Adult Reading Classes

One out of ten Knox County adults cannot read or write above a 6th grade level. Friends of Literacy’s Adult Reading Classes are the only classes in Knoxville that teach basic reading skills for adults. Classes meet twice a week for one and a half hour sessions, for a total of three hours per student each week. The classes are led by a reading specialist and assisted by dedicated volunteers.  Classes meet at our Hill Avenue Office and are held in the afternoon on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Also, students who would like extra help can request a tutor at no charge.

To learn more about our Adult Reading program or to enroll in classes, please contact us at 865-549-7007 or email us at info@friendsofliteracy.org.
