Reading Tutoring

The focus of all tutoring at the May Literacy Center is a student’s reading and writing abilities. To strengthen reading we often do writing activities to support and extend the reading.

  • When are tutoring services available?
    Tutoring occurs in the Fall semester (September through December), Spring semester (February through May) and during summer session II (July).
  • Who provides the tutoring?
    The tutoring is provided by Salisbury University undergraduate students enrolled in the elementary and early childhood teacher education programs, and/or graduate students enrolled in the master’s degree program leading to Reading Specialist Certification. 
  • What are the types of instruction that are used during tutoring?                                      
    The types of instruction that we provide focus on phonics, fluency, word study, comprehension, vocabulary, and writing in response to text. Children will read fiction and non-fiction texts.                                                           
  • Does my child really need to attend tutoring every session?
    If you choose to enroll your child in tutoring, it is very important that you make sure your child attends every session except in the case of an illness. For your child to truly benefit from the tutoring weekly attendance is necessary, so the tutor can help your child develop his/her reading and writing abilities. Additionally, our undergraduate and graduate students are depending on the attendance of your child in order to complete their coursework.
