one-on-one tutoring at the library

VITAL tutoring rooms are open for in-person meetings

Please plan to discuss preferences for addressing health and safety needs while meeting. Masks are required for meetings in the Library. 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
