Our mission is to provide support for a continuum of learning beginning in first grade through all of an adult's life as each student strives to meet personal goals and develop his or her potential.
We tutor children and teenagers to improve reading and math skills. We tutor young children and adults who are reinforcing basic skills, Pre-GED and GED, or who need help with other coursework. We also tutor persons whose first language is not English and who want to improve their English language skills.
There is no charge to the students and all tutoring is provided as a free service. However, students who do not keep scheduled appointments or call ahead when canceling is necessary will be discontinued.
Students who are interested in tutoring assistance are signed up and sometimes assessed by the Literacy Supervisor to determine what their educational needs are. Students are matched with a tutor who is knowledgeable or trained to work with their needs and able to meet at mutually agreed upon times. All tutoring takes place at the library and sessions generally last from 1/2 to 1 hour.
Tutoring can take place any time the library is open and is only conducted at the library.

Books and DVD's are available for checkout on learning disabilities, reading, math, science, social studies, English, pre-GED preparation, and citizenship. We can also refer you to other educational opportunities in Michigan City.
