Literacy Help & Upgrading

1-on-1 Tutoring

Reading, Writing, Math Skills & GED Preparation

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.

About you

  • over 19 years old.
  • have not completed a high school diploma.
  • have been out of school for one year or more.

We have been careful in planning your Library experience, for your safety and convenience. Tell us which location, day, and time fits your schedule best from September 2020 to June 2021.
