Reading Individualized Tutoring Services (RITS)



The Reading Individualized Tutoring Services (RITS) program offers students in grades K-12 an individualized tutoring program to strengthen each child’s reading. Tutoring is provided by an experienced, certified reading specialist with a Master’s or Doctoral Degree in Reading. All tutoring sessions are held in the Jerry L. John's Literacy Clinic in DeKalb.

Sessions will be scheduled to match the availability of the student and the reading specialist. 

The cost of a ten-week program is $450 and covers one session of diagnostic assessment, nine tutoring sessions delivered by the same reading specialist, progress reports for parents/guardians after the fifth and tenth sessions, instructional supplies, and a healthy snack and drink at each session.
