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.
One -to-One GED prep is available for Language Arts Reading & Writing, Math, Science, and Social Studies. The Math portion involves understanding fractions, multiplication/division, word problems, and basic geometry and algebra. The Science and Social Studies portions primarily involve reading comprehension where the information is provided and the answer must be determined.
