About

Become a mentor and guide at Tree House Books' Literacy Studio by connecting students to the world of books, texts, and words, ages 7-12. At the Literacy Studio, we focus on language acquisition, recreational reading, critical thinking and creative writing, through 12-week cycles on selected themes. Most importantly, Literacy Coaches make books fun and relevant to the most reluctant readers and encourage esteem and self-regard through writing.
