The Basic & Transitional Studies Volunteer Tutoring Program provides individual and small group tutoring for students enrolled in Seattle Central classes (Adult Basic Education, GED, and English as a Second Language classes), so that they can emerge from education with the skills needed to advance closer towards their aspirations, goals, and life needs.

We match volunteer tutors and students for 1-3 hours per week. All tutoring happens online, most often on Zoom, or in-person.

  • If you’re a student interested in getting a tutor, please complete a Tutoring Request Form for more information.
  • If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer tutor, please complete a Volunteer Application for more information.
