UMKC Reading Studio

Overview

The Reading Studio is designed to assist all students in the area of reading. This appointment-based service will assist a variety of students across a large spectrum of abilities. Some students need to improve the most basic reading skills including setting a purpose for reading, vocabulary development, accuracy, and fluency; some wish to glean greater comprehension from what they read; and some desire to boost their reading speed and effectiveness with reading a wide variety of genres—especially in light of the vast amount of reading that college courses require.

The Reading Studio conducts one-on-one appointments beginning in September. Contact us at the information below for an appointment. You can also visit one of our Reading Workshops, which are listed below.
