  1. I would like to help teach an illiterate adult to read. He is extremely intelligent, had a successful homebuilding/cabinet making business and has functioned fully, with support from his wife (to read necessary info to him). He can only read a few simple words. What website can I go to (not an expensive one like Syllivan learning center) to get materials to help him. He can use the computer, if she pulls up his favorite site “Craigs List” for farm items. So he could use the internet with her support. I have tried to find apps for my kindle, to no avail. He would not bother to use the children apps or books as that would be demeaning to him. Have contacted the local community college and county library, with no results. Also there are no nearby adult literacy classes in our area. I need materials, CD’s, internet or whatever to help him begin this journey. Any information you give me will be greatly appreciated. Thank you. P. Jackson

  2. Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us.

  3. Hello, P. Jackson, Thank you so much for reaching out in an effort to help friend learn to read. Where do you live? We can try to help you find local resources once we know this information. Another great resource is the National Literacy Directory, found here: Best wishes, Ashley Lasher

    My husband and I are thinking of moving to North Carolina. I am an adult literacy instructor, as well as an ESL instructor. Is there a website to help look for jobs in your state?

    Thank you so much for any ideas you can share. DCR

  5. Thanks for being a good person and helping adults
