Tutors engage immigrant/refugee learners (grades 1-12) by providing tutoring in school subjects (i.e. English, Math, Science, Social Science). Tutors help students build academic skills, develop better study habits, improve self-confidence, and achieve success in school and life. Tutors are a vital part of the academic support network for immigrant and refugee children and youth. Time commitment is 2 hours per week, as per volunteer’s availability and the program’s demand.
