Types of Learners
Adult literacy learners may be working on reading, writing or math skills to get or keep a job, or to get a promotion. Others may want to read books with their children. Still others may be learning English as a second or third language.
Many just want to be able to better navigate a world that relies on written communication.
Adult learners are courageous individuals who decide the time is now to tackle their greatest obstacle. All they need is an interested tutor who is willing to share the knowledge and skills that open the doors to the world of literacy. Gorge Literacy assists adult learners with a wide range of topics:
- Adult Basic Education (ABE)
- General Education Development (GED)
