Literacy Support Program

In the Literacy Support Program, each learner works one-on-one with a literacy tutor, who is typically a senior undergraduate or graduate student specializing in education. Tutors are current or past students of a course in reading and literacy development where they learn about the reading process and effective reading assessment and targeted instruction. Programming is based on formal diagnostic assessments. Tutors use a variety of research-based teaching approaches to help their clients improve their reading and writing skills.

Math Support Program

The Math Support Program includes personalized, one-on-one numeracy instruction for children and adolescents. Numeracy learners work with a tutor who is a senior undergraduate or graduate student with expertise in math education. Programming is based on curriculum-based assessments. Tutors emphasize the conceptual understandings of numeracy and problem-based applications of these skills.
