Are Reading Difficulties Holding You Back?

We're here to help. The Reading Clinic offers free one-hour tutoring sessions to teach techniques in improving reading comprehension and vocabulary. The clinic is staffed by a faculty member and trained student tutors. Students learn to effectively:

  • Identify main ideas
  • Make inferences
  • Draw conclusions
  • Understand concepts
  • Retain facts
  • Improve and implement test-taking skills

Emphasis is placed on transferring these skills to college text reading. In addition, the Reading Clinic assists students in Praxis reading test preparation and obtaining reading rates. Students can work privately or schedule an independent lab session with staff direction.
