One-to-one tutoring is provided to adults 18 and over who are seeking assistance with reading or math (below the 9th grade level) or English as a Second Language. We help students achieve their individual goals as they are paired with a trained tutor. Students and tutors meet in public places in Monroe County as they work together to achieve success.
SMALL GROUP INSTRUCTION
Skill Building classes reinforce basic math and reading skills for adult students entering the Tutoring Program. Access classes are small group classes in math and reading for students who are seeking access to basic literacy, high school equivalency or vocational training programs. Classes are conducted at LVR and at the Rochester Educational Opportunity Center (REOC) downtown.
Provides small groups of parents or caregivers and their children, ages 3-11. Parents are given tools to promote and support basic literacy for their children. These training sessions are sponsored by Greece Community Education and offered three times per year by LVR staff and volunteers.
English Conversation Groups
Conversation groups are groups of 8-12 learners and two tutors who meet weekly to practice their English-speaking skills. Our groups provide an opportunity for learners to improve their speaking confidence and meet other adults who are learning English. Conversation groups are not English classes. Topics usually covered in conversation groups include American culture and holidays, idioms, casual spoken English, and daily life situations (the bank, the post office, speaking with neighbors, etc.) All adults who want to practice their English- speaking skills are welcome at our groups. Registration is not required.
