We could not be happier with the results of our 7yo son.

He was struggling in class, being bored and confused most of the time (especially with virtual learning setting). One-on-One approach helped build his confidence and skills set. Ms. Ellen is wonderful, attentive, supportive and kind. The approach works and we are hoping to meet all the goals!

About Viva Phonics

I’m Angelica and I created this online reading intervention program when I started working 1:1 with students who struggled with reading. I found that many times students were being sent home with sight word lists that had no logical pattern and included words that could easily be decoded. Students weren’t able to blend simple words and when they didn’t know a word they would just guess!

The only way to fill the skills gaps was to relearn to read. Starting from scratch ensured that students had the foundational skills needed to grasp more complex concepts within the Viva Phonics program and beyond.

After more than a century of frustration, it has now been shown that the brain can be rewired and that struggling children can become skilled readers. Sally Shaywitz, M.D., Overcoming Dyslexia
