Please plan to discuss preferences for addressing health and safety needs while meeting. Fill out the request form to get started.

Free one-on-one tutoring for adults is provided by trained volunteers. Topics include reading, writing, math, and English-language skills. Tutors can also help learners prepare for the high school equivalency exam (HiSET®), driver's license test, and citizenship test.

To make an appointment, call 812-349-3173 or email vital [at] mcpl.info. Initial appointments are 45 minutes and include a skills assessment, learning preferences, and goal setting.

Learners will be matched with a tutor based on their mutual availability and learning preferences.

VITAL learners agree to:

  • Meet in a public location (not a private residence)
  • Schedule and keep weekly tutoring sessions
  • Contact their tutor in advance if they must cancel
  • Set goals and work towards them (a 6-month time commitment is suggested)
  • Be prepared for sessions with completed homework
