Job Duties and Skills for Adult Educators

Adult educators teach basic skills such as reading, writing and speaking English to adults who failed to get that education in their youth or for whom English is a second language. They work with students to determine their areas of strength and weakness, and then help them improve study skills and work toward accomplishing academic goals.

Skills for adult educators can include good communication and instructional skills, as well as the ability to understand and appreciate cultural differences. As with most teaching positions, another very important skill is patience.
