This issue is all about International Women's Day, Easter, and Passover!
Greetings, Tutors!

It’s hard to believe spring is on the horizon. Every year, the cold days of winter melt away, and spring brings a new beginning. We feel genuine excitement and happiness when the first sunny, warm days arrive. Spring is ushers in regeneration, new beginnings, and growth.

As we prepare to step into this new period of revitalization, let your student’s commitment to learning English, become citizens, get better jobs, and reinvent themselves in pursuit of the American dream inspire you to keep looking forward.

As always, please do not hesitate to reach out if you have questions or need help with tutoring strategies during this time. Be well and take care.

With gratitude and hope,

Your Tutor Support Specialist
Tutor Engagement

  • Post-Testing: Contact Karin Johnsey to schedule a virtual or in-person session. Students need to be post-tested after every 30-35 hours of tutoring time. Both tutor and student can be included in the assessment process virtually if desired.  

  • Do YOU have a question, idea, or opportunity to share? Email Carol, and your contribution may be featured in an upcoming issue!
