“My wife and I believe Evan has truly benefited from this program. He has a new appreciation for reading which we find amazing. He seemed to like the online work the most as he equated it to playing a game! He also liked his teacher which kept the lessons light and lively, which is right in the children’s wheelhouse at this age. Simply put he enjoyed his time and most importantly we believe he has benefited from this program.”

“My child enjoyed the classroom interaction and learning a few sight words that helped him read a book. It really encouraged him to continue to learn to read. He started going around telling people that he knows how to read. He was excited about that. You can tell that his confidence about reading has greatly improved.”

“Her confidence before the program was pretty shaky. Now, she’s willing to just jump right in and start sounding out various parts of the words. Her confidence level is growing tremendously and now she’s able to read pretty smoothly through sentences that she was never able to do before.”

“I can see already when he takes home an assignment and he’s trying to read the chapters for his schoolwork, he does it with much more efficiency. He seems more confident. I know he’s applying what he’s learned in class.”
