Programs and Services
One To One Tutoring:
Students at the Center for Literacy Enrichment are evaluated, and programs are designed to meet their individual needs. Instruction to improve reading and writing skills is provided in small groups or in private sessions. Tutors are available for students from elementary to high school – both U.S. and foreign-born. The program emphasizes a skills-based approach with an emphasis on literature. Parents will be delighted with the achievement of their sons and daughters in reading and writing. We take a practical approach to literacy education, as students become familiar with every day general expressions as well as the specific kinds of communication needed to carry out their day-to-day living and work.
Every July, the Center for Literacy Enrichment hosts a summer literacy camp. The program is four days per week, Monday through Thursday. Parents have the option of a half day or a full day. Students are divided into small groups based upon their grade. Children in each group work on individual and team projects, based on a central theme, which is presented by the children at the end of the four weeks.
The daily schedule is as follows:
9-10:30am - Work on skills, including decoding, fluency, comprehension, and writing, using literature
10:30am - Break- Each child brings their own snack
10:50am - Reconvene to work on project based on the central theme
12pm - Morning session ends
