Kindergarten Readiness Includes:

To become a proficient reader, children must have mastery of very specific skills they might have missed due to interrupted preschool. We will ensure your child has the base skills to master the rigors of Kindergarten. Our program will:

  • Ensure your child has letter sounds mastered
  • Teach how to sound out words for reading and spelling
  • Teach the heart-word method for learning sight words
  • Teach how to add and subtract sounds in words for better spelling
  • Focus on printing letters correctly and neatly
  • One-on-one instruction, personalized to your child
  • Three times per week, 45-60-minute sessions, for 10 weeks
  • June – August / Days and weeks customized for you!

Every lesson contains the five building blocks of reading taught systematically, at your child’s pace, till they have mastered it.

Aspire uses the Wilson Reading System, the most popular and well-researched systematic phonics program in the United States. We are one of the few centers that provide 1-to-1 individual tutoring, not group tutoring! Your child will make gains faster when tutored individually, with the same instructor every time.

The American Academy of Pediatrics states that students who struggle to learn foundational reading skills need a systematic phonics program, delivered in a one-on-one setting, at the student’s pace to attain grade-level reading.

We can also screen your child for dyslexia, the leading reason children struggle with reading.
