ReadWest offers free one-to-one tutoring sessions for adults in the following areas:

Basic Literacy

Our volunteer tutors assist English speaking adult learners to raise their reading and writing levels in private, two hours sessions once a week. The weekly tutoring sessions are arranged according the student’s work and personal schedule.

English as a Second Language

Our volunteer tutors provide literacy and language acquisition services to adults for whom English is not a native language. Weekly, two hour, one-to-one sessions help learners acquire beginning English vocabulary and conversation as well as basic reading and writing instruction.

Computer Literacy

Tutors instruct their adult learner in basic computer use. In modules developed by ReadWest, students learn how to use the internet, set up an email account, send email with attachments, apply for jobs and other introductory computer uses. As society relies more and more on technology, it becomes necessary for everyone to become computer literate.
