MARTIN, Tenn. – Every student has different reading abilities, and some need a little extra assistance that may not be provided during a normal school day. The University of Tennessee at Martin Reading Center offers personalized reading clinic sessions for students in grades 2-12 who have difficulty reading or are falling behind grade level reading standards.

Students may enroll in one of three sessions this fall: Sept. 4-28, Oct. 2-Nov. 7 or Nov. 8-Dec. 7. Depending on personal needs, students can meet with a reading assistant either twice per week for $100 or four times per week for $200. Each meeting lasts one hour. Twice-weekly meetings will be held on either a Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday schedule. Each student must also purchase a $25 workbook for use during meetings.

Students are individually tested to determine specific needs in phonics and reading comprehension before being placed into a course of study designed to fill gaps in their skills and strategies. All lessons are taught by experienced reading professionals from the UT Martin Reading Center.

Contact the UT Martin Office of Educational Outreach at 731-881-7082 to schedule a testing appointment.
