Our free tutor training courses will take place at Vestry Hall as soon as the venue reopens to the public. At the moment training and support activities for tutors take place online on Zoom. Contact Sophie for further details.

The training gives an overview of different aspects of learning and teaching a language.

It prepares tutors for teaching 1 to 1 in the home.

It also introduces volunteers to the charity.

All volunteer tutors need to commit themselves for at least 6 months following training.

Matching With A Learner

Once the course and the DBS check are completed, we try to match volunteers with a suitable learner as soon as possible, taking into account volunteer preferences and how easy it is to reach a learner’s home.

For the first visit to the learner’s home, an assessor goes with the volunteer to introduce them.

The learner and volunteer tutor can then agree on a day and time for the lesson.

Lesson Plans

Some tutors like to work together on preparing their lessons, especially to start with.

Tutors can also keep in contact by phone or email to discuss their tutoring. Some tutors meet up at least once a term to compare notes
