Read. Learn. Grow. Adult literacy tutoring service for the New River Valley area at Virginia Tech

Here's the deal

Have some questions? We have answers.

Q: How much time is this going to take? My schedule's pretty tight. 

A: All we ask for is 1-2 hours of your time per week. 

Q: Is there training or anything? I don't really know anything about ESL or where to start.

A: Yep, there sure is! We will have a one hour training/information session at Newman Library. 

Q: Where will the tutoring sessions be held? 

A: Right here at Newman Library! 

Q: As hard as I try and study, I'm so bad at learning new languages, do I have to speak other languages? 

A: No worries, all you have to be is fluent in English! 

Make a difference!

Calling all tutors and volunteers! 

Want to make a difference in your community? Come volunteer at the new adult ESOL program that offers English conversation groups. These conversation groups serve as a place to learn English through discussing various topics of interest.

Our goal is to help foreign born adults achieve economic, educational and life goals through learning English as a new language.
