Welcome to

Sprouting Readers!

We know each child is unique and has different strengths and needs. We are here to support your child – be it helping to find more joy and excitement about reading and writing, offering focused support learning letters, sounds and words, decoding, building fluency and/or deepening comprehension. We can schedule an online assessment of your child’s literacy strengths and needs and make a plan to best support you and your child. With a number of expert, experienced tutors, we will match a tutor to your child’s needs and your family’s schedule. We can’t wait to see your Sprouting Reader bloom!

The progress our son has made has been awesome to witness. Over the summer before first grade he would get frustrated and hardly even read a page. Within a week of starting tutoring you could see his confidence and excitement to read grow. We are forever grateful for your time spent helping our child.

We are so happy to see the changes that have come when our son is with you in class! The ‘struggles’ seem to fade and his confidence soars. We appreciate all you have done to help his progress with reading.
