Mission Statement

To provide adult educational services to native speakers and immigrants that have difficulty reading, writing, comprehending and/or speaking English, preparing them with the necessary skills to achieve the highest quality of life possible

Description

We provide literary instruction for Hudson County residents aged eighteen and older. We offer tutoring in Basic Literacy (BL), English as a Second Language (ESL), Citizenship Preparation,* and Math. Computer assisted phonics instruction is available for BL and ESL students at the Main Library and a few branches.

We offer workshops to train volunteers to tutor adults in Basic Literacy and/or ESL. We also train volunteers to work as administrative assistants and to work with students in the Computer Lab. Our tutors’ educational backgrounds range from high school diplomas to advanced university degrees. They meet with their student for at least two hours each week and determine the location and time of their meeting, whether mornings, evenings, or Saturdays.
