    What We Do

    Our reading tutors can help your child with:

    • Assessment
    • Remediation
    • Literacy skills

     A Whole Semester for $200

    We offer a one-to-one tutoring environment that meets two nights a week for an entire semester (three nights a week during the summer). You get more than 20 sessions for $200. And we offer several discounts:

    • If your child receives a fee or reduced lunch, your cost is only $100 a semester
    • We offer a sibling discount so you can reduce your fee for two children by $25
    • If you pay the entire fee on or before the first day of tutoring you will receive an additional $25 off per child
    • Capital employees may be eligible for a discount, please contact the Education Department

    Your Child's Tutoring Sessions

    Each session is an hour long so your child receives two hours a week of one-to-one reading assistance.

    Sessions are offered:

    • February through April on Mondays and Wednesdays between 4 and 6 pm
    • June through July on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays between 4 and 6 pm
    • September through December on Mondays and Wednesday between 4 and 6 pm

    Our tutors and professors will prepare and share a summary of your child's experience and skills and will discuss this information with you, the child's parent or guardian. We will share your child's accomplishments with their school if you request us to do so.
