Tutoring

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 begin the week of July 26, which is our second week of Quarter 1 classes. We will provide a training before then, but the active volunteering will not begin until that week.

We will continue to accept applications after that as well, so please do apply!

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.

WHERE IS IT: Due to Covid-19, these sessions will occur entirely via Zoom. As of this posting, there will be NO in-person tutoring sessions. All of our students eligible for one-on-one tutoring have had experience logging into Zoom and should be able to connect with you that way.

If you need training on the Zoom platform, we can provide that.
