LCMC Library Resources
The library is available to tutors at any time during the LCMC’s regular office hours. Tutors should check in with a coordinator or the librarian before signing out material.
The LCMC Library provides tutors with materials for adults who are learning to read, write or speak English, and connect with their community. Topics include workplace and life skills, grammar, writing, spelling, and citizenship. In addition, stories and non-fiction works at our learners’ levels are available for their learning enjoyment. A large collection of resource materials and educational resources support tutors in various subject areas such as teaching comprehension and pronunciation, cultural awareness, learning disabilities, and general literacy.

Communicating With Your Child’s School
We have a program for you to use to help adult English language learners who have children in Montgomery County Public Schools. Increased parent involvement will help children succeed in school, but many LCMC students come to us from cultures that discourage open communication with their childrens’ teachers. Lack of English language proficiency further dissuades them from becoming active participants in their children’s education.
Available in hard copy at the LCMC library and below in .pdf format is a teaching tool for adult learners developed by Marilyn Block, longtime tutor, trainer, and LCMC board member. There are three 90-minute instructional sessions on school-related vocabulary, written and verbal communication methods and meetings with school staff.
You can download at your convenience. These pieces were created by tutors to reinforce vocabulary and sentence structure, and for interest.
