Reading Teacher with Student

The NEIU Literacy Center is operated by the Literacy Education graduate program. Current graduate students enrolled in their Literacy Education Practicum courses are the teachers (tutors) in this program. All assessment and instructional sessions are supervised by a Literacy Education faculty member.

  • In this program, children and adolescents receive a comprehensive assessment of their current reading skills, and are provided with individualized instruction to expand those skills.
  • The Literacy Center serves students from grades 2-12 who are reading below grade level or experiencing reading difficulties.
  • The cost of the program is $150 for the term.

We are no longer accepting applications for our Summer 2024 Tutoring Program. The program is full. 

Please check back July 1 to learn about our fall programming!
