Every Week Your Child Will:

Attend An Exciting Small-Group Class

Your 9th grader will attend a weekly live online class with an expert teacher. In every class, the teacher leads students in engaging book discussions and teaches key writing skills. The teacher also shows students effective techniques for improving reading speed and recall. Your son or daughter will love the teacher and you will, too!

Our small-group discussions help students develop deeper comprehension. Students make connections between the story and their own lives as they explore plot, character development, and rich themes in each book. This will be a unique, meaningful experience for your high schooler.

Complete Engaging, Interactive Skills Lessons

Between classes, students do interactive lessons that build the most important high-school skills. These lessons feature enriching activities and exercises to improve writing skills, expand vocabulary, and teach strategies for reading textbooks & nonfiction.

Your 9th grader will also complete weekly reading assignments that reinforce comprehension instruction from class and provide many opportunities to practice reading speed techniques.

During this program, students build their reading speed, vocabulary, and comprehension in classic novels. These great books feature compelling characters and intriguing stories with the power to engage the imagination and the heart.

Students in our program develop the habit of reading for pleasure, which has an exceptionally positive and lasting impact on them, both academically and personally. Your 9th grader will be inspired by this experience and come away with stronger skills and the motivation to read even more.

Get Lots of Individual Attention & Support

The teacher will work closely with your child and make sure he or she participates fully in every class and makes excellent progress. Between classes, you can schedule one-on-one appointments with the teacher to ask questions or get extra help.

You’ll also have access to our homework helpline for questions about your son or daughter’s reading and writing assignments for school. Plus, at the end of the program, you’ll get a progress report from the teacher.

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.
