Adult Literacy

Learners

The Literacy Program offers one-on-one tutoring for adults that want to improve their literacy skills for personal or job related goals.  Tutors work with learners who have learning disabilities or are learning English as a second language. Literacy skills include basic English language speaking, reading, and writing. Basic math skills are also taught if needed.

Lack of literacy skills often stops individuals from getting a job or advancing in their present job.  It also interferes with every day communications such as speaking with or writing a note to their children’s teachers, doctors, or other providers of services they might need.  Some learners want to enter post-secondary education but do not have the needed English language skills to succeed.  Some learners want to earn a GED, but need the one-on-one tutoring that the technical colleges cannot provide.

If you are interested in being a learner please call 715-265-4271 x1314, or you can fill out our Online Service Application here.

Tutors

Tutors are community volunteers that are trained to deliver student-centered education. Training is provided free of cost.  Tutors are matched with Learners and meet with their Learners on a regular basis in public settings.
