Virtual Class Testimonials

Even through a screen, Wendy & Carol evoked a sense of comfort and confidence in my daughter. She was able to participate in the class almost completely independently and looked forward to learning each week. Thank you, Reading Rookies!

My daughter attended Reading Rookies and I've never seen her so engaged virtually! The teachers had great crafts, activities, and movement involved in learning to read and write. Each kid on the screen was involved and participating, and had a chance to share their answers and thoughts. She looked forward to the sessions twice a week and she walked away feeling more confident in her literacy, and I was so pleased to see her comfort level participating in a group of kids and teachers she did not know. Clearly the teachers made it fun and comfortable from the beginning. We would highly recommend this program!

We started Reading Rookies when my 4.5 year old daughter was starting pre-K. In the midst of a pandemic we were skeptical if zoom classes would work for kids her age. I have to say within 1 to 2 weeks we were more than assured that signing up was the best choice for my daughter. The kids remained engaged in class and seemed to really enjoy it. The class is divided into alphabet recognition/discussion, writing, story time and a craft. Her teacher has worked diligently and effectively with the kids and we have noticed significant progress. We intend to continue with these classes and my daughter is really looking forward to it.

Caroline is really enjoying Reading Rookies. It is a great chance for her to socialize with her friends, work on her "zoom" skills and also practice her letter sounds. We appreciate that despite the class being virtual, the students are still actively doing art projects, games and other activities. It is very hands on and interactive.

Welcome to Reading Rookies

Reading Rookies' enrichment classes cultivate pre-reading and reading skills that give children the building blocks they need to feel self-assured. Children have different learning styles. We embrace these differences.  We engage children through fun and multi-sensory activities.  These activities will build your child's confidence in his or her abilities.  Our goal is to inspire children to be life-long learners. We, therefore, teach the necessary phonemic awareness and phonics skills your child needs to read and spell.
