We help English-speaking adults 18 years and older improve reading and writing skills so you can reach your potential as workers, parents, community members and life-long learners. Our trained volunteer tutors will meet with you one-on-one or in a small group setting. You will learn what you need at your own pace and will be able to apply new skills to your lives. We can help you with personal learning goals such as:

  • Passing GED or high school equivalency
  • Reading to your children or grandchildren
  • Studying for U.S. citizenship
  • Improving spelling, writing, grammar and pronunciation
  • Enhancing your job prospects
  • Using computers and understanding technology
