I want to be a tutor but do not have a teaching background - does that matter?

Not at all! As long as you have a desire to make a difference and are fluent in reading, writing, and speaking English, you are an ideal candidate to be a tutor.


How do I become a tutor?

All tutors must attend a training program that is scheduled at least 4 times during the calendar year. Learn more HERE. During the pandemic, we are revamping our tutor training to include at least two Zoom sessions and one in-person session, not to exceed two hours each.


How often am I expected to meet with my student?

We recommend that you meet with your student once each week for at least one hour. You may, of course, meet more than once a week if your student wishes to do so and you can accommodate tha schedule. You will also need preparation time before each tutoring session, which is why we ask for a committent of a least two hours per week.


What can I expect to happen during the training program?
