Children suffer from their parents' low literacy. ReadWest's program strengthens a parent's ability to
participate in their child's education. Parents who
read create children who read.
The simplest jobs require reading at a 6th-grade level or better. One-to-one tutoring at ReadWest in reading and writing
helps prepare adults to take the HSE, attain better
employment and further their education.
Job applications for work are often filled out on a computer. ReadWest offers basic computer literacy to its adult learners
with direct, hands-on instruction with a trained tutor.

Did you know?

1 out of every 5 New Mexican adults reads below the 5th-grade level.

Simple everyday tasks can present real problems. Following street signs, reading bus schedules, filling out job applications or reading prescription labels can be very frustrating and even frightening to an adult who struggles to read. ReadWest helps adult learners of English with basic vocabulary, communication for many life and cultural situations as well as helps them to become literate in reading and writing English.
