So far we have been able to be open for the last two snow events, however it depends on the condition of the roads. Tutors and students can meet at their discretion. Contact each other directly to arrange meeting and rescheduling since there may not be anyone in the office to retrieve messages. BE SAFE!
HOW IT WORKS
Adult Community Education of Louisa County trains volunteers to work one on one with Adult Learners. Learners set their own goals, and ACE volunteers help them achieve them. After being matched, student and tutor work together to set meeting times and establish a plan to meet their goals.
1 in 5 Americans can’t fill out a job application, read a bedtime story, read warning labels on medications. . .
1 in 6 adults in Louisa County have no High School Diploma.
GED PREPARATION – After initial intake and assessment students are matched one-on-one with a volunteer tutor to work at their own pace on the subjects or skills they need to study in order to pass the GED. Our computer lab is available to supplement their learning between tutoring sessions.
BASIC LITERACY – Whether the goal is GED or not our basic literacy program is customized and includes a one-on-one tutor match to teach any reading level from beginning phonics to improving reading comprehension. Computer lab is available to supplement literacy instruction.
ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) – Tuesday night English class provides group instruction and is supplemented between classes by Rosetta Stone in our computer lab.
FAMILY READING MENTORS – Students who are parents of elementary school children are matched one-on-one with family mentors who give parents the help and confidence to communicate with teachers, decipher school correspondence, help with homework, attend conferences and school activities and to participate in their children’s education.
GETTING STARTED - Call to make an appointment to discuss your goals. If you get the answering machine, leave a message giving the best time to reach you. Once you are assessed you will be matched with a tutor to begin instruction. Go to our GED page for more information on the GED.
