BECOME A VOLUNTEER TUTOR
Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer literacy tutor with ONE TO ONE.
We are currently looking for volunteers who are comfortable reading in a virtual environment. Virtual tutoring requires a suitable device such as a Desktop or Laptop computer, a fast and stable internet connection, experience scheduling and hosting Zoom calls, experience with sharing your screen and using the whiteboard features, and confidence using two online tools simultaneously.
No prior tutoring experience? No problem! We have training and practice sessions based on the success of our past volunteer tutors.
“I was pleasantly surprised to find that it is possible to have the same level of connection [through virtual tutoring]. The kids were a bit shy to start, but as soon as we found books they enjoyed, they were their usual selves.”
– A ONE TO ONE Tutor
We are re-launching our in-person tutoring program slowly in January 2022 to give schools a chance to welcome back staff and students in a post-Covid environment.
Please indicate on your volunteer application which program you’re interested in participating in or both!
Volunteer applications received now will be for the 2021/2022 school year. Volunteer opportunities are limited, and we will contact applicants as needed. We will welcome new volunteer tutors in January 2022.
Volunteer tutors support students by engaging them to build their literacy and self- reading skills, documenting student’s progress along the way.
Tutors must be at least 18 years of age, proficient in English and complete a criminal record check. We provide tutors orientation, training and ongoing support.
The volunteers are expected to commit to a morning or afternoon tutoring shift of 2-3 hours per week.
