February 7, 2014 — Marion, Ohio — To get a good job today, adults need strong academic and workforce skills. Ohio ABLE programs provide FREE classes for adults who want to improve math, writing and reading skills in order to find a job, prepare for college or study for the G.E.D. Tests.
ABLE classes meet in Marion, Wyandot, and Morrow counties and are provided by Marion Technical College ABLE. Adults 18 and older may enroll at any scheduled orientation session. Classes in Wyandot County are held at 120 East Johnson St. in Upper Sandusky. Morning and evening classes are available.
ABLE services begin with orientation. During, orientation, each student is given a short math, reading and writing assessment. A staff person explains the assessment results to each person, and they discuss a study plan together. Most adults begin by reviewing fractions, decimals, and percentages in math. Initial language lessons focus on writing clear sentences and paragraphs. As students master basic skills, they are given more advanced material. Skills are taught in a group setting and on computers. Students receive review work to complete at home. In some cases, students may be eligible for free online instruction.
ABLE classes are relaxed and friendly. Staff members want each student to succeed and meet his or her goals. To learn more about free ABLE classes meeting in the Wyandot county area, please call Marion Technical College ABLE at 740.389.4636 ext. 223 or visit www.mtc.edu/ABLE.
