Adult Literacy Program Volunteer
Tutors work with adults who are learning the English language skills necessary for living and working in our community. Tutors work one-on-one with individuals who either desire to acquire English language skills or citizenship preparation. Most students possess limited English. Tutors will use materials given to them or create appropriate materials to meet the student’s listening, speaking, reading, and writing needs.
