Read and Write in 20 Hours


An introductory 20 hour program will take your child reading through primer level of short vowel skills or even beyond into first grade. He will read 30 books, not by sight or memory, but by using phonics, the sounds of the letters. Writing skills are acquired beginning with the very first lesson.


Elementary and High School Age Tutoring Programs

Elementary School
Each grade level builds on previously learned skills. When a student misses some of those skills, trouble begins. One on one tutoring can remedy the problem. Some students learn at a pace faster than, slower than, or differently from the one-size-fits-all approach of the typical class. Our individual lessons adjust the program to fit your child's needs, pace, and strengths. Older elementary school students also benefit from programs incorporating the exact skills of how to study.

Junior High and High School
Critical reading skills and comprehension, including the abilities to evaluate data, make inferences, research, and reach conclusions,  frequently confuse or elude students in any grade. We evaluate the actual vocabulary and comprehension skills of the individual and target the specific components of reading and understanding that need enhancement. No two programs are identical. At times, an earlier level of reading or vocabulary has left a gap in your child's education which, ever since, has caused problems with school. Something can be done about it.
