Mission Statement

ReadWest's mission is to provide quality one-to-one tutoring to adults seeking to transform their lives through enhanced literacy skills.


ReadWest has been helping adults learn to read, write, and speak English for over 30 years. Trained volunteers meet with an adult learner once a week for two hours. We help improve the reading and writing levels of English speakers. We also help English Language Learners acquire survival English and workplace vocabulary. NO teaching experience needed. We have an all English approach, so NO foreign language experience is required.

Would you recommend ReadWest, Inc.?

by Muncie H. from Rio Rancho, NM (Administrator for this Organization) (February 28, 2012)
ReadWest trains you to help adults with poor reading skills improve their reading and writing abilities. They also train volunteers to help an adult learn to speak English as a second language. You don't need to speak a foreign language to tutor. After your training you are matched with a student and meet once a week for two hours. It's fun to learn about other cultures as you teach them survival English phrases and vocabulary. It's equally rewarding to help an adult learn to read. It opens new worlds to an individual as soon as he learns to read.
