One-on-one Adult Tutoring Program
The Adult Literacy Program works with adults 18 years-of-age and older to provide one-on-one tutoring in basic literacy at no cost to the learner. The program provides a free 6-hour training course to teach volunteer tutors how to work with adults. The tutors are then paired one-on-one with adult learners based on the tutors interest (basic, intermediate, advanced reading, math, or English as a Second Language). As a Read To Succeed Adult Literacy tutor, you will meet 1 – 2 times a week for an hour or two each time with your designated learner. You will meet at a mutually-convenient, public place. Once enrolled, tutors will be required to submit a monthly report. Throughout the year, inservice training is offered to the tutors at no cost. In addition, the program provides the basic literacy materials needed for the tutoring process. Read To Succeed currently has 35 tutor-learner pairs, though this number fluctuates throughout the year, usually peaking in the spring and summer.
