Tutor Resources

Welcome to tutoring at East Side Learning Center

As volunteers, you are the hands and feet of East Side Learning Center's (ESLC) mission. We appreciate the time, talent and commitment you give to help East Side children learn to read. Below are links to resources used in our trainings and to materials and sites with more information. 

General Tutoring Information

For the 2020-21 school year, all tutoring will take place virtually. Please read our Virtual Tutoring Q & A for more information.

We need more Literacy Mentors, so please share this opportunity with friends and family or ask your faith community to post in the bulletin or on the volunteer board.
