Basic Literacy

For adults 16 years of age and older who are no longer attending school and want to increase their literacy skills, Literacy Solutions NY provides free, one-to-one, confidential tutoring. Students are matched with a properly trained and certified volunteer tutor. Students and tutors work together to define the student’s goals, and they design lesson plans that help accomplish those goals. Tutors meet with students at a mutually agreed upon time and place, usually a local library, church or school. Meetings are held once a week and last 1–2 hours.

This program is for adults who are new speakers of English and are interested in improving their conversational speaking, listening and reading skills. Literacy Solutions NY provides free, one-to-one tutoring. Whenever possible, students are matched with a tutor who speaks their language. Students and tutors work together to define the student’s goals and they design lesson plans that help accomplish those goals. Tutors meet with students at a mutually agreed upon time and place, usually a local library, church or school. Meetings are held once a week and last 1–2 hours.

Computer Literacy

At the Yonkers Learning Center, Literacy Solutions NY provides access to a small computer learning lab with ESOL and basic literacy software for students to enhance their one-on-one and small group learning experiences.

U.S. Civics for Immigrants (USCFI)

Recent immigrants need to understand American civics and society in order to become more productive and successful members of our communities. Literacy Solutions NY has created a powerful tool to address this need – a classroom curriculum that specifically targets non-English speakers who may have low literacy in their home languages. USCFI stresses real life topics of immediate relevance to recent immigrants. As a result of focus group research, ten topics have been identified:

  • Family
  • Getting comfortable in the US
  • Housing
  • Faith in Institutions
  • Education
  • Employment
  • Health and Safety
  • Police and Judiciary
  • Government
  • Community

Since inception, two additional modules have been added:

  • Financial Literacy
  • Consumer Awareness
