The Reading Center offers tutoring for any course and advisement for students enrolled in RDG (reading) courses.

Location: Islip Arts Building, Room 116

The Reading Center assists RDG 098 and RDG 099 students with their reading comprehension and vocabulary development. We provide individual and small group tutoring in addition to required 50-minute lab classes. Students enrolled in RDG classes may also make appointments for advisement with either the lab coordinator or one of our full time Reading professors. We immerse our students in a print-rich environment with the goal of helping them to not only become more efficient and effective readers but to also develop a lifelong love of reading and learning.
