Our one-on-one and small group tutoring is free and based on students’ schedules, making it accessible to those who would otherwise be unable to afford or attend traditional classroom settings.
1. Attend orientation. Orientations for Adult Education are scheduled as needed.
2. Attend tutor training. At orientation, you will have the opportunity to sign up for training. Tutors in the Adult Education receive 12 hours of training.
3. Get matched with a student. The Engagement Librarian will match you with a student or small group of students who corresponds to the preferences you indicate at tutor training. The Engagement Librarian will set the date, time, and location of your first meeting. After that, you will schedule your tutoring sessions with your Adult Ed student.
4. Start tutoring. Meet with your student(s) for at least 1.5 hours per week for a minimum of six months. Share your success stories with us and attend periodic in-service trainings to freshen up your skills.
Tutors commit to 6 months, 1.5 hours per week, of student tutoring at a mutually agreeable time of day, day of week, and location.
