Promoting more humanizing approaches to literacy…



UTSA Reading Place: Plaza de Lectura offers assistance in reading and writing to San Antonio area children. In addition, UTSA Reading Place provides training for university students through teaching experiences and conducts research on problems in literacy learning. UTSA Reading Place is located at the downtown campus of UTSA on the third floor of the Buena Vista Building (BV 3.350). UTSA faculty from the College of Education and Human Development supervise tutors at the center. The UTSA Reading Place contains books and instructional material for use during the tutoring sessions.

Upper level undergraduate students pursuing teacher certification and graduate students working toward reading specialist certification provide assessment in reading and writing to students from grades PreK through sixth grade. Following assessment, individual instruction is provided to address areas of need. Parents are provided information regarding assessment results and tutorial goals. Students are tutored one-on-one for one evening a week for approximately one hour.  At the close of the semester, parents are given information about their child’s progress.

General Information About the Program
Our tutoring sessions vary each semester and children are admitted based on need and appropriate fit within each particular tutoring session. Children, or Roadrunner Readers as we prefer to call them, meet *one evening per week (as designated by the particular tutoring session) with their tutor and receive one-on-one tutoring. Tutoring sessions last approximately 1 hours.

How much does it cost?
The cost for tutoring is $50 per semester per child (scholarships are available). The fee is a one-time charge and pays for approximately *10 weeks of tutoring. Included in this fee is a parking permit which allows you to park free of charge in UTSA designated spaces during the duration of the tutoring semester. Your parking permit allows you to park in either Cattleman’s Square Parking Lot , under IH-35, or in the Durango Loop Parking Lot. Please do not park in any spaces reserved for faculty. City parking may also be utilized and paid for by using the parking meters. Please see map for more details.
