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 are 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, or virtually. The learner determines the goals and objectives of the learning experience, whether it's improving vocabulary to read to grandchildren, obtaining a driver's license, passing a test to get a promotion or to obtain the 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 online resources.

GED Preparation

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, 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.
