Literacy Advance of Houston



Volunteer tutors teach small groups of adults in one of two programs, English as a Second Language (ESL), or Adult Basic Education (ABE).

ESL classes focus on helping non-English speakers to communicate in English so that they may function with greater confidence in the Houston community. Learners are placed in classes according to their ability level, to form groups of around 5 or 6. Tutors do NOT need to speak another language to be an ESL instructor as we strongly encourage all classes to be conducted in English.

ABE classes are for native English speakers who need help with their basic reading and writing skills. These classes are generally taught one-on-one.

Literacy Advance offers classes at many sites throughout Houston, so it's likely that a tutor would be able to teach near their home or work. As always, the tutor determines his or her own teaching schedule, including tutoring days and start date.

Mission: The mission of Literacy Advance is to transform lives and communities through the doorway of literacy.
