Boston University School of Education

The Donald D. Durrell Summer Reading and Writing Clinic at the Boston University School of Education serves students in grades 1 through 12 who experience difficulty with reading and writing. Students who attend the Clinic are evaluated in six key domains of literacy (motivation and interest, word study, vocabulary, fluency, comprehension, and writing) using a collection of research-validated informal and formal assessments.

Based on assessment results, we design an individualized tutoring plan that builds on students’ identified strengths while addressing their needs. All instruction is provided by teachers who are experts in literacy. Tutoring is offered in two, three-week terms that meet from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings. Students may register for one or both terms. The cost is $2800 per term, or $5500 for two terms.
