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