Track 1 encompasses the English tutoring portion of TNKR’s volunteer services, and is intended for refugees whose English ability is limited or who wish to boost their existing skills through private, personalized lessons with native English-speaking teachers. Track 1 includes volunteer orientations, refugee-tutor matching sessions, and one-on-one lessons arranged between tutors and their students. All lessons in Track 1 are conducted in person and utilize a student-centered learning model, which prioritizes refugees’ personal study goals and interests.
Track 2 is designed for refugees who wish to focus on improving their public speaking, presentation, and writing skills. As with Track 1, refugees in Track 2 receive one-on-one coaching from a native English-speaking mentor. Refugees in Track 2 might wish to prepare for and practice giving business or educational presentations, polish their writing in order to publish a book or essay, or improve their public speaking skills.
