Tutor Ready is a freely available online resource for literacy tutors. Using Tutor Ready learning plans tutors can work at their own pace, access material anywhere and any time as they prepare to work with learners. Tutor Ready presents research-based information in manageable chunks based on tutor questions using text, images, audio and video to illustrate tutoring techniques. Tutor Ready can be part of pre- and in-service training as well as being available at any time that tutors have questions.
Tutor Ready provides answers to some common questions volunteer tutors ask about how best to help their learners improve their skills in the following components of reading:

Tutor Ready learning plans were created by our LINCS’ Region 4 Professional Development Center with the support of the OCTAE, in partnership with the Literacy, Language and Technology Research group at Portland State University.
