We combine the best methodologies from nationally-recognized reading programs with the latest brain research.

One-Week Summer Reading Sprints are Here!
Summer is a great time to learn new reading skills, solidify gains, or deepen reading and comprehension skills. Like our school year sessions, summer programs are designed to meet your child where they are and move their reading forward quickly. Click To Sign Up/Learn More!
We have created a summer tutoring calendar to match the hustle and bustle of summer schedules. In what we are calling One Week Reading Sprints, each week is a self-contained program allowing families to sign-up week by week and at times that fit their child's availability. All the summer reading sessions will be conducted over Zoom, which also means you can continue tutoring regardless of your summer location.
