Tutoring

WHAT an APDC VOLUNTEER DOES: The Asian Pacific Development Center Adult Education Program offers enrolled students one-hour, private tutoring sessions with an APDC volunteer (you!). Our students need the opportunity to practice English conversation individually outside of class.

WHAT APDC NEEDS FROM YOU: In addition to conversing in English, volunteers might be asked to assist a student with a specific English need (pronunciation, reading, writing). Teachers can provide materials to support the tutor/student learning. Emotional intelligence, a clear, encouraging manner of engaging with students, and ideally, some understanding of trauma-informed care, are essential to this role.

COMMITMENT: All volunteers will be required to do some online training and observe other tutors. We ask that virtual volunteers commit to at least ten weeks to start. Tutors choose regular time slots and maintain that schedule for the duration of the quarter (10 weeks). Days, afternoons, evenings, and weekends are all in demand. These appointments are held over Zoom.

URGENT NEED: We are currently onboarding volunteers to tutor adult English language learners in-person at our location at 1537 Alton Street, Aurora, CO. If interested, please contact Heather Morgan to discuss schedule and details.

CONTACT: HeatherMorgan@apdc.org. Application, interview, and background check are required.
