The Adult Literacy Program works with adults 18 years-of-age and older to provide tutoring at no cost to the learner or tutor. The program provides a free 6-hour training course to teach volunteer tutors how to work with adults. Once enrolled, tutors will be required to submit a monthly report. Throughout the year, in-service training is offered to the tutors at no cost. In addition, the program provides the basic literacy materials needed for the tutoring process.
Basic English Tutoring
The tutors are paired one-on-one with adult learners based on the tutors interest (basic, intermediate, advanced reading, math, or English as a Second Language). As a Read To Succeed Adult Literacy tutor, you will meet 1 - 2 times a week for an hour or two each time with your designated learner. You will meet at a mutually-convenient, public place.
Read To Succeed hosts several ESL classes throughout the county for adults seeking to improve their reading, writing, listening and speaking abilities. Locations are available in Murfreesboro, LaVergne and Smyrna. Classes are open to new students in August and January. Tutors will meet with students in a class setting and work in small groups. Classes meet for 1 1/2 hours twice a week.

About Read To Succeed
P.O. Box 12161, Murfreesboro, TN 37129, US
Read To Succeed improves lives in Rutherford County by offering free literacy programs and events for adults and children. Read To Succeed supports this mission by fostering literacy partnerships between providers, educators, community helpers and business owners, creating events and programming to promote literacy and providing resources such as the Literacy Center and this website.
Read To Succeed was established in the summer of 2003. Paul Vaughan, Managing Director of the Jennings and Rebecca Jones Foundation, met with professionals who were involved in literacy programs in Murfreesboro. He offered the Foundation's resources as support to a new community literacy initiative and this group of dedicated educators, social workers, agency directors, community helpers and volunteers became the Read To Succeed Council. This community partnership was created to promote reading in Rutherford County, with emphasis on family literacy. Read to Succeed sponsors Reading in the Schools Day, Unplug and Read, Read To Bee, and Reader Training as part of its community initiative.
