Abstract

This thesis identifies characteristics and common practices at private tutoring centers that offer remedial reading instruction. Directors at four centers were interviewed and responses were analyzed to identify the general process by which a student receives reading tutoring. Results are presented in the areas of reading programs, enrollment process, cost, qualifications of tutors, student growth, parent support, and positive characteristics of centers.
