Asian Pacific Development Center

  • 2 people are interested

IN PERSON TUTOR:

WHAT WE DO: This program offers current students one-hour, private tutoring sessions with an APDC volunteer teacher (you!). Many of our students have participated in our program for some time, but need the opportunity to have additional conversation practice with someone outside the classroom.

WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU:

This volunteer may be asked to assist a student with a specific English need (e.g. pronunciation, reading, writing practice for the citizenship exam, normal conversation etc.)

Teachers can provide some materials to help the student practice. You will not be expected to procure books or materials, although you are welcome to collaborate with the teacher if you have materials you believe could be supportive.

HOURS:

We are currently onboarding volunteers to tutor adult ESL students in person at our location at 1537 Alton Street, Aurora, CO.

Volunteers are able to determine their schedules and how many hours they would like to teach, but we do ask that volunteers commit to at least ten weeks for at least one class time or one-on-one session per week. Generally, tutors choose a regular time slot (or slots) weekly and maintain that schedule for the duration of their time with us. You are free to offer one hour a week or several! Days, afternoons, evenings, and weekends are all in demand.
