Steps to Become a Student
- Please contact the Literacy Council of Benton County to set an appointment for your interview. Phone number to call is (479) 273-3486.
- We will fill out an application to put you on the Student Waiting List. If you have a social security card, please bring this to your first appointment or we will be unable to complete your application. You may also need to bring an interpreter to help with any questions we will have for you.
- When a volunteer tutor becomes available, Students and Tutors are matched based on times you are both free to meet, and personal interests.
- We will call you to schedule your first assessment to determine which books are right for you. We will also schedule an initial session with your tutor. At this session Students and Tutors meet, plan their meeting schedule and begin to get to know each other. Students and Tutors also check out their first set of books for the training.
