Our Skills in Computers & Literacy for Employment (SCALE) program focuses on teaching adults basic computer and literacy skills (vocabulary, spelling, using email, filling out online forms, or basic Word/Excel formatting). (NOTE: This is NOT an ESL program.) Tutors work in weekly 2-hour classes with their assigned student, and this commitment is for one semester. Training and lesson plans are provided, and an instructor is available every class to offer you and your student support as needed.FALL SEMESTER 2018
