ADULT BASIC LITERACY AND ESL RESOURCES & FORMS
We hope you will find some links on this website useful. If you find any that are not on here, please share them with us!
The links below are helpful for both students and tutors to local libraries, online learning programs, and local agencies. These websites are designed to encourage our students to learn more and to give our tutors interesting teaching ideas.
If you find some on your own that are great, please let us know—or, if you find one here that is no longer available, please let us know that too. We want to keep our resources current and helpful to all.
We are here to support and help you. If you need any suggestions on how to further help your student; if you feel that he/she is not progressing as they should, let us know. We might be able to provide you with some ideas and materials that will be useful.
It is also important that your student be re-tested regularly so we can monitor progress and/or identify a problem. Please call our office to schedule an assessment if you haven’t recently.
Please understand that the reports we ask you to fill out are required by NYS Dept. of Education, and other funders. We cannot exist without your reports.
You are changing the lives of adults and their children in the most profound and lasting way, for that, we cannot thank you enough.
