What is the English Tutoring Program?
The English Tutoring Program (ETP) provides one-on-one English tutoring to vulnerable newcomers who are unable to attend English classes for reasons such as:
Disability or chronic illness
Caring for elderly family members
Lack of access to childcare
Other health/social challenges
What is the volunteering like?
The English Tutoring Program works one on one with newcomer students to help them develop basic English communication skills. Using a variety of resources, including our online educational resources, Cultural Connectors will help newcomers develop conversational English that will enable them to better navigate at the supermarket, bank, doctor appointments, etc.
We ask you to commit to 2 hours a week for 16 weeks.
