The Sessions
The tutoring sessions are designed by each tutor to specifically address the individual goals, needs, abilities, learning style, and personal interests of each student. The tutor plans the sessions to include materials, activities, and exercises that relate directly to the learner’s individual reasons for seeking tutoring.
Tutoring Agreement
Adult learners and volunteer tutors are expected to commit to meeting for tutoring sessions for a minimum of once a week, for an hour, for 12 months. The learner and tutor can decide to meet more frequently than once a week if they wish. They can also decide to continue to work together beyond the 12-month period.
