A. Students hear about LVM from a variety of sources, mostly by word of mouth from friends, relatives, employers, health care professionals or other students. They also hear about LVM from public service announcements, social service agencies, libraries and other adult education programs.
Prior to being matched, students come to LVM for an initial intake interview which includes a personal history and information about interests, learning styles, goals and tutor preferences. Staff also explains the tutoring commitment and what to expect so students can make a realistic decision about whether LVM’s tutoring program is suitable for them at this time. An assessment is also conducted to determine the student’s skill level.
