WHAT DO VOLUNTEER TUTORS DO?
Tutoring sessions might include: informal conversations, games, virtual outings and sharing of social events. It's really up to the tutor and learner to decide what kinds of activities work best. The important thing is to work with your student with what they need and want. Tutors use communication skills to introduce learners to community resources, including Skeena Diversity’s programs and services, tutors provide a listening ear when students are sharing their life challenges or successes. As a tutor, you are assisting in the student’s integration to their new life in Canada and expanding their connection beyond those who speak their own language. You are opening doors to their active participation in Canadian life and society. Tutors usually meet with their students at least once a week.
