    The Literacy Intensive Tutoring program is a structured reading curriculum. Students and tutors will focus on a variety of literacy components including letters and sounds, sight words, writing, and reading comprehension. This is not a homework program, students will be assessed and must qualify for this program. Qualifying students are considered to have difficulties reading at grade level and show an academic need for extra instruction in reading and writing. Students attend tutoring two sessions a week.

  • E-TUTORING

    AVAILABLE ONLINE

    Tutors and students meet on a weekly basis in a virtual classroom to review and strengthen math concepts covered during the student's in-school instructional period. Our tutors and students worked with a curriculum, created by the student’s teacher, which includes detailed feedback and support after each session.
