The Reading Kingdom is, for me, a dream come true. Several decades ago, I began my journey into the world of teaching reading. Then, as now, reading failure was rampant across the nation– – current figures hover at an astounding 40%. I knew that there had to be a better way to teach children how to read.
Gradually, the pieces fell into place. As I examined reading instruction materials, I saw that whole areas were ignored or distorted. I started to design programs to make the full range of reading skills accessible and enjoyable to children. The rewards were fantastic. There is nothing like hearing a child declare that they love reading, or having a parent thank you for helping their child learn this crucial skill.
Over the years I’ve created dozens of reading programs, seen thousands of clients, written several books on reading and education, and have fine-tuned my teaching methods. I also have the amazing good fortune of having a son who is an entrepreneur, experienced in both setting up internet companies and software development. Together we have created the online version of my reading system which is the heart of Reading Kingdom. We are grateful to be working with a team of extraordinarily talented and passionate people.
All of us welcome you to the Reading Kingdom where we hope to bring fun, achievement and success to every child — and their families!
