Who can participate?
Students in grades 1-9 who are experiencing difficulties in reading are encouraged to attend.
When is the Clubhouse held?
The Clubhouse is in session during the regular UF schedule. We meet on Tuesday and Thursday evenings for ten sessions in the fall and spring semesters, and Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings (10 sessions). Some sessions may fill quickly. Once a day is full, it will be removed from the sign up form.
What is the attendance policy?
Children are expected to be present for each session, as consistent attention is vital to meeting your child's reading needs. NOTE: If your child is participating in a sports program or had previously scheduled commitments that will require him/her to miss more than one scheduled Clubhouse session, please do not register your child for that particular session. We offer the Clubhouse every spring, summer and fall, so you can find a session that your child will be able to attend regularly.
Who are the tutors?
Tutors are all upper classmen undergraduate or graduate students who are pursuing a degree in Education from The University of Findlay. They have already taken at least two reading courses and have a solid foundation in reading process, assessment and instruction. Tutors are supervised by the
Director of the Clubhouse, Allison Baer, who is a Reading Specialist with two advanced degrees in Reading from Kent State University.
How many students can enroll?
The program will accept three children per tutor, thus the number of children served changes each semester. The number of tutors available is based on student enrollment in the courses that support the Clubhouse. Participants will be assigned on a first-come, first served basis and, once registration is full, they will be placed on a waiting list.
Is transportation provided?
No. Nearby parking is available in the north parking lot at 300 Davis Street.
Is pre-registration necessary?
Yes. Children will not be registered on the first day.
How do I register my child?
Registration is open for a few weeks prior to the start of each semester on a first-come, first-served basis and sessions tend to fill up quickly. A registration button will appear on the main page when registration is open.
