Be a TUTOR WITH US
A Rewarding Experience
Who can be a Volunteer Tutor?
Anyone with sufficient knowledge and confidence using smartphones, tablets and laptops can be a Volunteer Tutor. A key skill required is patience to teach our 55+ seniors on what they want to know, giving them the confidence to broaden their skills in using their devices. The key ingredient to joining our team of Volunteer Tutors is your interest in experimenting with new and changing digital technology and sharing this knowledge. Displaying your excitement in these advancements reflects in your teaching which is integral in encouraging our learners. Your reward is an increase in your own skills and the satisfaction gained from being able to help others.
Our Club tutors volunteer to facilitate hourly, 1-on-1 sessions on a weekly basis with allocated learners. Tutoring is conducted by each tutor in the clubroom or online for 1 to 3 hours per week. Generally, a strong friendly rapport is built between both tutors and learners. Our Volunteer Tutors are encouraged to create a warm, friendly atmosphere to assist our senior members to learn at their own pace and are rewarded by the sincere appreciation and gratitude expressed by their learners. It is a valuable life experience.
Tutor membership is free and is open to anyone who has the skills and technical knowledge to navigate digital devices, smartphones, tablets and laptops. Whether you have proficiency in a single device, multiple devices, Apple, Android, PC, we definitely need your help. Those with an interest and understanding of smart home devices, or smart cars, are also welcome. As a Volunteer Tutor with our Club it is essential to be patient and engender confidence to guide our senior members into a comfortable learning experience. Most club members have little or no technical knowledge or understanding of digital devices.
