Adult Literacy

Placentia Library District provides one-on-one tutoring for adults who want to improve their basic English skills. Tutoring is a six-month to one-year program where the learners focus on achieving personal goals through reading, writing, speaking, and listening practice and is offered at flexible days and times that work for you.  

Become a Learner

Placentia Library's free literacy instruction is open to adults 18 years or older who want to improve their reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills in order to achieve personal literacy goals such as:  

  • Communicate with your children’s teachers 

  • Read a book or newspaper  

  • Help a child with homework  

  • Get a job  

  • Obtain a high school equivalency certificate  

Adult literacy tutoring can also be a stepping stone to other educational opportunities, such as a community college course, GED testing, or U.S. citizenship.
