Virtual Tutor Training Program is organized in partnership with the WestTO Learning Collaborative. The Tutor Training Program takes a critical, learner-centred approach to adult literacy and community learning.


The focus of the training is to:

  • Introduce you to the world of adult community literacy and what learner-centred approach is

  • Provide framework and tools for building non judgement, anti-oppressive, trauma-informed Tutor- Learner partnerships

  • Build your skills in self-awareness, empathy, active listening and sensitivity to inequality as well as power & privilege outside and inside Tutor- Learner partnerships

  • Give you practical, hands on skills on how to be an effective tutor to adult literacy learners facing socio-political barriers
