Spring 2024 Tutoring

 CLaRI offers our on-site and virtual “One-to-one Reading and Writing Sessions” program on Saturday mornings from mid September to mid December and January through early May.

This program provides individualized tutoring to children entering Kindergarten through grade 12. Certified literacy specialists provide weekly, hour-long literacy sessions on Saturday mornings that use authentic literature and research-based practices to tailor instruction to meet each child’s unique literacy and learning needs. We do not use pre-packaged, publisher-produced or scripted reading/writing programs. We provide individualized instruction in one or all of the following areas: comprehension, fluency, spelling and writing. While we cannot work on school-assigned homework during tutoring sessions, we can focus literacy instruction on targeted areas indicated by the child's school.


Our teachers are all certified New York State teachers and literacy specialists. These individuals have tutored for us before as part of our master’s program and have demonstrated excellent teaching abilities.

Parent Debriefing

The last five minutes of every tutoring session are reserved for clinicians to speak to parents about the instruction provided during that lesson and their child’s literacy progress. After each tutoring session, parents will receive a brief summary sheet that states: what instruction occurred, what the child excelled in, what the child still needs to work on.
