Literacy Help & Upgrading

Literacy Help & Upgrading

We offer 1-on-1 tutoring.

We think it's never too late to pick up where you left off and learn more. Ask us how we can help you begin upgrading your education for free. With a tutor, you can:

  • Improve your skills in reading, writing, and math.
  • Prepare for your GED (General Education Development) test.

What you will be doing

  • Meet weekly with your volunteer tutor for 1-on-1 sessions.
  • Set a learning plan that fits your schedule.
  • Set learning goals to reach at your own pace.
