Programs: LVSSC adopts a learner centered, flexible approach in the personalized tutoring of reading, writing, listening, and speaking English, both in one-to-one and small group instruction. Real life communication is stressed in English as a Second Languages (ESL) with attention to both the students' speaking skills and their ability to listen and understand.

Progress is measured by increased life skills and reaching personal goals. Basic Literacy students learn to read and write using training materials appropriate for their skill level as well as everyday reading materials such as newspapers and magazines.

ESL beginners with no English-speaking abilities and advanced learners who want to improve their language skills and /or take the test for U.S. citizenship will each be able to meet their objectives.

A customized approach to tutoring is designed to help individual learners in a manner appropriate to their learning styles, goals, and literacy proficiencies.

Mission:
LVSSC's mission is to provide one-on-one tutoring and small group classes for English as a Second Language (ESL) and Basic Literacy at no cost to adult learners.
Results:
• We trained and supported new community volunteers to be effective tutors and sustainingly responded to the growing need for literacy services.

• We successfully reached out to ESL and Basic Literacy students and assisted adult learners in improving their English skills, obtaining their U.S.citizenship, reaching a better understanding of their medical condition, facilitating communication with their child's teacher, and/or increasing their chances of getting a better job.

• Our Speakers Bureau and a variety of Community Outreach Events have increased awareness in South County of our mission and programs.
