In addition to our traditional one-on-one tutoring program for adults, we are often in need of some tutoring in other areas. Please take note of the programs, requirements and expectations.
If accepted as a volunteer, you will have a chance to discuss these options with our staff during your initial training session. Learn more about becoming a volunteer.
Adult Education Classes
We work closely with the Buffalo Public Schools Adult Education Department and Orleans-Niagara BOCES, who provide a variety of classroom instruction for ELL, ABE (Adult Basic Education) and HSE (High School Equivalency) preparation. We always have teachers who are looking for volunteers to assist their class and provide extra one-on-one support to those struggling. Classes are held throughout Buffalo & Niagara Falls. This type of option provides a slightly more flexible time commitment than our traditional one-on-one tutoring which requires a one-year commitment.
- Complete Basic Literacy or ELL tutor training track (depending on class type)
- Be comfortable with your teaching/tutoring abilities to work with students in this setting
- Attend class for at least 2 hours per week – it would be best to pick a consistent day to go on a weekly basis
