Reading, writing for kids

Reading and writing are the focus of the new Language and Literacy Institute in George Town, which recently kicked off clinics for students needing a bit of help.

Tanya Samuels, the director and lead teacher, refers to working with small groups as a boutique tutoring centre concept – which defines the Language and Literacy Institute.

“The group is very specialised and targets a unique clientele: adolescent boys who are good readers but need help with improving their writing ability,” Ms Samuels said.

Ms Samuels started with two other groups recently, both for reading support.

She has three groups in the reading clinic, an adult literacy group and an English as a Second Language group. She will be offering a one-week session for students who are out of school during the Easter holiday.

“It’s called Living Literacy and it offers an educational and fun alternative to traditional holiday camps,” Ms Samuels said. “We will focus on active literacy engagement by connecting literacy to our field trips, activities and daily experiences in a fun and exciting way.”
