Review for Project Adult Literacy AKA Newport/Mesa ProLiteracy, Newport Beach, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I'm thrilled to be a volunteer in the Literacy Program. Experiencing isolation during the Covid-19 pandemic is a salutary reminder of how our learners feel when unable to communicate easily in English. It's so rewarding to see a learner grow in confidence and language ability as we guide them in their sessions. In fact, I think literacy teaching is a two way street with both learner and tutor benefitting in equal measure. The program is incredibly well run by our program director, Cherall Weiss, a consummate professional who brings so much good experience to this program . I have benefitted so much from her advice and from the assistance of the literacy staff at NBPL.

Review for Project Adult Literacy AKA Newport/Mesa ProLiteracy, Newport Beach, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

As a literacy tutor I've seen what confidence refining one's English skills has on my learner's life. As a member of the community I've had the opportunity to recommend that a Turkish mom should consider the free literacy classes available to her at the Newport Beach public library. Presently this mother is struggling with understanding requirements at her son's elementary school and having to speak to the school nurse.
