Partners in Reading
What Does Partners in Reading Do?
We provide free one-to-one and small group tutoring for adults whose reading or writing skills are below the ninth grade level. To qualify as a learner, an adult needs to speak and understand English at a conversational level. Tutoring is provided by trained volunteers at the King Library, a San José Public Library system branch, or another public site in San José. Tutors and learners are required to make a six-month commitment to meet three hours per week.
