Please reach out to Rocío Vallejo-Alegre (email, [email protected] or leave a phone message at 585-298-7079) if you and your family are interested in participating in our classes or if you would like to tutor with us!
Prospective tutors can come to observe a class and see if it would be the right experience for them. We accept tutors from SUNY Geneseo and community members who are interested to learn, teach, and build cross-cultural bridges.

Are you a SUNY Geneseo student interested in gaining internship credit and experience?
We plan to work face to face in Spring 2022 (pending COVID-19 restrictions). We remain flexible to changes as we follow guidelines to ensure the safety of our members.
Note that this internship is a two-semester commitment. New interns have the opportunity to team up with the tutors who have been working with us for the last two semesters. This will be a training semester to allow them to learn about the methods we use and interact with the members of our community (our students) to be ready to work independently during their second semester. We find this longer commitment important to developing deeper connections building community.

Type of Internship: TUTOR Course INTD 395
- Our tutor interns have the responsibility for helping our family members (students: adults and/or children) to learn the local culture, the English language, and provide support on school subjects as needed. They assess, assist, and encourage the students in the learning processes under the TOGETHER Guidelines. They develop syllabi, lesson plans, and didactic materials to support the learning, keep updating our students’ information (personal and academic), implement feedback from the students, and share their personal feedback at the end of the semester as input to ensure the quality of the services provided.
It is possible to have a 1-, 2-, or 3- credit internship. Credit information:
