Learning to read, write and speak English can be a daunting experience for many adults. However, at DePorres Place, learning is fun. That’s because we are unlike any other literacy center in Palm Beach County.
At DePorres Place, classes are small. Volunteer tutors teach classes either in small groups oone-to-one. Classes are held in a relaxed atmosphere, with staff and volunteers.
- Classes are held twice a week for 1 1/2 hours each, or once a week for 2 hours.
- Tutoring is continuous and lasts as long as the student wants to continue.
- There is no cost for the classes. Students pay for their own books, but those who cannot pay are provided with books at no charge.
- New students must register and take a placement test.
