FAQS

What if I will be away and miss some of my scheduled tutoring session?
We’ll either find a replacement or the student will skip that session. We understand that some events in life need to take priority over volunteer commitments. As long as you can keep a consistent schedule more of the time, that’s perfectly fine with us!
What if I am unable to submit a request for criminal record check online?
Please read our detailed instructions for completing a criminal records check as we have offered some tips to help you be successful with the process. If you are still not able ot submit hte request online, you can bring a piece of government issued photo identification with you to a training session and fill out a paper form. We will check your ID and submit the form for you.
I have no tutoring experience. Am I qualified?
If you love children and love reading, you’re fully qualified to join us. We’ll make sure you have all the tools and training you need. Please note: our tutors must be at least 18 years old and proficient in English. Volunteers must commit to a regular weekly shift of two or three hours from approximately October to June. We welcome volunteers with varying physical abilities, though our volunteers are expected to meet students in their classroom and write notes on students’ progress.
What if I have more time available and want to take on more than one shift?
We’d be thrilled to assign you another for another shift at the same school.
