My girls have been reading all the books he recommended and are looking forward to reading the books he recommends at the next level. Richard encourages the girls to think during the reading by asking relevant questions about the book, and he encourages the girls to write about the story and their thoughts about the story after they finish reading it. With Richard’s help, the girls not only learn how to read but also learn about life, about how to be a good person from these books.

My son has always been behind in Reading. I have tried all kinds of programs, Hooked on Phonics, Kumon, ABC Mouse, Reading Eggs, and even other tutors. In November 2013, Dominic was diagnosed with Convergence Insufficiency, where his eyes do not “team” well for the purpose of reading. While he seemed to do better with therapy, he was still very much behind with his reading skills. Over the summer (between third and fourth grade), I sought the help of finding a tutor through WzyAnt.

Sheryl is very thorough in her after lesson summary so that my husband and I know exactly how our son is progressing and what they are working on. She has provided many suggestions which we have implemented at home and at school which have improved his grades and confidence. Prior to Sheryl's tutoring with Barton our son was really struggling with reading, spelling, and math (since Math is very heavily reading now). He's in 4th grade. He started Barton at the end of 3rd grade.
