Citizenship Tutoring

Volunteer helping a student

Trained volunteer tutors help you prepare for your interview, civics exam, and English skills tests.

To work with a citizenship tutor, you must have

  • Applied for U.S. Citizenship,
  • Completed your biometrics appointment, and
  • Received the date of your naturalization interview.

After completing the Citizenship Tutoring request form, we will contact you within a week to explain the process and get you started with a tutor.

Naturalization Interviews

Trained volunteers will act as Naturalization Officers and ask you the types of questions you'll face in your interview.

Practice listening to different styles of questions from multiple interviewers, test your English skills, and gain confidence. Plus, get final tips in planning for your real interview!

Three or four practice interviews are generally done 2-3 days before your interview date and take about 1 1/2 - 2 hours total.
