Our volunteers are the heart of our program. They are instrumental in helping our learners improve their lives and those of their families through education.
Volunteers help immigrants and refugees learn English as a Second Language in our ESL program. They can also tutor GED/ABE learners in Math and Language Arts.
Volunteers may choose the academic area in which they want to tutor based on their personal preference and experience.
All tutors must have a high school diploma or GED and be at least 18 years of age. They must be able to provide their own transportation if tutoring in person, or their own equipment if tutoring virtually.
See Below for more information on various subject areas.

ABE (Adult Basic Education) is for learners who are working on the basics of reading, writing, and math to improve their lives. Sometimes, but not always, it is the ABE learner’s intention to eventually work towards their GED.
GED Preparation is for learners who are working toward their GED. They work with a tutor in the areas of Language Arts or Math. After finishing those subjects, they may work toward passing Science and Social Studies with the same tutor, another tutor, work on their own, or join one of our group classes.
This is a great opportunity for experienced tutors who would like to help new tutors succeed and help current tutors who request assistance. Please contact our Director, Denise Hilliard, or your program manager, Sister Mary Riley (GED/ABE or
Sister Robin Richard (ESL), if you are interested in helping other tutors in this way.
