A Literacy Opportunity, Tutoring & Intervention Program




The Literacy Opportunity Program provides affordable one-on-one instruction that targets a child’s challenges in reading (intervention) or enhances a child’s strength in reading (tutoring) through targeted or global instruction for a well-rounded learning experience.  Lessons are held in the Martha Gesling Weber Reading Center on the fifth floor of the Education Building on BGSU's campus.

A reading pre-assessment is administered on the first day. The results of the assessments as well as parent feedback are used to guide instruction. Each week, lessons are developed that encompass all or specific literacy cornerstones which include: Oral Language, Fluency, Vocabulary Development, Comprehension Development, Written Language, Attitude and Motivation.

Offered during the Fall, Spring, and Summer Semesters

Instructors are licensed teachers with an Ohio PreK-12 reading endorsement who are pursuing a Master of Education in Reading. During the summer semester the instructors are licensed teachers with an Ohio PreK-12 reading endorsement and Master of Education in Reading.
