The Ionia County Literacy Council is best known for its tutoring programs. Volunteer tutors are trained to teach adult learners how to read or improve their reading skills, improve their basic math skills, and/or learn English as a second language.
Tutoring is offered on an individual or small-group basis. Individual tutoring takes place in a public location -- most generally a community library. Small group reading and math classes can be offered with a literacy council volunteer tutor at Jean Harker middle school in Saranac. Math and computer classes are offered at Sozos in Ionia (Monday & Thursday). Call 616-485-1135 to sign up.
The Ionia County Literacy Council works with local businesses to tutor those employees in the workplace who need improvement in their reading skills, which can help them perform better on the job, especially in situations where job skills in the workplace are changing.
