Beaver County CALP actively recruits tutors! The time commitment is small (two hours a week), but the impact on our learners is large!

One on One Foundational Skills Tutoring

One on one instruction in foundational skills that include reading, writing, basic digital skills, and basic numeracy skills. Once a match with a tutor is made, the learning plan (roadmap) is specifically designed to help the learner reach his or her goal.

English Language Learning (ELL) Tutoring

Learners are matched with a tutor with the skills to help the learner develop better communication (speaking, listening, reading, writing) skills in English. ELL tutoring is available to individuals whose first language is not English.

One on One Community Capacity Building Tutoring

Beaver County CALP offers a variety of Community Capacity Building opportunities where learners may require additional assistance to be successful. These opportunities include the GED preparation course. Learners are matched with a tutor to assist in the math, science or English composition and reading portion of the course. This Community Capacity Building tutoring is offered on a cost recovery basis.
