Basic Literacy is a program for adults who want to develop and/or improve their reading and writing skills. A tutor works one-on-one with a student in a supportive, self-paced environment to develop an individual plan to help the student attain his/her personal goals. Goals cover a wide variety of topics including everything from life skills (like making a grocery list, writing a check, reading to children/grandchildren) to preparing for higher education opportunities like the GED. Sessions are usually held twice a week for 1 1/2 hours per class. Both daytime and evening classes are available. Students are given a written assessment at registration to determine reading level.
