We can help adults where college is within reach, but still need some help getting there.
Test Score Improvement
Some colleges give students a college readiness assessment such as a writing, reading or math test. We can provide a tutor to brush up on skills!To get into a technical college, we provide tutors for help on the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE), COMPASS and ASSET assessments. We also help English as a second language (ESL) students with the TOEFL examination.
Math can be the biggest fear to attending college! Some of us can say, “I haven’t did math in 20 years!” A one-on-one volunteer can help you gain the confidence, teach and review math by providing help with basic multiplication and division, decimals, fractions and percentages, algebra and geometry.
Writing can also be daunting! Many classes require papers. If you are not used to the academic rigor of college, we can help by building your skills and feeling confident to attend college.
Basic and Advanced Technology Skills
Students are required to organize PowerPoint presentations, complete online research and know all Microsoft applications. We can provide support for you in learning these skills.
