Long Island students who need reading and writing help, but whose families can’t afford tutoring, now have a new, no-cost opportunity.

SUNY Old Westbury’s School of Education is piloting a free Literacy Learning Clinic starting Jan. 31 for students in kindergarten through 12th grade. 

Graduate students in the public college's two-year Master of Science in Literacy Education program, which launched in fall 2017, will provide strategy instruction sessions once a week for 45 minutes on Old Westbury's campus through May 16.
