The Augustine Literacy Project® of the Triangle trains and supports volunteer tutors who provide free, one-to-one instruction in reading, writing and spelling to low-income children in our area: Durham, Orange, Wake, and Chatham counties. Our programs are based on the Orton-Gillingham approach: multisensory, direct, explicit, structured, and sequential phonics instruction.


NEW! Early Intervention Program Training:


  • One-day training, plus a one-hour review session before tutoring begins

  • Tutor a kindergartner or first grader

  • Materials developed by the ALP-T and other sources, clear instructions

  • Minimal lesson planning required

  • Assessments that test for what we teach and are easy to administer

  • Lessons are 35-40 minutes, twice a week

  • Complete the curriculum in approximately 50 lessons

  • Experience teaching a nonreader to read and spell for the first time

  • After completion, option to start over with a new K-1 student
