IMPROVING SOMEONE'S LIFE IS ONLY A STEP
The first phone call I answered at LAB was from a person who could hardly catch his breath, he was so nervous. He said he had called 3 times and always hung up before speaking.
Taking the first step to take on a commitment of time for any adult is a difficult decision. There are so many factors: family, job, community obligations that have priority for those precious ‘spare’ hours of time in your life. But maybe, all those other factors–family, job, community -will also benefit if you learn to read, write, and comprehend as an adult; maybe you’ll grow confident around others, if you spend time weekly with a tutor who will help you speak the American English language just like they do.
Whether you are 18 or 80, many others have found that working with a tutor, one on one, can change your life forever. It is scary. It is hard work. LAB tutors are your dedicated cheerleaders.
We look forward to answering any questions you may have. CALL: 321-301-4496 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
When a new student comes to Literacy for Adults in Brevard(LAB) with an interest in improving their education, an accurate picture of their starting point is crucial. An interview and assessment help determine the best curricula to utilize as well as identify the potential tutor.
Volunteer tutors work one-on-one with students using nationally accredited curricular to teach relevant literacy skills. Tutors can interchange the level of curriculum whenever needed to ensure their student is making progress at their own pace. Tutors and students together will determine the day, time, and library where they will hold their 90-minuteweekly sessions.
Tutors and students determine together what day of the week and time they will meet as well as which library. LAB expectations are that you will meet every week for 60 –90 minutes. You and your tutor will determine when a need arises to change your regular schedule.
Currently, tutoring is done at the Public Libraries throughout Brevard County. Most frequently: West Melbourne Library; Cocoa Central Library; Sun tree Library; Eau Galle Library; Titusville Library, and Satellite Beach Library.
