What is Adult Literacy?

Adult Literacy is using printed and written information to function in society, to achieve one's goals, and to develop one's knowledge and potential.

What type of learners do we tutor?
Adults who read below the ninth grade level or speak English at a beginning level to improve their reading, writing, math or their use of English as a new language.

Where are the tutoring locations?
The locations are primarily at the LLCC Centers throughout the district.  There are other locations such as local libraries or community centers.

Also, submission of hours and a learner progress sheet to your region coordinator monthly are required.
Time requirements for tutors are minimum of 1 hour per week.
