STUDENTS (ADULT LEARNERS)
Students for our program must be adults (over 18). Usually something traumatic has happened in their lives to bring them to Literacy Volunteers.
Reasons why adults enter program:
Each situation is different. Many are afraid of schools and teachers because they had a bad experience. Students have very low self-esteem. We try to help them to believe they can do better and that they are important. They have usually quit everything else in life. They have started but due to a lack of motivation and necessary skills--have not finished. Students often have poor time management skills and sometimes making an appointment is a goal in and of itself. Student Tutor teams should always meet in a Public place. If other arrangements need to be made contact the LVA Office at 296-3400.
