"I have been involved in tutoring since age 15.  It has helped me acquire employment and gives me satisfaction when my students find a job or pass a major test."  - Tutor  Diane A. 

 

 

The Corona Public Library Adult Reading Assistance Program serves local patrons by providing free tutoring for English-speaking adults in basic reading and writing skills.  Students are matched one-to-one with volunteer tutors who meet with them at the library.

The program offers resources to assist adults in achieving their literacy-related goals. Fluent ESL adults are considered case by case; however, the primary purpose of this California State Library grant-funded program is to help those who grew up speaking English but ran up against roadblocks to their reading progress.

For more information, please contact Betty Luscher at 951-736-2389.

For ESL classes, please contact the Adult School at 951-736-3325.  Or visit their offices at 300 Buena Vista Avenue, Room 207 in Corona.

  "Tutoring an Adult Learner gives me the feeling of being a contribution to my community and our community is our home."  - Tutor Margaret F.

  

 

You don't need any special skills, college degrees or certificates - just interest, caring and patience.  If you do have experience with teaching, tutoring and/or working with people with special needs, we can definitely make use of those skills. Instructional books and materials are available for checkout at the library, and consumable workbooks and teacher's guides can be yours to keep. 

Scheduling is flexible - meet any time the library is open. Free study rooms and a learning lab are available for your use, along with software specifically for the adult beginning reader.
