  • Tutors will select a student/students that match their grade and subject preference, in addition to availability
  • Once connected, tutors communicate directly with your student/family to determine the best schedule for lessons.
  • Commit to tutoring at least 1-2x per week (or more!) for at least a semester.
  • Support your student/s through homework help, test prep, and engaging lesson plans.
  • Act as a mentor, not just a tutor.
