Learn about being a Tutor


The Siena Learning Center currently serves 100 adult learners being served every week. Our 56 volunteer tutors support those learners with their time and talent.

Your tax-deductible gift helps us reach adults who want to learn English, to purchase books and supplies, and to subscribe to services to train our tutors to teach more effectively.

A gift of $100 will pay for the materials that a learner and a tutor need for an academic year.

We welcome your donations to support the dreams of our learners!
