  • Enhance a learner’s primary instruction by working with an individual or small group on topics, such as Spelling and Job-specific literacy tasks
  • Help a learner practice writing by serving as an online pen pal
  • Teach special short-term classes to meet learner needs, like Job Interview Skills, How to Register to Vote, How to use the Library, and Test-taking Skills
  • Start a book discussion group
