Share the joy of reading in your community by becoming a ONE TO ONE
virtual volunteer tutor.
ONE TO ONE connects emerging readers with volunteer tutors across
Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. We know that this valuable connection between
tutors and students directly affects their confidence and chance of succeeding
academically and in life.
For Fall 2021, we are looking for volunteer tutors for
our virtual after-school program (3:30-6 pm). You will read once a week for 2-3
hours from October to June, excluding school holidays. The students will be at
home with a parent/caregiver nearby in case they need technical support. We are
looking for volunteers who are comfortable with technology and reading with
children in a virtual environment. Virtual tutoring requires:
or Laptop computer
and stable internet connection
- Confidence scheduling and hosting Zoom
meetings, working with several online tools simultaneously, and
familiarity with basic technology (hosting a Zoom meeting, muting and
unmuting, chat function etc.)
We’ll teach you the rest and ensure you have the
practice and support before you get started on your reading journey.
It’s easy to get started – fill out an application form online, complete
a free criminal record check and then have a chat with ONE TO ONE on the phone
to make sure we’re a good match. Initial training sessions for new volunteers
will be held in September 2021.
