What makes a great tutor?

  • Passion for helping and teaching and seeing their learner grow.
  • Patience to help learners where they’re at and slowly improve over time.
  • Empathy to understand the learner may be balancing work, family and other responsibilities, all in a community where they may not speak with language.
  • Resourcefulness to connect learners with the information and tools they need to thrive.
