Our mission: To support the literacy goals of adults living in Southwest Minnesota through quality tutoring, community partnerships, and advocacy.
We welcome questions from learners and possible volunteers. Please email Charlotte at firstname.lastname@example.org or give her a call at 507-401-7337. NAVIGATING OUR SITE: If you’re looking for a tutor, click For Learners. If you are interested in tutor training, click For Tutors. If you’d like to know more about other volunteer opportunities, click Volunteering. We work with adult learners who are at least 17 years old and no longer in high school. We offer tutoring in reading, writing, speaking, listening, basic math, basic computer use, GED (high school equivalency) preparation, or ESL (English as a second or other language). For more information, please click For Learners. Tutors receive professional training and continuing education. Anyone 18 or older who can read, write, and speak English well can be trained as a literacy tutor. Tutors do not need to be professional teachers or have a college degree. Potential tutors complete a registration form and are required to participate in an interview. For more information, please click For Tutors. We are partners with Marshall Adult Education, the Marshall-Lyon County Public Library, and other area organizations who support literacy. Our website is always a work in progress. Please check often for updates!
