Information for students
What does a tutor do?
Tutors assist students with reading, writing, math or to learn better English. Tutors serve students one-on-one, in classrooms, or work with small groups. Tutors meet with students on a weekly or twice-weekly basis to help them gain the knowledge and skills they need to reach their goals.

How long does it take to get a tutor?

What is required of the student?
