One-to-One Tutoring

Our program is flexible.

What: You choose what you want to learn. These are your goals. Your tutor will create lessons just for you.  For example, you can learn how to:

  • Apply for a job,
  • Read a book to your children,
  • Make a doctor's appointment,
  • Get a driver's license, and so much more! 

When: You choose when you want to schedule your lessons. You decide with your tutor on a day and time for lessons.

Where: You and your tutor decide where you will meet. During the COVID-19 pandemic, you will learn online using the internet. After COVID-19, lessons will be in the library or a public place.

How Long: You will meet with your tutor every week for one hour. The time you spend with LVSC will depend on you. Every student is different.
