• The Reading Group Introduces Homework Helpers!

    Homework Helpers allows students to bring their Chromebooks, other homework devices, or workbooks and to work independently in socially distanced small groups, with a qualified teacher/tutor roving between the students to help as needed. Students may be logged on for their official class time, or working on homework from their class sessions, or working quietly.

    Sessions should be scheduled to include time when students have the work and the attention span to stay busy; in the 1-2.5 hour range.
    The cost is $20/hour.

    To register and get further information, please call The Reading Group between 10:00 and 5:00 p.m. at 217-351-9144.
