Distance Tutoring Program
Experience the Reading Clinic from anywhere
The NSU Reading Clinic distance tutoring program is available to students in grades 1-8 who live virtually anywhere outside Aberdeen, S.D. Our goal remains consistent: Provide affordable, high-quality tutoring that accelerates a child’s literacy skills.
 
Distance=Success
Students in at least 10 different states have utilized our distance service and experienced a rate of success very similar to that achieved with face-to-face tutoring.
 
Each student is paired with an NSU education major for 14 45-minute sessions conducted under the expert  supervision of clinic Director Dr. Timothy Houge. Tutoring takes place via webcam and includes the same research-based components as face-to-face tutoring.
 
Requirements
A computer with a high-speed internet connection must be provided by either the parent or the school, depending upon where tutoring takes place.

The cost for distance tutoring is $60.
