Long Island Tutoring and Enrichment
Our Reading, Writing, and Literacy enrichment tutors are New York State certified teachers who are Reading Specialists trained and certified in both Wilson and Fundations. Our teachers are also licensed in TESOL with an extension in ENL. LITE's experienced teachers are passionate educators who modify the program to each individual learner's needs.
LITE's enrichment program helps transform young learners by giving them the tools to read and write, which not only helps them to become better students but also empowers them to question, explore, and understand the world around them.
Our Reading Specialists are trained and certified in both Wilson Reading System (WRS) and Fundations. LITE's practices are consistent with the findings of the National Reading Panel, including phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, guided oral reading, vocabulary, decoding, and reading comprehension. Whether a student needs intense remediation or a bridge to prevent learning loss, LITE's enrichment program helps young learners become skilled, avid readers and writers.
The ultimate goal of literacy instruction is to build a student's comprehension skills, writing skills, and communication skills. These literacy skills are necessary for all subjects, not just ELA. Our tutors help students develop the sensory-cognitive processes that underlie reading and comprehension. Students develop processing skills like sight word recognition, contextual fluency, oral vocabulary, phonemic awareness, symbol and concept imagery, and comprehension.
LITE offers specialized enrichment tutoring for our young learners whose first language is not English. Our tutors are licensed in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) with an extension in ENL (English as a New Language). Through one-on-one tutoring catered to the needs of each student, ENL tutors help students in their development of social and academic proficiency in English.
