Compassionate and enthusiastic instructors (tutors) are critical to the process of helping the Literacy Council's adult students achieve their literacy goals.  

This training willl provide general information about adult literacy and explain how we provide ‘contextualized instruction’ to students. Our learning model helps men and women who read below a 12th grade reading level achieve life skill goals related to parenting, employment, civic engagement and health. Students--those who speak English and those who want to learn to speak English as a new language--meet these goals through the improvement of their English language skills.

Our goal for training is to give you the information you will need to complete the first six months of instruction.Once, matched with a student, the Council provides a curriculum teacher’s guide, student book and workbooks.
