If you or someone you know is interested in improving their reading, writing, math, and/or English Language skills and is at least 16 years old, our tutoring program may be the answer! Potential Adult Basic Education (Basic) or English Language Learners (ELL) students can register for a tutor. There are three parts to the intake process for getting a tutor.
Basic learners may call the office and register over the phone for their intake and assessment. Our number is 920-435-2474.
ELL learners are evaluated for class or tutor placement by the Program Manager-ELL Classes. These evaluations take place the first 2 weeks of each month on:
Mondays 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. or 6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
Tuesdays 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. or 6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
Next, all learners take a written test of reading and writing skills. Testing takes place most Tuesdays at 5:30 p.m. and Fridays at 9:00 a.m.
Finally, all learners are interviewed by a volunteer evaluator and take additional placement tests before being placed on the waiting list for a tutor. Most students wait about 3-4 months before being matched with a tutor depending on their abilities and availability.
Cost: $25 for registration (current students are FREE) + the cost of books once you are matched with a tutor. Financial assistance is available.
