Welcome New Students!

Attend your weekly sessions. Our program has limited spaces for committed students. If you need to cancel a meeting, please let your buddy know at least 24 hours in advance. If possible, reschedule the meeting with other times that work for you. Prepare for your sessions if your buddy sends you material to go over.
Communication is key! If your buddy is sending you too many materials to prepare in advance, please let them know! If you have anything you want to discuss with your buddy (e.g. you are struggling with grammar or certain vocabulary) or an idea for a fun activity, let them know so they can prepare for your session.
Don't be rude!
Do not share your buddy's contact information, messages, or other details without their permission. Please respect their privacy!
Please stay in contact with us, so we can make sure you have the best experience as possible. We will reach out occasionally to make sure everything is going well.
Please let us know if you need to leave the program. Do not suddenly disappear!
