LearnUp Centers teaches struggling readers, with or without a diagnosis of dyslexia, to read at grade level and beyond. In about 1/2 the time of most other programs. Here is what makes us unique:
Structured literacy.We use structured phonics with proprietary chapter books to systematically teach kids to read.
Blended curriculum.We combine the best methodologies from nationally-recognized reading programs with the latest brain research.
Hands-on and experiential.It’s tactile, it’s fun, and ½ of every session is spent actually reading books.
One-on-one tutoring.Focused sessions with highly-trained, energetic tutors give your kids the skills and confidence to read.

“LearnUp centers is amazing… my son ended the program seven weeks later at a 4th-grade level where he should be but more importantly with a love of reading.” – Mary Flynn, LearnUp parent
LearnUp is evidenced based.While testimonials are incredibly powerful, we use multiple assessment methods to measure the true impact of the program.
