FAQ for tutor applicants

Q: What can I expect by joining Potencia?

A: You will teach 1-3 learners whose English skills are at similar levels. Now the classes are conducted online or in person on your campus, based on your preference. In addition, there is an amazing and inclusive tutor community for you to explore.

Q: I do not have any teaching experience. Can I still be a tutor?

A: Potencia does not require any teaching experience and offers tutor training before you jump into teaching. There are also class guidelines and materials that you can use as references.

Q: Does my learner speak basic English? If the learner does not understand English yet, how should we communicate?

A: Most of the learners are at around the basic to low-intermediate level. When your learner has difficulty in understanding your words, you can try using body language, facial expression, drawing/presentation, and even google translate - use your creativity!

Q: What are the class venues?

A: We recommend using Zoom or Google Meet. Zoom offers 40 minutes free meetings, and unlimited 1:1 meetings. If you have Zoom for Education, it also offers free unlimited meetings. Google Meet offers free unlimited one-on-one meetings and free one-hour group meetings.

Q: Who are my learners?

A: Most learners are Portuguese-, Chinese-, Korean-, and Spanish-speaking immigrants living in Boston, Chelsea, Everett, Malden, Medford, and Somerville. We also serve learners living in other parts of Massachusetts.

Q: How long is each class, and how many times per week?

A: Each class is 60 minutes. The number of classes per week is flexible.
