Adults who have difficulty speaking, reading and writing English are eligible for this program. Students are "pre-tested" either orally or in writing to determine their learning level. Students of the same level are then matched with a tutor in small group classes. 

There is a $50 annual student tuition payment due after you are matched with your tutor.

Learning for a Lifetime

Our students have different goals for learning English. For some, they want to find a new job or get a better job. Some want to become a U.S. Citizen. For others, they want to improve their family life by getting more involved with their child’s schooling.

Take a look at some of their successes to see if you could picture yourself achieving these goals too.

​Tutors and students meet weekly for 90 minutes in public locations such as libraries, churches, or businesses. The office finds a schedule that works for everyone and allows students to still be involved with child care, work and home responsibilities while attending English classes.

​​​In weekly classes, tutors and students use Laubach workbooks and reading texts to improve a student’s ability to read, write and speak English. Classes are conducted by ProLiteracy trained tutors in English to give a student more experience with the English language.
