Tutored Reads

Distinct from the traditional group read, tutored reads involve one-on-one coaching to help you through that intriguing but difficult book!

Whether you need help with history, science, math or language, or just some support and encouragement, the tutored reads thread is the place to find someone to work with you through that book you always wanted to read, but were afraid to tackle.

Coming soon!
