Donald D. Durrell Reading & Writing Clinic (RWC)

The Donald D. Durrell Reading & Writing Clinic (RWC) at Boston University serves students in grades 1-12 who experience difficulty with reading and writing in school.

RWC tutors are experienced educators who hold or are working toward graduate degrees in literacy. As they learn about their students as readers and writers, RWC tutors develop an individualized tutoring plan and implement instruction based on six key domains of literacy:

  • Decoding/word study
  • Fluency
  • Vocabulary
  • Comprehension
  • Writing
  • Motivation/engagement

The RWC typically offers one-on-one tutoring sessions that meet for two hours on Saturday mornings during the academic year. For more information about the Donald D. Durrell Reading & Writing Clinic, visit the clinic’s website.
