The Ascension Parish Library Adult Literacy Program can help you with
reading, writing, and speaking the English language. We provide various
levels of English language tutoring throughout the year to help you achieve
How do I get a tutor?
Contact Carlos Contreras or Jeanine Fino at (225)-647-3955 to schedule an orientation.
Meet with Carlos to complete orientation. During orientation you will learn more about our program and policies. We will also get to learn more about you, your goals, and assess what materials would best fit your needs.
After completing orientation, you will be contacted and paired with a tutor.
What should I expect during Orientation?
Learner Orientation provides the information you need to successfully transition into our program.
This meeting will include an interview and a description of the expectations of the literacy program.
We understand each learner is unique and has different academic needs. In order for us to properly evaluate and place you in the appropriate level of instruction, you will be asked to take an assessment during orientation. After the initial assessment, you will be matched with a tutor based on your needs
and receive instruction that is specific to you. Learners can meet with their tutors at any one of our
four library branches: Donaldsonville, Dutchtown, Galvez, or Gonzales.
