Volunteer tutors come from many walks of life. While some are former teachers, a teaching background is not required. Many are retirees who now have the time and desire to “give back to their community.” Other tutors are still in the workforce. Men and women find tutoring to be a rewarding experience and cheer when their student becomes a U.S. citizen, lands a new job, or gains confidence to attend their first parent-teacher conference. These events are life changing for the student.
A great tutor has a genuine desire to help students…to listen, encourage, and celebrate their successes. The human connection is the magic that makes our program a win-win for tutors and students.
