Live Online Classes With An Expert Teacher

Each week, your child will attend a live online class with an expert teacher who leads activities and discussions that bring kids ‘inside’ books for a unique, immersive experience. Each class also includes fun writing instruction and activities that teach students to effectively communicate their ideas.

Leading discussions is our specialty—our experienced teachers make sure every student participates, every student speaks, and every student is heard. Students make connections between the story and their own lives, identify with the characters, and get completely absorbed in each book. This meaningful experience won’t just set your child up for success at school—it also has the power to shape who your child is as a person.
