Since its founding in 1999, the Reading Place: Plaza de Lectura has helped more than 1,500 children in the San Antonio area children by providing assistance in reading and writing. Each semester approximately 100 students are able to participate in the programs of the Plaza. The Plaza offers a variety of programs including those designed to help children needing extra support in reading and writing and young children who would benefit from enrichment literacy activities.

Tutoring services for the semester cost $50.00 per child. This fee also covers the cost of parking for the parent. For further information about the Plaza, you can call 210-458-2649 or email us at Marcy.Wilburn@utsa.edu. We hope to have the opportunity to serve you in the future.
