Reading Teacher with Student

Our Summer 2023 program is full and we are no longer accepting applications. Please check back mid-summer for information regarding fall and spring programming. Thank you!

The NEIU Literacy Center is operated by the Literacy Education graduate program. Current graduate students enrolled in Clinical Practicum in Literacy Education courses are the teachers (tutors) in this program. Participating graduate students are licensed teachers seeking an advanced degree to either become a Reading Specialist or earn a Reading Teacher endorsement. 

  • In this program, children and adolescents receive a comprehensive assessment of their current reading skills, and are provided individualized instruction to expand those skills.

  • The Literacy Center invites students from grades 2-12 who are reading below grade level or have documented reading difficulties to participate in the program.

  • The cost of the program is $125 for the term.

If you have questions or concerns, please email or call (773) 442-5365. Thank you!
