The Literacy Center began in 2016 with only a handful of supplies and a few volunteer tutors. Thanks to significant investments from Ida Evans, Amanda Vermillion, and Darrell and Grace Wessels, the Literacy Center has expanded to include both in-person and virtual literacy tutoring.
We serve Pre-K through adult students who are in need of literacy tutoring. The center also serves Northwestern teacher candidates by preparing them for virtual instruction and how to instruct a child who is developing literacy skills.
Our center provides one-on-one tutoring once a week. Lessons are tailored to use student’s individual strengths and interests to develop needed skills. Dr. Jen Oswald works closely with tutors to provide feedback and assistance when needed.
Contact Dr. Oswald if you have a child in need of services, or if you are a student at Northwestern who would like to become a tutor.
