What do our families say?

Mom to a 2nd grader

Our family can't say ENOUGH about how WONDERFUL we think Ms. Lima is. Our 8YO son greatly struggles with reading, he has some learning disabilities and can get frustrated very easily. These Individual Tutoring sessions have REALLY been amazing. He is progressing quicker than we have ever seen and is doing so with little frustration. Watching his confidence grow and how he has started "self correcting", makes us so happy to see. We truly feel that we have her to thank for this. He looks forward to his time with Ms. Lima. We HIGHLY recommend her for any children who may be struggling keeping up with reading, she makes this online tutoring a very easy process, always positive and has wonderful communication with parents.

Mom to a 2nd grader

She has never read prior to this week. I had no idea that the problem was that she had never been taught phonics. These last two weeks have been eye opening and mind blowing at the same time. So again, thank you for the wonderful work you are doing.

Mom to a 3rd grader

When she started reading, we definitely worked from sight word lists. We were frequently given paragraphs to read with her and she was to "skip over" the words she didn't know. I thought it sounded a little funny, but who was I to question these methods.
I cannot thank you for all of your help. As I write this long-winded text, She is reading a book about bunnies. She would have never done that a few months ago. Thank you for helping her to "light her way."

They're so motivated now. They'll pick up things and just start reading and they're not scared anymore or embarrassed.

Mom to a 1st grader

These past 4 months Angelica has developed our 6-year-old from someone who was afraid of reading and did not like it to someone who truly loves it. He was a good bit behind for his grade level and with her contributions and the implementation of a course of action have contributed significantly to his success. Above all, she is caring and genuinely wants your child to grow and improve. We are so very grateful to have her in our son's corner.

Angelica has been wonderful with my two girls! She is Amazing! My girls where not confident in reading before starting with Angelica. Now they are feeling confident and excited to tutor with her during the week.

My daughter has had difficulties reading since she began school. We have tried other tutoring programs with varying degrees of success. Since starting Viva Phonics, I have seen my daughter gain confidence and a love for reading. My daughter feels successful after every tutoring session. As a parent, I am always kept well informed of my daughter's progress. I cannot recommend this service enough, and grateful to Angelica and the Viva Phonics program.
Amber T.
Viva Phonics services is a great tutoring program. My 7 year old daughter has the pleasure of working with Angelica who is so amazing at her gift. My daughter went from lacking confidence to now building her confidence when reading. She is no longer shy and enjoys reading. The program is teaching your child the breakdown of words and it delivers what is promised the process is worth it.

Miss. Angelica is amazing. She was super patient and helpful with my daughter. I truly appreciated her openness and honesty in regards to the learning disabilities my child may face when it comes to reading. I highly recommend her and cannot thank her enough for her professionalism while working with my daughter.

Imagine your child in just a few¬†weeks…
where will they be if their reading journey starts now?

Where will they be if they don’t?
Don’t leave reading to chance.

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

Frequency Asked Questions

Based on the Science of Reading

Teaching phonics in an explicit, systematic way has been proven to be the most effective method for teaching reading. The program follows a well-planned system that progresses from simple to complex building blocks.

For Readers of All Ages

The online phonics resources can be used with students of all ages. The program is designed with older struggling readers in mind. Older students stay motivated to work on the targeted literacy skills without feeling self-conscious about their current reading ability.

Focused and Direct

Each lesson introduces one new skill and the decodable sentences and stories allow the student to practice previously taught concepts. The student can take as long as needed to master each section.
