Asheville’s Oldest and Finest Tutorial Service Helping Students Achieve Success in Learning since 1982.

Arden Reading Clinic is a full-service tutorial with an added specialty; we know how to teach and reach students who struggle with learning challenges. Our  population of students with learning differences varies along a continuum from mild to severe. Some students have single areas of weakness, while others have multiple deficits. Some students simply need a boost in a specific subject area while others require more intensive, directed, and structured systematic teaching.

We encourage early intervention, and our success lies in giving a full hour of one-on-one instruction, 2-5 times per week. Tutor and student will remain together until programming is completed. All students are assessed on an individual basis, and an educational program is created based on individual needs. At Arden Reading Clinic we partner with you in your child’s education. We often consult with schools, principals, and counselors to create a more comprehensive team approach. We love to teach and are committed to each individual success.

Teachers at Arden Reading Clinic are expert tutors, all with years of experience in the field. Please be assured that while our tutors are professionals, more importantly they are nurturing teachers, qualified to raise your child’s grades and self-esteem. Each teacher participates in intensive training before becoming a tutor for ARC and continues to undergo ongoing training in specific research-based teaching methods as new curricula are developed.

Arden Reading Clinic offers student instruction in Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Study Skills, Vocabulary, Test Prep, SAT/ACT Preparation, and Multi-Sensory-Language and Math Instruction. Multi-sensory instruction simultaneously employs all pathways of learning: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic-tactile. We use a multi-sensory approach as the foundation for all instruction, thereby embedding and enhancing neuro-pathways for memory and learning.

In addition, Arden Reading Clinic collaborates with home school and private school communities by providing educational consultations as well as workshops on effective curriculum and instruction.  ARC offers on-site and off-site end of year school testing for all grade levels. Our Executive Director, Dr. Marcy Sirkin, offers comprehensive assessments for both Cognitive and Achievement testing using the Woodcock-Johnson IV. She is happy to consult privately with you and/or meet with the child’s school to help design the most appropriate educational programming.

Arden Reading Clinic North has successfully helped thousands of bright young minds bridge the gap between their achievement and their true potential. To become a part of our family, please call or email us: 828-658-9448 or
