YOU CAN DO THIS!

Humboldt Literacy Project connects adults 18+ who wish to improve their reading and writing with adult volunteer tutors for free, confidential, one-on-one English language tutoring.

We work with all kinds of people. Most of our learners have very low writing and reading skills. A few are trying to improve their comprehension and composition at a college level. Several are learning English as a second language on their way to other goals. Learners must have the ability to maintain their own schedule and communications in order to work with an HLP tutor.

It all starts with you.

1. Complete our online intake form here. If you need help, you can ask a friend, or call us at (707)445-3655.

2. Contact us, let us know you submitted your intake form, and schedule a 20-30 minute intake session with us. We used to do this in person at our Eureka or Fortuna offices, but we are making use of videoconferencing and other technology until the current pandemic is brought under some kind of control. 

3. Check out your rights, here! This is supposed to be a good experience for you!

4. We frequently will match you with a tutor within a few weeks of intake and assessment. Sometimes we need more time, and we will let you know. You and your tutor will decide the best time and place for your studies, and discuss your most important goals, which your tutor has volunteered to help you achieve. 

This is a free service for the community. Learners never pay for the assistance they receive.
