DePorres Place, Inc.


 Basic Literacy

 Tutors teach reading and writing to English-speaking adults over the  age of 18, who are out of school and reading below an eighth grade  level. 

Students who come to our program may have left school early, in order to find employment, or they may struggle with reading because of a learning disability.  Our tutors teach students one-on-one, and tailor the learning to the student's needs.

Many students who reach their reading goals at DePorres Place go on to a GED preparation program and/or to college. 

 English for Speakers of Other Languages -  ESOL

Tutors teach conversational English to adults who speak little or no English.  Instruction is one-on-one or in small groups with no more than five students.

 Computer Lab

A computer lab with many interactive software programs is available for student use five days a week.


 Conversation Sessions

Tutors and students frequently gather for conversation over coffee or tea.  Topics for discussion arise from the group.  This gives the students an opportunity to practice their English speaking skills in an informal, relaxed environment.

 Lending Library

The lending library consists of books written for the adult learner at different reading levels, including classics, popular fiction, encyclopedias, dictionaries, and books on history, geography, and English grammar.  Tutors and students may check out books to take home or use in class.
