WHERE TO START
At-risk students may struggle with all subjects throughout their school years. This program helps achieve superior outcomes by addressing the academic needs of the student at risk for reading failure.
REINFORCING CRITICAL READING SKILLS
A set of very specific critical skills is at the core of good reading. Our goal is to pinpoint any reading problem your child is having and provide the necessary instruction to correct those problems.
Students are more successful in school, at work, and in their personal lives when they are proficient, confident and expressive writers.

What people are saying about our services
My daughter was in second grade and was having difficulty in the classroom with reading and comprehension. After Ms. Buss assessed her, I learned she was reading on a first grade level. She was tutored twice a week for most of the school year. Before starting 3rd grade, this year, she was reading on beginning 3rd grade level, had mastered her phonemic awareness skills, and was understanding what she read. I am very pleased with her growth.
