What are the expectations for students?

Your tutor is a volunteer and has agreed to meet with you for 1½ hours per week to help you learn English. Before starting classes with us, we hope you will commit to meeting with your tutor once a week for one year.

When are classes offered?

Classes meet weekly for ninety-minutes in public locations such as libraries, schools, churches and restaurants. We have classes six days a week, mornings, afternoons and evenings. We work with our students’ schedules and match each with a tutor at a time and place that fits into your schedule.
