Community Literacy Center Lit Support: In-Person

UNH Community Literacy Center: Literacy Support In-Person

Work on your goals for reading and writing with a CLC tutor!

Students meet individually with a tutor for 45 minute sessions. During the first meetings, students complete assessments and establish a literacy goal. Each meeting, students take part in research-based, developmentally appropriate practices that help them achieve their goals. Tutors use students' assessments, interests, and goals to guide literacy instruction. Activities might include: word chains, word ladders, phonics instruction, reader's theater, riddles, jokes, assisted reading, and writing activities.

After registration is complete, the CLC will contact the parent/guardian to learn about the child as a reader/writer and set up a tutoring schedule (# of sessions per week and time). New students may register at any point in a semester, but all slots are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. Register early for the greatest time/day selection.

Participants purchase 6- or 12-session punch cards. To retain a tutoring spot, a new punch card must be purchased prior to completion of the prior punch card. If a child is regularly attending tutoring, punch cards do not expire between semesters. If a child is not regularly attending tutoring (i.e. missed 3 or more consecutive meetings), the punch card expires at the end of the semester. All CLC attendance policies apply to punch card use.
