Description: This class offers students an opportunity to learn and practice basic methods of tutoring elementary children in reading.

Students will continue to attend the lecture portion of the class throughout the semester in order to receive additional training and participate in workshops. This course, which may be offered in conjunction with a non-profit organization, such as the Boys and Girls Club, is one of the two required field experience courses for the CSUS Blended Teacher Preparation Program. Prior to beginning work in the schools, students may be required to be fingerprinted and must pass a TB test.
