Our tutoring program is learner-centered, based on each adult learner's personal, literacy-related goals
, such as write an email message, help a child with homework, get a better job, or get a driver license. Annually, we help about 250-350 learners improve their skills and reach their goals with the help of over 200 volunteer tutors who provide 15,000-20,000 instructional hours. Reading-writing and/or English language instructional materials are provided to assist the learner with skill development, but these should be complemented by additional real-life materials, resources, and other practice activities to help the learner achieve their personal goals. Tutors are not expected to stick to a set curriculum or timeline but instead are encouraged to be creative and learn what works best for their learner, and what motivates their learner.
