Thank you for your patience as we re-launch our remote tutoring program. Here is when you can expect to hear from us with next steps:
1-2 weeks – tutors who volunteered remotely in the Spring.
2-4 weeks – tutors who told us they’re ready to tutor their previous student or are willing to be matched with a new student.
3-5 weeks – new tutors and those who need some time to get comfortable with remote tutoring before they start.
5+ weeks on – we will continue to place tutors throughout the year as new students and volunteers join our program.
Please reach out to Cynthia Wiggin with any questions or concerns about remote tutoring, or how to set up, or conduct a Zoom tutoring session. Read below for information about new training and workshops developed especially for you. We’ve also added lots of resources to Tutor Corner on our website, so be sure to check that out, or watch this 2 minute video tour, and let us know if we are missing anything!

HOT TIP! Zooming in on…
If you’re not a Zoom expert yet, don’t worry! To tutor remotely you don’t need to be an expert and we are here to help you get started and make the most of using Zoom to work with your student.
Once you’ve been matched with your student, you will set up a recurring Zoom meeting link so that you and your student know exactly where to go for your tutoring sessions. This link can be saved or bookmarked for easy access week after week.
We’ve created a factsheet here that will give you step-by-step instructions. Go here to check out all of our Zoom resources.
Check your inbox!
We will be reaching out by email when we are ready to match you with a new or returning student! Be sure to keep an eye on your inbox so you don’t miss our email.
