Project Literacy provides free english and math tutoring for adults and reading support for children.
We match learners with trained volunteer tutors in order to provide free one-on-one English and Math literacy tutoring.
We partner with local schools to provide reading support to children in grades 1-4 so they can improve their reading skills and do better in school.
Our community of tutors is comprised of university students, teachers, professionals, trades people, and retired persons. Many have English as a Second Language training and experience. During recent years, we have found that the caliber of our English tutors and Math tutors continues to improve steadily – matching increasingly complex learner needs.
All our tutors receive training and on-going support to ensure they have the necessary tools to help learners achieve their personal, academic or vocational goals.
At any one time we have more than 100 active tutor/learner matches.
The ability to communicate with fellow citizens, keep a job or secure a new one, enroll in higher education or overcome a dependency on social assistance, have been important milestones achieved by many of our learners.
