Area children receive tutoring

Seven graduate and undergraduate students in Eastern New Mexico University’s College of Education are providing reading tutoring for 14 area children this summer.
Ranging in grades from kindergarten to high school, the students come from Floyd, Elida, Muleshoe, Texico, Portales and Clovis.
“The clinic is especially valuable because the children receive individualized instruction. The clinic works on reading, writing and ‘word work,’” Assistant Professor of Reading Kathleen Donalson said.
Donalson and her husband, Dan Greathouse of the Portales schools, tested children in the spring who had been identified by parents or their teachers, then prioritized them by need.
