Students interested in improving their skills in reading, writing, math and/or English Language skills can register for a tutor.
First, students may call and register over the phone for a meeting with a volunteer evaluator. Next, all learners are interviewed and take a placement test before being put on the waiting list for a tutor. Most students are quickly matched with a tutor depending on their abilities and availability.
Cultural literacy is the ability to understand and participate fully in a culture; the ability to understand its signs and symbols, its social and historical references, its jokes, idiomatic espressions, etc. This knowledge is essential for the complete understanding of reading, writing and other cultural media.
Students interested in understanding American culture will benefit from exposure to the experiences of the members of that culture, such as our tutors.
We offer citizenship classes, citizenship tutoring, and mock citizenship interviews. An assessment of speaking and literacy levels will be administered and if the students' English language skills are not at the level needed to pass the citizenship test, they will be referred to an English Language tutor first.
