About the ESU Evaluation and Instructional Center

Since 1993 the Center has continued to grow and now includes students ranging in age from 5 years to 18 years of age. It is estimated that we have tutored over 2,000 students in reading, math, writing, spelling, science, and social studies.

Undergraduate students that are enrolled in the required course Sped 215 Instructional Planning in Special Education learn the skills and competencies needed to plan and implement weekly tutoring sessions. Students have access to a variety of educational materials, fiction and non-fiction books and technology, such as laptops and iPads to use in their weekly lessons and activities. Tutoring sessions are one hour long and take place on one afternoon/evening a week (the Center is open multiple days).

Parents value this important community service, spreading the word to their friends and neighbors. We continue to offer tutoring at no charge (except for a nominal registration fee which keeps the cabinet full of healthy snacks and juice) and always have a waiting list each semester. We look forward to continuing this community service.
