One-to-one tutoring

In our one-to-one tutoring program, a literacy tutor is paired with an adult student. Literacy tutors tailor lessons to their students’ practical needs, like counting change or practicing common greetings in English. As a result, students learn quickly and remember more.

Literacy tutors also help their students assimilate as they explain the nuances of American culture. It’s like welcoming a guest to their new world and helping them feel at home.

Literacy tutors often say that they learn far more than they teach. They learn about other cultures, different customs and get a glimpse life from a completely different point of view.
