Our volunteer tutoring hours are flexible! Need and availability will be discussed depending on which campus you would like to serve as a volunteer.

You will complete half day of training as well as a shadow period with an Instructional Specialist or staff tutor. Any time spent tutoring will be done on a volunteer basis.
What is my role as a tutor?
As a tutor is it your role to aid students in the learning process. You will have the responsibility of structuring the tutoring session, and reinforcing the student’s method or style of applying a particular concept. You will be working side-by-side with our professional tutors and Instructional Specialists.
When do I find out if I am a tutor?
Once you complete the Volunteer Tutor Application, you will be contacted. At that time we will answer any questions you may have and set up an appointment to meet. At that meeting we will match your skills and area of interest with our student's needs.
