We offer two reading tutoring programs throughout the academic year. One program meets on Wednesday afternoons face-to-face (f2f), and one meets on Tuesday afternoons and is virtual. Both tutoring programs are taught by University of Nevada, Reno undergraduates and supervised by University faculty.

Clinic Tutoring

The Clinic Tutoring Program is designed for students needing extra reading and writing support and is held throughout the fall and spring semesters. Students can select one of two programs. They can sign up to meet for tutoring at the Center or for the completely online program. The tutorial program is an important part of an advanced literacy instruction class for undergraduate students seeking degrees in education. During the program, the children come to the Center or meet their tutors online for an hour one day a week. 

Literacy instruction is focused on meeting the needs of students by utilizing various instructional methods, assessments, and technology to enrich the development of each student. Our University faculty and staff are dedicated to advancing literacy for all students.   

Please visit our website for more registration information regarding our tutoring program. Tutoring slots are limited and fill up quickly, so please be sure to register. Registration is not a guarantee of a tutoring slot. You will receive a notification and an application if your child has a tutoring slot.

RSP Multimodal Literacy & Robotics Program

The Wolf Pack Bots robotics program serves second through eighth grade elementary students from the surrounding Washoe County School District. Designed for struggling readers, the robotics program instructs students that are English language learners. About 95 percent of the K-8 students in the program come from backgrounds where languages other than English are spoken at home. This program reinforces the language acquisition and communication skills students need to succeed not just academically but socially.
