Learn How to Teach Reading
We are excited to have our reading partner, Steve Tattum, founder of the Tattum
Reading Program and reading expert, facilitate this engaging workshop on how to teach struggling readers to read at grade level and beyond. It is a rare opportunity to have the founder of a successful reading program, teach, mentor and guide you through the ins and outs of one of the most effective reading programs in the country.
Why LearnUp Centers Reading Program?
Many programs can teach kids to read. LearnUp is more effective and efficient—using
one-on-one tutoring to teach struggling readers to read in about half the time as most other major reading programs. LearnUp integrates the best practices of the leading reading programs on the market and combines them with the latest brain research and National Reading Panel recommendations to create a superior, systematic program that accelerates reading acquisition.
While LearnUp Centers is a new nonprofit in San Francisco, Tattum Reading Program has more than a 15-year track record of getting kids reading at grade level. LearnUp Centers has been tutoring struggling readers since January 2016. Our first cohort of students all entered the program reading below grade level. And now, according to the results of pre/post test scores on the nationally normed Woodcock Reading Mastery Test III, those who have finished their program, are reading at grade level.
