The Literacy Corner helps students overcome reading challenges and improve their overall communication skills. Developed for students between the ages of six and 14, our trained instructors will customize our program to meet your child's needs. Our primary goal is to help your child improve their reading and writing skills so that they have the tools to be more successful in a variety of academic subjects.

Our educators will assess your child's reading skills in their first meeting and then design a daily program to fit their needs. Each tutoring session lasts one hour, with four sessions held each week. We'll closely monitor your child's progress during the program and work with you to ensure your child is improving. We will also assign reading and writing activities to take home each day.
