Volunteer

Tutors

Siena Learning Center relies on our volunteer tutors!

Though many of our tutors have been with us since the Center’s opening, we always need more generous volunteers to meet the one-to-one needs of our learners.

If you speak English, you can teach it.

We meet many people who believe they can’t effectively teach English if they can’t speak the learner’s language. But, if you speak English, you can teach it. We take the time to assist you in developing the necessary skills to help tutors succeed.

Our tutors

  • commit to work one-to-one with an adult learner one hour per week.
  • do not need previous experience.
  • are provided with training and materials.
  • need only to speak English.
  • should be at least 21 years of age and be able to offer one┬áhour a week.

Matching Tutors with Learners

We match tutors and learners based on scheduling availability.

Once a match between a tutor and a learner is made, we provide training and materials for the tutor with the needs of the specific learner in mind. Classes begin once the tutor is comfortable with the teaching process.
