How Can the Literacy Center Help?


We encourage you to inform us of what is going on in your class, and what our tutors can focus on to help. This could be a specific assignment/project, or it can be general skills and concepts to focus on.  


If you have specific documents, assignments, study aids that may help please send them down to the Literacy Center or e-mail them to Ms. Tamar Boghossian:


For Parents:

The goal and purpose of the Literacy Center is to help students reach their full academic potential, through peer tutoring and mentoring.  We can help with most, if not all, subjects, or with general study and organization skills.  To get a better understanding of what we offer the Niles West Community please read our vision.
