Are you worried that your reader may be falling behind? Direct instruction for 25 minutes, twice a week can make all the difference!

Our certified reading specialists, teachers and special educators are masters at what they do! After initial assessment, your reader will join a small group and instruction will directly meet their strengths and weaknesses. Our goal is to grow your reader, engage them in reading and further monitor their development as they progress through the stages of literacy. If our specialists determine that your reader needs specialized instruction due to dyslexia or another language processing difference, we can meet in a one-on-one format or in a small group of similar readers.

Pre-K & Kindergarten: Pre-Emergent Readers

Pre-emergent Readers have an understanding of the alphabet and letter sounds. They enjoy rhyming, identifying letters and love being read to!

Our reading readiness sessions focus on engaging children in reading and understanding book handling, letters and letter sounds, and some early sight words. Early reading skills vary among children and our primary goal is to instill a love of reading and identify any learning differences that may impede literacy development.

Sessions are running and registration is only $99 and includes an informal reading assessment. All readers will be reassessed at the end of the 8 week session. Private instruction may be offered on a limited basis. Please reach out for more information.

1st Grade & 2nd Grade: Emergent Readers & Early Fluent Readers

Emergent Readers have an understanding of the alphabet and letter sounds. They have a large command of many sight words and are beginning to decode new words. Early fluent readers have a greater vocabulary and reading is more automatic.

First and second grade are critical times for reading growth. Using research based strategies, Our certified Specialists will help your emergent or early fluent reader become an independent fluent reader in no time!

3rd Grade Through 6th Grade: Fluent Readers

Fluent Readers have successfully moved from learning to read to reading to learn. Reading is mostly automatic and follows rules of punctuation and expression. Fluent readers can read a wide variety of texts independently as they are able to use their skillset to identify, decode and/or seek understanding to new and challenging vocabulary.

Fluent readers are still experimenting with language and refining their reading skills as they encounter more complex texts. For the most part, fluent readers are able to improve their reading skills independently through consistency and practice. Our fluent reading groups will focus great attention on helping readers to be independent, reinforcing skills, and comprehension strategies when faced with unfamiliar vocabulary and complex text types.

7th Grade Through 8th Grade: Independent Readers

Independent Readers read to enjoy and to learn. Reading is automatic and expressive. Independent readers can read a wide variety of texts independently as they are able to use their skillset to identify, decode and/or seek understanding to new and challenging vocabulary.

Independent readers are engaging with new and challenging texts–many times with content specific vocabulary. Independent readers are still experimenting with language and refining their reading skills as they encounter more complex texts. When encountering more mature, and challenging texts, independent readers must critically think, analyze and synthesize information. During sessions, readers will encounter challenging texts and practice critical thinking skills.
