Frequently Asked Questions

 

Here are questions we hear most often. We hope this helps answer some of yours! 

How do I sign up my child?

 

Click on "Registration" at the top and fill out the form that you are given a link to. Sign up begins generally in mid to late April.

I have more than one student. Can I sign up both?

 

Yes, but be sure to sign up each child separately to ensure their place in the program. We have had four children in one family more than once! It is all the more fun. Bring the family and relax with a book while they have time with their tutor!

My child is going into Kindergarten next year. Can he/she sign up?

 

Reading Bridge is for students who have finished Kindergarten or any grade through 5th. Keep reading to them and talking about good books! We'll see you next summer!

We can be there for the last four sessions. Can we still sign up?

 

Although we'd love to have your child in our program, it works best when students come to a minimum of 6 sessions. 

Can we sign up if we do not live in Sioux Falls? 

Absolutely! If you are commuting from Kansas, it may be best to find an alternative. But if you live in the area, we have no restrictions. Any child Kindergarten-5th may sign up for Reading Bridge tutoring.

How can I become a tutor for the Reading Bridge program?

Email reading.bridge@yahoo.com. It is preferable to have a teaching degree, extensive substitute experience, or a solid history of working with kids along with a good reference. 

What can I do at home to help my child improve their reading and writing over the summer?

Reading to your child every day is a great way to keep your student thinking about reading and enjoying books. Always make it fun and interesting! Find books your child likes, and avoid making it a chore. 

I'd like a Reading Bridge program in my city. How do I start?
 

We have been asked about starting up locations in various cities. Please contact us using our email: reading.bridge@yahoo.com and we'll be in touch soon!

Is there transportation available?
 

Currently, we do not have transportation available. Our hope is that with the current locations, we will have a site available in your neighborhood. We do not plan on transporting students in the future, but we are considering adding more diverse times to make our services available to everyone.
