Programs

Individual and Small Group Tutoring in English and Math - Offered After School and on Saturdays

Students at the Center for Literacy Enrichment are evaluated, and programs are designed to meet their individual needs. Instruction to improve reading and writing skills, and now math skills, is provided in small groups or in private sessions. Tutors are available for students from elementary to high school - both U.S. and foreign-born. The program emphasizes a skills-based approach with an emphasis on literature or math. Parents will be delighted with the achievement of their sons and daughters in reading, writing and mathematical skills and understanding. We take a practical approach to literacy and math education, as students become familiar with every day general expressions as well as the specific kinds of communication needed to carry out their day-to-day living and work.


The Canning Program for 4- and 5-Year-Olds

The Canning Program is offered to students ages 4 and 5, and is dedicated to preparing your child to enter into Kindergarten. We believe that literacy is the foundation a child needs in order to be successful in all aspects of school. A balance between play, music, and academics, the program offers a curriculum that both challenges and excites students.

 

Summer Program for Students Ages 5 - 12th Grade

Every July, the Center for Literacy Enrichment hosts a summer literacy camp. The program is four days per week, Monday through Thursday. Parents have the option of a half day or a full day. Students are divided into small groups based upon their grade. Children in each group work on individual and team projects, based on a central theme, which is presented by the children at the end of the four weeks.

The daily schedule is as follows:
9-10:30am - Work on skills, including decoding, fluency, comprehension, and writing, using literature
10:30am - Break- Each child brings their own snack
10:50am - Reconvene to work on project based on the central theme
12pm - Morning session ends

MEET THE DIRECTOR
For more than 40 years as the director of the Center for Literacy Enrichment at Pace University, it has been my goal to encourage children to enjoy literature and become more competent readers and writers. At the center, we believe that reading and writing go hand in hand. Literacy is the foundation for every discipline. Therefore, we help children improve these skills through multiple methods. We offer a variety of programs to meet these needs, including tutoring, summer literacy camp, workshops, and a February break program.
