Reimagining adult language education

About Us

Potencia trains college students as volunteer tutors to teach English to adults with limited English language skills in the communities. 

Our tutors lead one-on-one or small-group classes on university campuses or virtually.  

In order to solve global problems,
you have to solve the problems of individuals.
