About 25% of the people in the U.S. have difficulty with some part of the English language; reading, writing, spelling, grammar, etc.  For many of those people, the problems they have with reading or writing then causes them to have difficulty getting jobs with steady hours, and good pay and benefits with which to support their families.

Read Up Adult Literacy at Nevada County Library has a free, confidential program to help people strengthen those reading, writing and math skills by pairing them with a Volunteer Tutor/Instructor.  The Student and the Tutor pick the day and time that they want to meet each week for 1-2 hours to work on the Student’s needs.  They are free to meet in public locations such as the library, government facilities, church meeting rooms, restaurants, etc., but not in each other’s homes.  The one-on-one pairing of the Student and Tutor has proven to be a very successful method of overcoming many of the difficulties that Students have experience with learning in the past. 

For information on how to enroll, or how to volunteer, call Alan Archer at Nevada County Library, 470.2772.
