pumpkin-151743_1280We are thankful for our learners, volunteers, and friends who support our mission. Happy Thanksgiving!

Our mission is to support the literacy goals of adults and families living in Southwest Minnesota through personalized quality tutoring, community partnerships, and advocacy.

Our schedule for the week of 11/23-11/27/2015:

Due to the Thanksgiving Holiday and travel schedules for some of our tutors, most of our classes will not meet this week, including ECFE/Family Literacy, STEAM-ed at Marshall Middle School, and Tech Tutors at the Marshall-Lyon County Library

Drop-in tutoring for adults will meet this Tuesday, November 24, 2015, from 7 to 9 p.m. at St. Stephen Lutheran Church, 1301 South 4th Street, Marshall, MN.

We welcome questions from potential learners and volunteers. Please email us at literacy.swmn@gmail.com or call at 507-401-7337 for more information.

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,  math, computer use, GED (high school equivalency) preparation, or English for non-native speakers.  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.

Our website still waits patiently for us to update it and make it more user-friendly. Thank you for doing the same!
