Literacy – Spanning the US: Decatur GA :: Stillwater OK :: Canton OH :: Jacksonville NC :: Mattapoisett MA



Adult learning program at Mattapoisett Library

Adults who need to improve their reading and writing, or to learn more technical skills, can take advantage of free tutoring at the Mattapoisett Library.

As part of an adult literacy program called A.L.L. (Adults Learn at the Library), tutors have been trained to provide educational support for English language learning, basic reading and writing, and preparation for the high school equivalency exam (now called the HiSet).

The program was funded through a grant from the Phyllis W. McGillicuddy Charitable Trust, and Deena Kinsky serves as its coordinator. Kinsky meets with and trains tutors and works with adult learners to understand their learning goals. Out-of-school youth over the age of 16 are also encouraged to get assistance at the library with taking the high school equivalency exam. The program isn't intended to tutor students currently in school.  READ MORE @
