Become a Tutor
ALC relies upon dedicated, trained volunteers to provide one-on-one tutoring to the students. It is the tutors who make a life-changing impact in the lives of our students.
As a tutor you will:
Provide one-on-one instruction
Serve both native and non-native speakers
Assist in English speaking, reading, writing, and comprehension
Offer instruction in mathematics
Support in other life skills
Make a commitment of two to three hours per week.
Tutors must attend a training session before being paired with a student. Katie will reach out to you with the next applicable training date you can attend.
Students and tutors may work together anywhere from a few months to a few years. Often lasting bonds and friendships develop. To let the ALC know you're interested in becoming a tutor, submit the form below!

All tutors must attend a New Tutor Training Session before they can work with students. Because the training session includes reviewing the resources available at the ALC, our in house procedures and a tour of the ALC, it must be done in person. However, you may attend the session in person and then choose to work with your student virtually for now. We will be socially distanced at the session and all attendees will be required to wear masks (although we will have opportunities to take a "breather" outside for a few minutes at several points throughout the morning).
