Literacy Advance of Houston
November 11, 2012

Literacy Advance is a great organization for someone interested in volunteering through tutoring / or for getting free ESL, ABE and other "literacy" classes. The organization is very well run, and it has great teaching resources to make tutoring interesting and truly beneficial for both volunteers and students. As an ESL tutor I enjoy having access to many teaching books, instructions, CDs, manipulatives, DVDs, etc! So far, the students I have met at Literacy Advance are motivated and serious about learning and assimilating in the U.S., so I feel like my volunteering really makes a difference. The classes take place in a nice, clean environment; the central office is fantastic, it looks professional. Tutoring is well structured; there is a strict attendance policy for students, clear schedules and simple reports policy which helps the tutor to keep continuance of educational process. So far I am very happy to volunteer for Literacy Advance!
