Tutoring

The Reading Group is a not-for-profit learning center where we offer one-on-one instruction for students of all ages. While we specialize in reading and dyslexia, we also offer help in mathematics, speech/language development, study skills, gifted enrichment, ACT/SAT prep, and ESL. All of our teachers are certified and experienced. We do not use a “one size fits all” approach to instruction, but an individualized program based upon the student’s needs and abilities. Established in 1972, The Reading Group is the longest running non-profit learning center in the area.

• Reading (specializing in Dyslexia)

Class Schedules

Our standard program is 10 weeks of lessons, one hour per week.
We strive to accommodate our students’ busy calendars with flexible class schedules. During the school year, our students are seen in the afternoon (after school), and in the early evening hours each weekday. We also have Saturday morning sessions. In the summer months, we have morning, afternoon, and evening sessions during the week, and Saturday mornings.

The Reading Group can help your student learn to read so they can read to learn!
