How do our programs compare?

et|icon_datareport_alt|

Proven Curriculum

We are reading experts with 50 years of experience teaching students the skills they need for every grade in school.

Independent tutors often have no established curriculum designed for your child to make steady, incremental progress.

et|icon_group|

Outstanding Teachers

Our highly trained teachers know how to keep every student engaged as they learn new skills and develop a lifelong love of reading.

Tutors can have a range of experience and are unlikely to be experts when it comes to online instruction for children in different stages of reading development.

et|icon_chat|

Exciting Weekly Classes

Small-group classes allow our students to explore big ideas with their peers, while still getting plenty of individual attention.

Exclusive one-on-one tutoring doesn’t provide the same opportunities for meaningful discussion that pulls students into books.

et|icon_desktop|

Engaging Skills Lessons

Fun, interactive lessons keep students learning the right skills for their grade throughout the week.

Tutors might not have ready-made, high quality supplemental learning materials for your child to use between sessions

et|icon_book|

Carefully Selected Books

We don’t just choose grade-appropriate books. We pick great books that are sure to engage kids’ curiosity, imagination, and heart.

Other learning programs often don’t allow students to read whole books, making it difficult to develop the habit of reading for pleasure.

et|icon_currency|

Great Overall Value

Your child will get weekly instruction, effective lessons and support, great books, and more – for a lot less than tutoring.

You could pay $100+/week for a private tutors or learning programs, most of which also have large fees to start.

For less than $38/week!

As a result of this one-of-a-kind value, many parents re-enroll their children season after season. In fact, over 80% of our fall openings were quickly filled by past participants.
