How do I become an Adult Education student?
We have a simple 5-step process to become a student in our Adult Education program.
Step 1: Call the Literacy Council.
Step 2: Schedule an appointment with Niki Paganelli.
Step 3: Complete assessment testing.
Step 4: Be matched with a tutor.
Step 5: Attend tutoring sessions.
Tutoring is free and one-on-one. You meet with your tutor two times per week, for one hour each session, for a duration of at least one year. Meeting times and locations are flexible to meet students’ needs. We ask that Adult Ed students make a donation of $5 to help cover costs of materials. However, we do have scholarships available for those who aren’t able to make this donation.
Our Ideal Student
The ideal student is motivated, sees the need for change, and wants help. Students’ goals can be anything from learning to read to a child to earning a High School Equivalency Diploma. Our students sometimes need encouragement to make that first step toward their goal.
