Freshmen Education majors are required to pass the Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure (MTEL) Communication and Literacy Skills Test (CLST) Reading and Writing sub-tests prior to completing two semesters.
The Tutor Center offers a six-session, twelve-hour, preparation seminar facilitated by professional instructors to assist students to prepare for this test. Students can also request individual peer tutors, who have passed the test, to provide further assistance to prepare for the CLST Writing sub-test. Individualized professional academic coaching is also available to assist students with preparing for the CLST Reading and Writing sub-tests.
Students can enroll in this Seminar, offered fall and spring semesters, by registering for the MTEL Preparation Seminar through web4.fitchburgstate.edu.
