Literacy tutoring for grades 2-12 returns: Apply now!

The Literacy Center at SUNY New Paltz is now accepting applications for the spring 2023 Literacy Tutoring Program, which is open to any students in grades 2-12 who need additional literacy support.

The Literacy Tutoring Program connects children with candidates in New Paltz’s Master’s in Literacy Education degree program, for targeted instructional support.

All services will be provided in a fully online learning environment for the spring semester, in a mix of synchronous and asynchronous formats, with small groups of children working with at least two tutors.

Tutors are trained to provide individualized reading and writing lessons to students of various ages, with supervision and guidance from professors in the School of Education.

Tutoring sessions will be offered at 5:30 p.m. on Mondays and Tuesdays during the spring semester, beginning Feb. 6 or 7. Children accepted to the Literacy Tutoring Program are expected to attend all tutoring sessions.

Tuition for the full-semester program is $75, payable upon acceptance into the program. Spaces are limited, so please apply now by visiting Notifications of acceptance will be sent by Jan. 25.
