New Staff at TLP

Hello to all! As winter ends and the days get a little longer, we’d like to introduce you to our newest staff member, Ginny Schumacher.

Ginny Schumacher is the new Adult Literacy Instructor for Tompkins Learning Partners.

In this position, Ginny supports both Helen in ESL and Shannon in ABE. She will provide mentoring for new tutors and help with instruction to new students while they are waiting for an appropriate tutor match. She will also help with providing materials to students to help identify reading difficulties so appropriate instruction ideas can then be provided to the tutor.

Ginny is a retired teacher, and has also worked as a museum educator. She has tutored at TLP for over five years and also worked part time in Recruitment and Outreach.

Ginny and husband, Dale, live in Ithaca and have four grown children and five grandchildren.
