Project Literacy offers evening and day classes that meet twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays as well as classes that meet once a week on Saturday mornings and Sunday afternoons. We also provide small groups that meet throughout the week focusing on grammar, conversation, reading and writing, TOEFL, citizenship, etc.  

In addition to classes, Project Literacy also has a team of trained tutors that can work with you one on one in the library or online.
