How can the Reading Center help you?                                                                                                          


Work with a highly-trained reading consultant one on one for 50 minutes. Bring in an assignment or simply come to practice reading skills.  If you wish to work one on one with a reading consultant, you may make an appointment by visiting us at our Zoom site.  You do not need a appointment for workshops or clubs.  

For each session you should bring:    
  • Your student ID                                                              
  • Your assignment instructions                                                              
  • Any important comments or handouts from your teacher                                                              
  • An idea of what you want to work on   
Don't have an appointment?  Drop into our Zoom site anyway!  Someone may be available to help you.

​Like joining a book club, but so much better! Stop in whenever you have a little bit of extra time and read short pieces with a small group. Discuss and analyze the piece, learn new vocabulary, and meet new people.
