Who are our students?

School Children

School-age Children – Children who are enrolled in school, public, private, parochial, or home-school who are in the general education programs and are struggling with reading, writing, and/or math.

English Language Learners

While our programs are not designed specifically for English Language Learners (ELL), our programs are all designed to be adapted to help those who want to learn to read in the English language.

Adults

Adults who desire to learn to read, write, and/or do basic math. Adults may want to learn these skills simply because they want to learn. Other adults may want to be taught reading, writing, and/or math to prepare themselves to go back to school to get their GED. Still other adults may be enrolled in GED classes and are needing some extra help. We provide tutoring for all of those students.

What Do You Have To Do?

We ask our students to:

  • Attend tutoring sessions for 2 hours each week
  • Attend an introductory meeting with the staff of the Palmetto Literacy Council
  • Provide any paperwork (if available) that might help the staff get to know the student better. This may include Individual Education Plans (IEPs), Evaluations completed by the school, Progress Reports (report cards), or documents that indicate a possible starting point 
  • Let the staff person know what subject is of major concern (reading, writing, or math)
  • Attend a meeting for a brief assessment. This assessment determines which program will be used and where the student will start.
  • Attend a meeting with staff from Palmetto Literacy Council and their Tutor!
