The Skills in Computers & Literacy for Employment (SCALE) program provides one-to-one tutoring for adults with low literacy skills, using the computer as a learning tool. (This is not an ESL program.) During class, each tutor helps their assigned learner build basic reading, writing, and computer literacy skills. No experience needed; tutor training is provided. Weekly customized lesson plans are provided for each tutor/learner pair by the class Intern. The semesters for the SCALE program are:

SUMMER 2017 (June 5-Aug 18)
