Registration open for SVSU Literacy Center summer clinics

The Literacy Center at Saginaw Valley State University will offer tutoring in reading to students ranging from kindergarten upward through 12th grade, and adult learners during the upcoming summer.

Participating students attend 50-minute small group or one-on-one tutoring sessions Mondays to Thursdays from Monday, June 19 to Thursday, July 13, and can choose between sessions starting at 8 a.m., 9 a.m., 10 a.m., and 11 a.m. No sessions will be conducted the week of July 3. The Literacy Center is located in SVSU's Gilbertson Hall.
                
All students undergo a 1-hour assessment to determine their strengths and improvable areas in math, reading, or writing prior to tutoring. Assessments take place June 13 and 14, at 4 p.m., 5 p.m., and 6 p.m. A $50 non-refundable deposit is due at the time of, or before, the assessment.

Tutors then create individualized lesson plans based on the students' assessments and a research-based tutoring system to help students maximize their potential. All of the Literacy Center's tutors are certified teachers who hold master's degrees in literacy and/or certification in reading recovery, or a bachelor's or master's degree in a related field. The Literacy Center also offers resources and provides collaboration opportunities to parents and guardians who wish to be involved in the learning process.

Tuition for attending the Literacy Center is $270 per session. For more information, visit svsu.edu/literacycenter or contact Laurie Haney at 989-964-4982.
