Charles County Literacy Council

The Charles County Literacy Council provides free one-on-one tutoring in reading, basic math, and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) to our adult students, including those who request help with math and reading comprehension so they can pass the ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) and go on to serve our country. Your financial donations ensure that we can continue to provide these much needed services to our community.

Welcome to 2021, a new year and a clean slate!
This is a great time to start anew, or to continue on your path to success.
COVID-19 is still a concern around the world and in our community,
and CCLC will continue to inform our tutors and adult learners and follow the
guidelines established here in Charles County to keep us all safe and healthy. 
Therefore, we will continue to tutor virtually, using distance learning to bring
exciting new lessons to our adult learners. Please view the video
below for a glimpse at how one of our tutors engages
with her student in the subject of math.
