Get ready for a new year of Habla!!

Hey there returning and prospective Habla tutors! We’re super excited for Habla this year and are looking forward to all of the learning and community we’ll be having together, between Stanford students and Stanford workers and all of our community partners–because that’s what this group is all about. We hope you’re equally (or more?!) excited to get to really know your tutee, share your stories, and learn from their stories as you take a little time out of your schedules to help them improve their English.

If you’ve already signed up to express your interest (probably at the Haas Public Service Open House or the upcoming Activities Fair on Friday), then expect a short form/survey in your inbox by this weekend to fill out your basic contact info and available days to teach (Día or Noche). There will also be a link on this site once that’s sent out.

In the meantime, if this will be your first quarter tutoring with us, make sure you can attend one of the MANDATORY training sessions for new tutors either this Monday, Oct 3 or Tuesday, Oct 4 from 7-9pm at El Centro. Returning tutors are also encouraged to attend because we’ll be doing some things differently this year and there will be some useful info/demonstrations on what the sessions will look like, resources we’ll put out regularly this year so you can get familiar with the lessons before the actual class, adjusting for more or less advanced tutees, how to best guide your tutee while minimizing the amount of Spanish you need to use when they need extra explanation, and so on.

That’s all for now. If you have any questions, use the contact form on this site. Get excited!!
