The adult literacy instructor is the one who teaches adults reading and writing skills. He is responsible for training the out-of-school adults in remedial education classes. The teaching may or may not be in a traditional educational institute. The adult literacy instructor adapts various teaching methods to meet students' teaching needs, abilities, and interests. He observes and evaluates students' learning capabilities and makes corresponding changes to enhance their progress.
Literacy is essential to personal, educational and professional success. Indeed, a lack of basic reading and writing skills deprives millions of adults of basic opportunities and essential services every day. If you want to help disadvantaged people overcome illiteracy, you should consider becoming an adult literacy teacher.
Adult literacy and high school equivalency diploma teachers instruct adults in basic skills, such as reading, writing, and speaking English. They also help students earn their high school equivalent diploma. Before students enter these education programs, their educational level and skills are assessed. These assessments are typically performed by another staff member; however, in some programs the teacher may conduct the assessments.
