Reading Room 

Do you struggle with reading English? Do you have difficulty understanding what you are reading? We are here to help!

The Reading Room at TIES is a place where you can go to improve your reading and comprehension skills in English. We offer one-on-one support either online or in-person for 8 weeks. We have instructors and additional volunteers ready to support you while you develop your reading skills, from learning to understand the sounds each letter makes to what the meaning behind the words are.

Our goal is to support you, so you feel confident reading and understanding what you have read.

Here is what a past student had to say after they completed the program:

“Teacher, I can and understand now. I am slow, but I understand better. Thanks to the Reading Room I am happy.”
