Success stories

Real stories from real people

Since 2005, Wyzant has provided a way for people to learn any subject in a way that works for them.

Jiameng Z.

68 Reading lessons

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.
Geraldine C.

10 Reading lessons

In fact, she is hired by school districts to teach how to teach reading. She is an answered prayer as our son is a struggling reader and a year behind in his expected reading level. My husband and I wanted a Reading Specialist, not a tutor but an expert, a diagnostician who can evaluate & determine our son's current reading level, enhance his reading strengths and attack his weaknesses with research and evidence-based strategies.
Shaneika W.

64 Reading lessons

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.
