Adult Basic Education
Reading, Writing, and Math
The Adult Basic Education program is designed to help adults improve their reading, writing, and math skills, while achieving specific goals they want to accomplish as part of their learning experience.
Many adults born and raised in the United States are in need of help with basic literacy skills. One in every five adults is at the very lowest literacy skill level. Many of these adults come to us for help. Every adult learner receives a literacy assessment by a trained specialist. This assessment provides information on current literacy strengths as well as opportunity areas.
Students have a range of needs and interests
Many students want to find a job, receive a promotion, read to their grandchildren or to earn their GED. Others need help with basic skills, such as reading prescription medication instructions or writing out checks to pay their monthly bills.
Education that lasts a lifetime
Each student is matched with a trained volunteer tutor. Each tutor and student meet in our office, library or other location in the community on a weekly basis to work on improving basic skills. Depending on a student's needs, tutors may focus on pronouncing words, identifying and defining words, or bringing meaning to words and sentences.
The tutor and student together build a "portfolio" of accomplishments that track successes and highlight the student's work. For over 30 years we have been providing Adult Basic Education tutoring for adults in Winchester and surronding areas.
