We work with adult learners who are at least 16 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.
