Adult literacy at Centro Tyrone Guzman supports people who want to continue their education.

Individualized Spanish language tutorials are provided to ease knowledge acquisition. Through a partnership with the Mexican Consulate, the Institute of Mexicans in the Exterior and CONEVyT, adult learners earn their primary and secondary school diplomas in the Spanish language.

Centro Tyrone Guzman has the only Plaza Comunitaria in Minneapolis. Adults can study with tutors or at home with text-based and computer-based tutorials.

“We don’t have a lot of time to study, as we have many daily obligations, but with a flexible schedules and very patient teachers we can achieve our goals. Thanks to this program I am better prepared to help my children with homework. I also know I can have a better professional future.”
