Schools of Hope is invested in training all of our volunteers so they can be comfortable and effective as tutors. We offer training in many different ways so all tutors can access the types of training they need to be successful.

Schools of Hope Tutor Handbook – This tutoring handbook includes details about Schools of Hope and vital information for volunteers.

Community-wide Tutor Trainings:  Throughout the year, we offer occasional evening training opportunities. These training sessions, led by school district staff, will feature a variety of workshop topics. Tutor Coordinators at individual schools will inform tutors when a new Community-wide Tutor Training will be offered.

Schools of Hope Tutor Training Videos: Four videos can be found on our YouTube Channel.  The first video is about Getting Started as a tutor.  The second video is for those tutors working with younger students (K-3).  The third video is useful for tutors working with older students (4th and 5th graders).  The fourth video, Word Work, provides useful tips for helping build literacy skills and for starting a tutoring session.

Madison Metropolitan School District Video Trainings:  On this web site you’ll find training videos and links with helpful information that can make your tutoring experience easier, more effective, and more enjoyable. You can choose from the topics below to explore the LiteracyHomeless and Highly Mobile Students, and Positive Behavior Support tutoring resources.
