About Our Tutoring Program

Howard and Evanston Community Center

Howard and Evanston Community Center's adult volunteer literacy program assists adult learners in achieving their academic goals. Students are matched with volunteer tutors to work on English language acquisition, GED prep, digital literacy, mathematics, or other skills. We aim to help students obtain the literacy skills needed to successfully navigate the workforce, training programs, and post-secondary education, leading to self-sufficiency and productive lives. 

Student and tutor matches usually meet once or twice a week for around 1 to 2 hours. Matches are made after tutors complete a Literacy Works training, observe one of our ESL/GED classes, and meet with the Adult Volunteer Literacy Coordinator.

Tutors create learning environments where each person's dignity, worth and complexity are recognized and celebrated. We believe that learning is a lifelong journey, and we all have something to teach and learn from each other in a dynamic learning community.
