Check out the comments from parents and students of these classes!

“I love the daily classes, which I feel are imperative for children. The classes are short frequent bursts of information which require auditory and visual processing, and require the child to work through delays in those areas. I think my children previously felt beaten down emotionally. The Developmental Reading classes give them positive feedback from the other students and the quick gratification has made a huge difference.”

 ~Gail, Parent

"I think the class is really great. If students take the class seriously, then they can really learn a lot."

~Michael, Student

“Developmental Reading is a great class!  It is helpful and I learned a lot from it. I would take this class very seriously because it improved my reading skills.”

~Alicia, Student

“…Every day, he is waiting for his class with excitement and a smile.  I feel happy because it is four days a week for the whole semester.  I looked for a tutor before and I couldn't find him one. Thanks to online reading classes, I got the help I was looking for without leaving my home, not extra gas, or driving far and not waiting for a tutor to come to my house.”

~R.T., Parent

My daughter took Developmental Reading and it made marked improvement in her reading abilities… She is now able to read at her grade level with ease.   I would definitely recommend to anyone who has a student struggling with reading to give this class a try.”

~Melissa, Parent

“Before S. took this class, he was one of the last ones to complete his STAR exam and his scores were low.  Reading was a struggle and he didn’t really enjoy it.  After the class, he completed his testing with the majority of his peers and scored proficient on his exam.”

~J.L., Parent
