Through tutors and reading specialists, Center of Hope offers a basic literacy program to students of any learning level. Through an assessment administered at the Center, tutors are able to customize a learning program for each student depending on their goal. This program focuses on adult learners who wish to obtain the knowledge and skills necessary to gain employment and self-sufficiency, obtain a secondary school credential, or help with college prep or work certifications.
For students who desire to earn their High School Equivalency, we offer students one-on-one tutoring in the four GED® testing areas: Reasoning Through Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and Mathematical Reasoning. Through an assessment administered at the Center, tutors will help analyze strengths and weaknesses and then customize a learning plan to help students succeed in all areas of the GED® test.
