Reading for Adults

One-on-one reading help for parents of young children and other adults

We focus on the basics of reading to help adults achieve their reading goals.  We help parents feel more comfortable reading with their children.  We also work with adults who don’t have children who want to improve their reading for other reasons.  You can join a class that meets weekly online and work with a tutor one-on-one to improve your reading skills.

English for Parents

Group English classes for parents of young children

We provide free English classes in person, hybrid, or fully online for parents, grandparents, and caregivers of young children. Our curriculum focuses on health literacy and everyday language to support parents in advocating for the needs of their families. During online sessions, students have the opportunity of engaging in small group conversation practice with a native English-speaking partner to build their confidence.
