Improve Reading, Writing and Computer Skills

Do you need a tutor to help you read or write better? Your tutor will help you with things you want to learn so that you are able to read a book, write a letter, fill out a job application, learn how to use a computer, or understand information from your doctor. We are here to help! Here is a list of weekly tutoring groups held every semester:

  • Tuesday nights, 6:00-8:00pm at Hawthorne Library
  • Tuesday nights, 6:00-8:00pm at Seven Oaks
  • Wednesday mornings, 10:30am-12:30pm at Goodman South Library
  • Thursday nights, 6:00-8:00pm at Literacy Network
  • Thursday nights, 6:00-8:00pm at Meadowridge Library

If you register to attend a tutoring group you must attend every week for the entire semester. To register or get more information contact Ezi Adesi, the Adult Basic Education Director at (608) 244-3911 ext 10 or email ezi@litnetwork.org
