Adult Learning Program

The Adult Learning Program at Literacy Mid-South has provided small group and one-on-one education services to adults who read on a 6th-grade level or below for more than thirty years.

How We Teach

Small Learning Groups:

Adult learners on the same grade level work in small learning groups facilitated by volunteer instructors who use innovative, collaborative learning models that make use of real-world examples and allow the students to learn at their own pace.


Individual Tutoring:

Volunteers work one-on-one with adult learners to help them achieve their educational or personal goals like driver's education preparation or credential attainment.

Literacy Mid-South offers tutor training workshops several times a year for volunteer 18 years of age or older.
