Learn More Center
“It’s all about learning”


The Learn More Center has always worked closely with Manchester University, especially through Indiana Reading Corps and other similar tutoring programs.


The Learn More Center (LMC) is an institute dedicated to adult education. With astounding truths and statistics such as that 12% of functional adults read below a fourth grade reading level, and over 30% of adults in Indiana are dysfunctionally illiterate, the center hopes to help change these for the better. They respond to the needs of adult students, which include but are not limited to; contacts with colleges, tutoring, child care as to allow time for learnign and applicatiions, emotional support, campus visits, enrichment trips, administering the college placement exam for Ivy tech, as well as just being there for the student as they continue their journey.


The Learn More Center also receives requests for tutoring of children, which they pass on to Manchester University for possible tutors.

  • Assist students with writing skills. Develope ability to write complete sentences, well-developed paragraphs and an organized and logical essay.
