Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
BECOME a TUTOR - No teaching experience is necessary and English need not be your first language. You will help non-English speaking adults to learn the English language. Our organization will teach you how to be a tutor! We will train you, match you to a student and help you get started with your one-on-one tutoring. We ask that you commit one or two hours per week -- all meetings are arranged by you and your student at a time most convenient for both of you. Through your tutoring you may help an adult student to get a better job, apply for citizenship, read to their children....there are so many possibilities!
