One-to-One Tutoring

The tutoring program is the core program of LVA. We provide individualized, learner-directed instruction through trained volunteer tutors. The instructor teaches skills that are relevant and important to the individual's self-identified goals.


Regarded as one of the most effective methods of basic literacy instruction, one-to-one tutoring focuses entirely on adult learners' particular needs, interests, and strengths. Learners and tutors meet once a week at times and locations that are mutually convenient. Many learners meet at D.C. public libraries.


Before being matched with a tutor, we require all learners to demonstrate commitment by attending small-group classes for about a month.
