The Adult Learner Services offers small group instruction whenever possible in basic reading, writing, math, English as a second language (ESL), and preparation for the HiSET exam. Volunteer tutors receive training and on-going support as they work in partnership with their students to reach individual educational goals.
The heart of the program lies in one-to-one tutoring. Meetings with the volunteer tutor are private and happen at a time and place that is mutually convenient. Many people find they flourish with the personalized attention they receive.
Small Group Classes
Some areas in the state provide small group instruction for ESL, HiSET preparation, or basic skills. Time and length of sessions vary from place to place.
