Summer Reading Clinic

Improve Your Child's Chances for Success

Our intensive, 5-week program gives struggling readers the personal attention they need to improve their literacy skills and gain confidence.

How it Works

Your child's tutor will:

  • Assess your child's reading performance to determine strengths and weaknesses using appropriate reading assessments.
  • Design an individualized remediation plan based on the assessment results
  • Use evidence-based teaching strategies which include daily reading and activities to improve the way reading occurs
  • Provide a summary report to parents based on pre- and post-assessment results, which parents may share with their child's school.

All tutors are graduates of the Master in Education in Reading Program or are currently licensed reading specialists and will be supervised by Lynchburg College professors who will actively be involved in the clinic.

Who Can Participate

Any K-12 student struggling with reading who is:

  • Recommended by a classroom teacher
  • Experiencing significant reading difficulties

Cost

Only $300 for 5 weeks - less than most private tutoring of comparable quality.

No additional applications are being accepted as the 2014 clinic is now full.

Application

We are committed to enrolling students of diverse backgrounds.

Application information will be posted in January.
