Getting A Tutor

How to Get a Basic Reading tutor

  1. Call 301-600-2066 or stop by the Literacy Council office at 110 E. Patrick St. You will be asked to give your name, phone number and address.
  2. The Basic Coordinator will then call you to set up a time for you to come to the Literacy Council office to take a placement test. This meeting takes between 30 and 45 minutes.
  3. Then the Basic Coordinator will match you with a tutor when one is available. There is usually a waiting list of students, so it may take a month or more before you are matched with a tutor. Please be patient as it will be worth your time.
  4. Once the coordinator has matched you with a tutor, the tutor will call to set up your first meeting.

How to a Get an ESL Tutor

  1. Come into the Literacy Council Office at 110 E. Patrick Street to fill out a registration form and take a short placement test.
  2. You may bring a translator with you if necessary.
  3. The ESL Coordinator will then pair you with a tutor and the tutor will call you to arrange a meeting place and time. There is a waiting list so it may take up to two weeks for a tutor to call you.
  4. If it is impossible for you personally to come into the Literacy Council Office, call 301-600-2066 and your information will be taken over the telephone. However, it will still be necessary for you to come into the Literacy Council office to take the placement test. A tutor search will not be started until you take the placement test.
  5. It is necessary for you to have transportation to your meeting place.

How To Get Into A Conversation Class

  1. Conversation classes are available during the day and evening.
  2. Have the office staffer indicate on the form you fill out that you are interested in a conversation class.
  3. The ESL coordinator will decide, after reviewing your placement test and comments by the office staffer, whether or not you are ready for this type class.
  4. If you are and there is room, the tutor of the class will call you within two weeks.
