Adults Remain On Our Wait List
There are  80 potential learners currently on our waiting list. These learners need to be tested before they can enter the program, and are not ready to be matched.

We do everything we can to match our tutors and learners as fast as possible. We must find a pair that has the same availability , and this often slows down the process.  
If you are currently waiting for a learner, we are working on setting up a match meeting as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience. 

If you have specific questions please contact Jody.
