About Us

Here's why we started LearnUp.

Here's why it works.

We use a proven curriculum.

Created by Steve Tattum, LearnUp’s reading director, our curriculum has a 20+-year track record of success in teaching kids with learning differences to read.

We have a unique co-location model.

We house our centers at prestigious universities and corporate campuses to reduce both the stigma and shame of struggling readers as well as the cost to participants.

We offer one-for-one scholarships.

We believe that everyone deserves the gift of reading, regardless of income. So, as a nonprofit, we raise funds to provide scholarships to readers in need.

We invest in our tutors.

Our tutors possess three main strengths: a linguistic gift; an ability to learn, mirror, and teach a reading lesson; and possession of key characteristics of an effective educator and mentor. We provide rigorous training to make sure they have the pedagogy and personality to teach and motivate your kids to read.
