MACOMB, IL -- Are you concerned with your son's or daughter's reading skills? Would you like your child to be more successful in school?

Western Illinois University's Graduate Reading Program will offer free diagnostic and tutoring services during Spring 2013 for students in grades kindergarten through fifth. According to WIU Curriculum and Instruction Associate Professor Melissa Stinnett, the learning experience will focus on improving participants' reading and writing abilities.

The tutoring program will begin Tuesday, Jan. 29, and will be held from 5:30-6:45 p.m. every Tuesday in Horrabin Hall (the north side of the building) on the WIU-Macomb campus. A second section will also be held on Thursday evenings, beginning Jan. 31. Graduate students in the reading program are certified teachers and are currently working toward their master's degrees to become K-12 reading specialists.

Registration is required. To register for a Tuesday or Thursday section, or for more information, contact Stinnett at or leave a message at (309) 298-2033.
