Adult Literacy

One-on-one tutoring on basic reading and writing skills is available to English-speaking adults free of charge. Volunteer tutors are trained and certified by a national organization, ProLiteracy, which has been shown to be a very effective means to teach adults how to read. Volunteers and students are matched up and usually meet weekly at their own specified time and place.
