Frequently Asked Questions
Palmetto Literacy Council is in Horry County because there is a need. We are here to help school-age children to 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.
Tutoring sessions are 2 hours each week. We hope our volunteers who are helping in other ways spend at least 2 hours each week as well. However, we also encourage those that have the time volunteer as a tutor and/or on committees (see volunteer opportunities).
