About We Teach Reading

Unlock your child’s potential.

Help your child become a confident reader and enthusiastic learner.

Children who have trouble with reading typically have an underlying learning difficulty that’s not yet been identified. That means they’ll continue to fall behind, regardless of how much extra time they spend with a tutor.

We Teach Reading is not tutoring. Rather, it’s a proven, comprehensive approach that identifies why your child is struggling and then addresses the root concern.

We work with kids of all ages who:
● Get average grades but exert disproportionate effort.
● Have been diagnosed with (or show signs of) a learning disability or dyslexia.
● Struggle with comprehension, even though they do well with the mechanics of reading.
● Really (like, really, really) dislike writing.
● Have a hard time keeping up at school because of reading and spelling challenges.

When a student’s needs match our specialities, the results are dramatic and long-lasting. With We Teach Reading, your child will become a confident reader and enthusiastic learner.

We’ve helped more than 3,000 kids become better readers.

“This program identified the issues my son was struggling with, created and executed a plan to help with these issues, and showed the results of the work performed. I am confident the investment will give my son the skills he needs to excel in his education.

“In first grade, my daughter was diagnosed with four different learning disabilities. She’s now a freshman in high school now and no longer meets the criteria for any learning disabilities. I am amazed at my daughter’s progress!”

“Besides improving my daughter’s grades, her ability and interest in reading has also improved beyond measure. You have opened up a whole new world for my daughter!

We’re parents, too.

Stephen & Claudia McCrocklin, Directors of We Teach Reading

We’re also personally familiar with learning challenges. Stephen has dyslexia and had a tough time learning to read, and Claudia has been a special education teacher. Together, we have a daughter who struggled with a language-based learning disability. 

If you’re a parent who’s worried about your child’s academic progress, we’ve been in your shoes—and we want you to know it’s going to be OK! Since 1992, we’ve been helping kids become confident readers and enthusiastic learners… and we can help yours, too.

Commonly Asked Questions

Shouldn’t my child’s school be responsible for reading instruction?

We’ve talked with hundreds of loving parents who are willing to do whatever it takes to support their child’s learning—and who also feel frustrated having to find outside help. They can’t help but wonder if their child’s school should be doing more. That’s perfectly understandable.

Here’s what we want you to know: Your school cares about your child and wants to help them succeed. The problem is they have lots of kids who need help, so they may not be able to help as quickly as they—or you—would prefer.

It’s also important to know We Teach Reading isn’t meant to replace classroom instruction. In fact, we collaborate with our students’ schools, teachers, and other professionals the whole way to ensure your child gets the comprehensive, personalized help they deserve.

 

Does online reading instruction really work?

Absolutely! We’re able to do everything online that we’d do in person, including our research-backed teaching methods, interactive learning activities, and multi-sensory instruction. Plus, your kids will be too busy having fun to realize they’re actually learning.

How do you know the instruction is working?

Fair question! Our services begin with a comprehensive evaluation of your child’s strengths and challenges. From there, we put together a customized, step-by-step plan. As we work the plan together, we continually monitor progress and make adjustments along the way. Finally, we include a wrap-up assessment so you can see your child’s transformation. (Although you won’t need a piece of paper to notice the difference; you’ll see it in their attitude and behavior!)

I’m a parent, not a teacher. What’s my role?

Although we do the official instruction, you’re an integral part of your child’s reading journey! We’ll equip you with the tools you need to support your child’s progress, and we’ll provide regular updates so you can celebrate all their successes.

How long will it take to see results?

Until we understand your child’s unique strengths and challenges, we can’t predict their plan length. After their evaluation, we’ll be able to give a time estimate, and we’ll give you weekly updates so you’ll never be surprised by a change of plans.

Do I have to commit to a certain number of sessions?

Nope! We have a no-strings-attached policy. We don’t require contracts, and you can cancel services at any time without penalty.
