Assisting adult learners to achieve their full potential
Every week someone walks into our office or calls the Literacy Program to ask about learning English. Some want to get a job, some want to advance in their job, some want to be able to talk with their child’s teachers. These motivated adults are waiting for you to call and become their tutor.
Tutors impart more than English. They have a wealth of information about how life works here in Santa Cruz County. They assist students in gaining the basic skills to go shopping, follow directions and they explain how people act socially and at work. In addition, our tutors provide the basic training for students to further their education and to obtain citizenship.
BE A VOLUNTEER TUTOR
