Read To Succeedâ€™s Adult Literacy Program serves many different learners. Some learners are just beginning to learn to read, while others are more advanced and looking for help enrolling in college or earning their high school equivalency.
Recently a learner named Gregory came in to the Read To Succeed program. A very well-spoken young man, Gregory asked for help passing the HiSET, High School Equivalency Test, so that he could get a better job.
In just two months of math and reading tutoring, Gregory was ready for the test.
â€śGregory was so great to work with. He was always on time and prepared. He also was so thankful and kindâ€ť saida Read To Succeed tutor.
â€śIâ€™m thankful for finding the program because all the people were very nice, helpful, and professionalâ€ť said Gregory.
If youâ€™re interested in tutoring someone like Gregory, come to an upcoming tutor training on July 12 and 19 from 6-8 p.m. at the Lon Nuell Literacy Center in First Baptist Church (200 E. Main St., Murfreesboro). It is two sessions (for a total of four hours) to complete the training. Dinner will be provided both nights. Please RSVP if you plan to attend, or if you have other questions, contact Debbie Mankin, Adult Literacy Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org or (615) 738-7323.
