Parents of incoming 2nd-5th grade students please read below for information on FREE online tutoring from NIU this summer: Northern Illinois University’s Jerry L. Johns Literacy Clinic is offering free online tutoring in reading this summer for students entering second through fifth grades. Tutoring sessions begin in late May, opening with an evaluation of each child’s reading ability, and continue through late July with instruction tailored to each child’s specific needs. Individualized instruction is delivered in 30-minute sessions by NIU students completing their bachelor’s or master’s degrees in education. Children should have access to tablets or computers (not cellphones) in a quiet area of their homes. Faculty from the department of NIU College of Education’s Department of Curriculum and Instruction supervise the tutors, who are known as “reading stewards” at the clinic with a 60-year legacy of helping children to improve their literacy. Space is limited; email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible to reserve a spot for your child or for more information. Visit the clinic website at www.cedu.niu.edu/literacy-clinic/.
