Frequently Asked Questions
Palmetto Literacy Council is in Horry County because there is a need. We are here to help school-age children and adults learn how to read, write, and do basic math to function and/or earn a GED, high school diploma, or succeed in school.
The simple answer is no, they do not qualify for tutoring. Palmetto Literacy Council is here to help those school-age children to adults who struggle to learn basic reading, writing, and math skills. We suggest advanced students seek assistance from their instructors or a tutoring program designed for advanced learning.
Tutors are asked to commit 2 hours each week for tutoring sessions. We hope our non-tutor volunteers (those who are helping in other ways) spend about 2 hours each week as well. However, if you can’t make that time commitment, we can still use your help at our events! (see volunteer opportunities).
