Program Overview

Adult One-to-One Tutoring

The Lee County Literacy Coalition (LCLC) offers one-to-one tutoring for reading, writing, math, computer,. Once a learner and tutor is paired, an introduction is scheduled. Learners and tutors then agree on weekly session times and location. Sessions are generally one hour and are hosted at a public library, the LCLC office and virtually. The learner determines the goals and objectives of the learning experience, whether it's improving their vocabulary to read to their grandchildren, obtaining a driver's license, passing a test to get a promotion or to obtain your GED. Volunteers receive a Basic Tutor Training to gain the needed fundamentals to assist adult learners that emphasize respect and confidentiality. Continued education opportunities are provided via webinar, meetings and on-line resources.

GED Preparation
