1. How do the volunteer hours counts

Your volunteer hours depend on the grade level of your students and each tutor session lasts 30 minutes. If you are tutoring 4th grade or under, you can earn 30*1.4 service hours. If students are between grade 5 and grade 8, your service hours will be calculated as 30*1.6. NECEF will automatically record your tutoring time via Zoom.

2. What platform do we use to tutor online?

We use Zoom as the tutoring Platform. You will need to use your email account (Gmail recommended) to create a Zoom account. Then, NECEF will link your Zoom account to our Zoom account system.

3.Will I receive training before the semester begins?

Yes, NECEF will provide basic training for our volunteer tutors before the beginning of the semester. The training includes simple technical operation for online tutoring, and the basic principle of tutoring and teaching skills. We will also offer service hours for our attendance to the training.
