The Centre for Literacy & Learning is a tutoring service for students in Grade 1 through 8 who are struggling with basic reading and writing development. Many of our students have been diagnosed with a Learning Disability, while others are early primary-level students who are not naturally acquiring early literacy skills and are seen as being ‘at risk’.
Our goal is to provide our students with research-based remedial intervention that focuses on improving their basic skill levels in:
We do not offer support in math, nor do we provide homework help.
Our students typically love to listen to stories and they come from homes in which reading is valued. They are well-intentioned, motivated, and often very bright; however, they experience significant difficulty transforming printed symbols (letters) into a phonetic code. We know that these children CAN learn to read - but they must be taught using research-based programs that incorporate direct, explicit instruction, a step-by-step approach, and sufficient repetition and cumulative review.
We pride ourselves in providing a unique service within the Oakville-Burlington community. Rather than offering a wide-range of tutoring services (math, science, homework support, SAT preparation, etc.), we have specialized in the area of literacy development. We believe that reading is the key to school success!!
We have been providing assessments and tutoring in the Burlington, Oakville, Milton area for over 20 years.
