Free tutoring and job skill training sessions will soon be available to all West Alabama residents through the University of Alabama’s Culverhouse College of Business.

Culverhouse Learning Initiative and Financial Training will begin classes for the spring term later this month.

LIFT uses student volunteers from the business college to work with community participants in a classroom setting.

“It’s a one-on-one tutoring relationship between the student and the participant,” said Lisa McKinney, accounting lecturer, LIFT coordinator and certified public accountant.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, these classes will be offered in-person and virtually.

“Offering these classes both in a classroom setting or virtually opens up the opportunity for people to learn anywhere,” said McKinney.
