Read what some of our educators and parents say about our program:

“As an educator in a designated high poverty school in the SDSUD which services a ninety-eight percent African American student population, the SDSU Reading Clinic has had a critical impact in meeting the literacy needs of our struggling readers and writers from K-6th grade. Over the past five years many of our low-income families have been positively affected by our affiliation with the SDSU Reading Clinic.”

– Christine Kane, Teacher, Literacy Coach, Staff Developer, Nubia Leadership Academy


“Sarah became more confident in her reading abilities as a result of the Community Reading Clinic program. Mr. Z was a great tutor and we appreciated his hard work very much.”
