Speed Reading Course

The Learning Center is excited to announce our newly redesigned 5-week Speed Reading Course! Students who attend the course can expect to increase their reading speed and save time! Course registrants will have access to our Speed Reading software for a full year so they can continue to improve on their own after the course is complete. In-person courses meet for 90 minutes weekly. 

The LC's Speed-Reading Program can help you improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your reading by:

  • Increasing your reading speed

  • Training in speed reading techniques via face-to-face instruction and computer program exercises

  • Gaining hands-on instruction with techniques and strategies to support your reading comprehension

Topics covered include foundations of speed-reading techniques, peripheral vision, phrase reading, how students learn best, and comprehension and memory strategies.

How does the class work?

  • Up to eight students meet once a week for 90 minutes for five weeks (in the in-person sections).

  • Multiple five-week sessions are offered every fall and spring.
