COVID-19 and The Learner Center
Literacy for Life’s learning center has reopened at reduced capacity.
Because of restrictions related to COVID, only two pairs will be able to meet in our space at a time. Tutors who are able to effectively administer remote instruction are encouraged to continue to do so. Pairs desiring to meet at the School of Education must meet only in our offices. Common areas throughout the building are not available at this time.
Any pairs wanting to come into the office for tutoring must make an appointment. Appointments can be made by phone at (757)221-3325. Appointments can also be made to pick up and return resources as needed. Please keep in mind that this has the potential to change at any time.
