TRAINING SESSIONS

These sessions are mandatory.

  • The first is an orientation, registration, and shift scheduling session.
  • Second, on-site training features immigration and naturalization information, exercises on aging and cultural sensitivity, web tools, and tips for developing yourself as a tutor.
  • Lastly, our mid-semester Reflection Workshop provides a forum for any problems and observations that may have arisen during the first few weeks of tutoring and allows students to “own” the program by developing it together. It also provides help for writing your reflection papers and focuses on sharing and learning from the adult students.

Training dates, times, and locations are listed in the table below along with what you should expect to bring along with you.

***At the Orientation, please come ready with your first & second choice for a tutorial shift and $5 for a field book. Sign-up is on a first-come, first-served basis and we do not guarantee you will get your first choice.

MAKE-UPS

Any time missed (absences, tardies, holidays, etc.), must be made-up. Make-up work is scheduled by making arrangements with a tutor coordinator to attend another shift.

Each shift is 2 hours long, and punctuality is important. Prior to the beginning of their shift, tutors must inform their shift coordinator if they will be absent/late. Tutors are expected to focus on two areas: understanding and passing the INS exam, and conversational English.
