ReadWest strives to provide its students with basic literacy, English language skills and computer skills needed to improve their employability, parenting and life skills. We provide a safe environment and hope for each student entering our facility. A student’s success is our success! ReadWest offers free one-to-one tutoring sessions for adults in the following areas:

High School
Equivalency Prep

A one-to-one tutor will instruct adult learners one subject at a time. There are 5 sections on the HiSET exam.   At intake a pretest will be given to the adult learner. Then we ask the student to schedule the sections of the test they passed on the pretest. After passing the sections the student knows we move on to the next highest graded section of the pretest until all sections are passed.


Our volunteer tutors assist English speaking adult learners to raise their reading and writing levels in private, two hours sessions once a week. The weekly tutoring sessions are arranged according to the student’s work and personal schedule.

English As A
Second Language

Tutors provide literacy and language acquisition services to adults for whom English is not a native language. Weekly, two hour, one-to-one sessions help learners acquire beginning English vocabulary and conversation as well as basic reading and writing instruction.


Tutors instruct their adult learner in basic computer use. In modules developed by GCF Global, students learn how to use the internet, set up an email account, send an email with attachments, apply for jobs and other introductory computer uses.
