What can I get help with?
What's the minimum time to work with a tutor?
To ensure availability to as many participants as possible, you are able to register for an one hour session weekly with a tutor at no cost. Your tutor may however schedule a mastery or practice test session for you which would extend your session for an additional thirty minutes.
Prior to each session your tutor will review the previous session feedback and establish a plan for you during the current session. In the event you are working with a different tutor, they will have the feedback from your prior session to develop a plan for you new session.
Can I review my previous sessions?
Provided the volunteer tutor is available you will be assigned to work with the same tutor. However, should your assigned tutor be unavailable you will be assigned to another tutor with-in the same program group for assistance.
