Adult Basic Education (ABE)

For adults who want to learn or improve reading, writing and/or math skills.

Adult Basic Education (ABE) is designed for adults who do not have a high school diploma but who want to learn or improve reading, writing and/or math skills, or for adults who have a high school diploma or GED but want a Math/Reading/Writing “Tune-up” to hone their skills in a particular subject.

  • Meet with your tutor in person at a convenient library location or at our office, or meet with your tutor online through Zoom. We will try to match you with a tutor that is available at a time convenient for you.
