Adult Education

Individualized Instruction in English as a Second Language for Adults

Since 1996, Aquinas Literacy Center has offered individualized instruction in the English language to the adult immigrant population of McKinley Park and surrounding areas (Bridgeport, Back of the Yards and Brighton Park) of Chicago. Through one-on-one tutoring, combined with supplemental learning opportunities (conversation classes, book clubs and writing workshops) and a computer learning center, learners are empowered to transform their lives by acquiring skills to become successful parents, productive workers and responsible citizens. Annually, 150 volunteer literacy tutors instruct 200 adult learners.

Aquinas Literacy Center is sponsored by the Adrian Dominican Sisters.
