Tufts Literacy Corps - Literacy & the Arts summer program

Tufts Literacy Corps 105 College Avenue
Medford, MA 02155




All T.L.C. tutoring sessions look a little different because they are tailored to the academic needs and learning style of each child. There are some common elements, however.Your child will have the undivided attention of a tutor who is committed to working with him or her throughout the academic year (roughly from October through April). They will begin their sessions with a few minutes to say, "hello" before launching into the hour's work. Once started, the session will move at a pace that works well for your child, and will consist of several activities. The TLC reading program is based on the work of Maryanne Wolf and her colleagues at Tufts’ Center for Reading and Language Research. Reading tutors learn to use the Center’s cutting- edge instructional methods to teach print recognition, “foster fluency” and build comprehension. They use wonderful children’s books to instill the thrill of reading and its capacity to transport us to faraway places.
