Languages and Learning Center Launches Tutoring Program for Adult Learners

By Rachel H. RSS Tue, December 10, 2019

The Languages and Learning Center is excited to announce the Free Library of Philadelphia’s first tutoring program for adult learners. We are creating a tutoring program to support the estimated 550,000 Philadelphia adults who desire to secure wage sustaining employment, complete their high school education, learn English, or to simply improve their basic academic and digital skills. The program will begin at Parkway Central Library with the hope of extending throughout the Free Library of Philadelphia system.

From the adult who needs extra assistance with understanding GED Algebra to the grandmother who wants to learn how to read to her grandchildren, the convenience of receiving one-on-one tutoring at their library will help participants to achieve their individual learning goals.

If you are interested in tutoring at the Free Library of Philadelphia, please register for our Open House on January 9, 2020, and complete this form.

If you need a tutor, please fill out this form, and contact the Languages & Learning Center at 215-686-8664 / 215-686-5392 or

Have a question for Free Library staff? Please submit it to our Ask a Librarian page and receive a response within two business days.

Currently enrolled in courses to expand and accumulate and compact my capacity, I will be turning 55 in 2020 and have been concerned about my success rate particularly in the employment area. I am multi-lingual which can aid in the development of dyslexia and concept command. My literacy is a gathered group if elements and understandings of historical and current value-ADDED existence and I would appreciate the opportunity to converse and speak on various subjects of interest to me. I very much appreciate the contact of having being referred to Paul Walchak to help in the volunteer process and I look forward to attending the Open House on January 9, 2020. Please let me know of a suitable male companion with whom I can make contact. Hugo V.
