Do you need individualized attention for math?
Math is not your run-of-the-mill classroom subject. Not a lot of people are good at math, and not all people who are good at it can teach it. At the Berkeley County Adult Learning Center, we have trained math tutors from the Literacy Volunteers of the Eastern Panhandle who volunteer to help our students with this difficult subject. Math tutoring is available at our learning center.
