Tutoring

Due to COVID-19, our programs may be operating with different procedures than what may be outlined below. For more information, please click here to see our updated schedule.

Education main page

Keystone’s Adult Education program offers free one-on-one and small group tutoring. Students interested in having a tutor must first attend an intake, orientation and assessment session with our tutor coordinator for level placement and goal setting. Students interested in tutoring must be able to meet with their tutors at least three hours per week. Students and tutors meet remotely via Zoom, in public places such as libraries, or at Keystone classroom sites.

Volunteers

Keystone’s Adult Education team and our students greatly appreciate and enjoy working with our volunteer tutors and classroom aides! Our dedicated volunteers help us achieve our program goals and are an important part of our student success stories. All adult education volunteers are supported by our tutor coordinator, who meets with volunteers to figure out the best fit, review student levels and goals, and to provide learning materials and support throughout the volunteer assignment.

Tutors

We are always looking for volunteer tutors to assist students in reaching their educational goals. Most tutoring sessions are 1.5 hours long, and are scheduled twice a week. We ask that potential volunteer tutors commit to six months of volunteering in our program. Volunteers interested in working one-on-one with students or working with a tutoring group must have a bachelor’s degree. Volunteers tutor students in English as a Second Language (ESL), EL/Civics, pre-high school equivalency, and high school equivalency. Free tutor training is provided for eligible volunteers.

Classroom Aides

Keystone is always looking for classroom aides to assist our instructors in both remote and in person classrooms. Classes meet twice a week for 2-3 hours, depending on the assignment.
