WHAT IS TUTORING LIKE?
You and your tutor will work together to decide when and where to meet. Tutoring should take place in our office, at the library, or public place. Tutoring is NOT to take place in your home or the tutor's home. You will meet for at least two hours each week and will practice your lessons at home. The tutor will be there to help you make progress.
WHAT HAPPENS IF THINGS DO NOT WORK OUT?
We will work together with you and your tutor to make sure things are going well. If at any time you feel uncomfortable with your tutor, just let staff know. We will work to match you with another tutor.
