Free Literacy Tuition

The first step is the hardest. Ring us now to get free help on 09-280-4348 or 0800-891-339.

Free Literacy Lessons

  • Volunteer coaches help our students with reading, writing and spelling.
  • Coaches talk with the students by phone or Skype for 30 minutes a day, for 3-5 days a week.
  • There is nowhere in NZ that is too far away for us to help you.

To become a student, you need to live in a rural area anywhere in NZ where you can’t get to an adult literacy centre, or to be isolated by other circumstances.

  • The pilot programme being run in 2018 is limited by funding to 30 boys from years 11-13.
  • The camps are free to the families. We ask schools to make a donation of $100 per student but this is not mandatory.
  • In 2018 camp sponsors are Waikato District Council.

Workplace Literacy Tuition

  • Workplaces can access the free literacy service.
  • Should a company require a literacy tuition service tailored for its own situation, we can provide a tutor on a cost-recovery-only basis, which currently works out at around $60 per hour plus travel.

Literacy Hubs in Your Community

We collaborate with other community organisations to provide free adult literacy tuition for their local community. You can start a hub with just one student.We can:

  • Provide you with volunteer literacy coaches OR train your own volunteers to be literacy coaches.
  • Provide supervision and mentoring for the coaches – yours or ours.
  • Provide access to online practice software to speed up learning.

What the other organisation contributes:

  • The people, the place, the computers and the internet
  • A designated liaison person
