Live Online Classes With An Expert Teacher

Each week, students attend a live online class with an expert teacher who leads discussions that bring kids ‘inside’ a classic novel for a unique, immersive experience. Students learn techniques to increase reading speed and to improve and monitor their comprehension. Each class also includes writing instruction that teaches 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 discuss key elements of literature like plot and character development and explore the rich themes of the novel. They make connections between the story and their own lives and get completely absorbed in the 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.

They develop the habit of reading for pleasure, which has a lasting impact on them academically and personally.

You’ll also receive our digital Best Books Booklist which will help your child select excellent books after the program is over.
