Expectations of Tutors

  • Arrive at Two Together no later than 3:30, preferably earlier so that youhave time to prepare for the arrival of your student. The student you are tutoring is your responsibility from arrival at Two Together until they are picked up at 200 Green Street around 5 pm.   If you can’t stay the entire time, please notify a staff member at the beginning of the session.

  • We need to know the days when you are volunteering/working.  If you need to cancel, please call us as soon as possible at 434-9055.
