ADULT BASIC EDUCATION (ABE) READING PROGRAM

 

The reading program utilizes a phonics-based multi-sensory curriculum that assists a variety of students in achieving their goals. Students are continually evaluated to monitor their progress, including assessments at intake and comparing scores after six months.

The average student attends three hours of one-on-one tutoring a week at our convenient downtown location. Students advance at their own pace and many discover a new confidence in their abilities.

Our specialized mode of "one tutor/one student" has a direct effect on student development. The communication that is built is a lasting bond that inspires and motivates student and tutor alike.

 

Meet Andrew

2016 STUDENT OF INSPIRATION - ABE

The version of Andrew who enrolled in ABE in autumn of 2012 was quiet and aloof; he kept to himself to hide his literacy challenges. As his reading and writing improved, Andrew let down his guard and revealed his thoughtful, compassionate nature. Andrew's personal growth has mirrored his academic development and fostered a deep sense of pride and focused inspiration among all who know him. Today's version of Andrew isn't afraid to dream; above all else, he has learned to believe in himself.
