FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are the benefits of literacy classes?
Literacy is FUN! We strive to help your child catch up to age level reading skills or get your child ahead of the curve. Our classes promote play and movements to help our students learn letters and sounds. We explore phonological awareness, phonics, and other reading skills. Students also learn to set goals and work to achieve them. In each class, we review, we practice and we introduce new skills. This can lead to comfort and confidence in many other academic related activities. Literacy classes can provide a lifetime of loving to learn. Your child can also make new friends in our small group classes. We provide a Nearpod literacy lesson on phonics, phonemic awareness, and phonological awareness to all of our new parents, so you can understand the reasoning behind WHY we use the strategies we use. We also provide each family with a log in for our online platform. Students will have "homefun" assignments to complete between lessons to help with carryover of the skills learned in our lessons. We truly believe parents can be the BEST teachers if they have the right tools.
How long are the lessons?
Lessons are 30 minutes total in length. The first 25 minutes are direct instruction, and the last 5 minutes are dedicated to the teacher coaching the parent for what to do until the next session. This allows the right amount of time for both young and novice students to learn and practice skills.
What size is the class?
We limit our literacy classes to a 4:1 ratio, students to teachers. Spanish classes have a 6:1 ratio. This allows the students to get the ideal level of attention from their teacher, while still having the opportunity to observe their peers performing their skills.
Should I do private lessons or small group classes?
It depends on your goals. If you are wanting to see faster progress, we recommend private lessons 1-3x week. We are able to focus on your child's individual strengths, weaknesses, and interests. Private sessions are booked in a bundle of 6 paid $50 per session, so the student and parents can get adjusted to the literacy strategies.
If you are looking for a more affordable rate and/or social interaction for your child, we recommend group classes. You can also choose to do a combination of private & small group classes for more practice!
How much is tuition?
Our year-round, once-a-week 30 minute small group lessons are $20/lesson paid in advance at the beginning of the month. Tuition for small group classes is due by the 1st of each month. Our private literacy lessons are $50/lesson to be paid at the beginning of each session.

Do you offer make up sessions or refunds for missing small group classes? No, when you pay for the month, you are taking a spot in the class. No refunds. No make up classes. We provide monthly video lessons and dinner learning placemats to go along with our lessons.
Lesson start & end time?
All lessons start & end promptly. If you are late, your lesson will NOT be extended. If you leave for an errand, please return 5 minutes before class ends to get feedback from the teacher.

SMALL GROUP- Parents are not able to watch. Parents can wait in the lobby or in their cars.
When will my child learn to read?
Unfortunately, there isn’t a universal answer to this question. There are many factors that play into learning to read and it also depends on your definition of "reading." Every child is unique and therefore learns to read at a different pace. Parents also need to understand REQUIRES a commitment. You MUST regularly practice the skills we teach at home. Learning to read can take children years to accomplish. It is important for parents to have realistic expectations for their children. Please avoid comparing your child to others. Positive reinforcement and consistency are vital for your child’s success. We do not offer a guarantee. Regardless of what the final goal may be, we feel it’s important that the child learns to have a love of learning!
