About Us

Who We Are

Changing Lives Through Reading Success

Our one-on-one reading program uses a proven “back to the basics” method developed by Cliff Ponder, founder of the elite Academic Associates® reading program. Students benefit from one-on-one instruction as they significantly improve their understanding of reading concepts and reach their full academic potential.


We help students achieve through one-on-one reading instruction.


We believe there is potential in every child and help uncover this ability in all our students.


Our instructors want what’s best for our students in school and beyond.


What We Offer

If your child needs extra support with math, our math program (offered only at our Mesquite location) gives students an added boost in reinforcing basic math facts, understanding foundational concepts, and developing problem-solving skills that stimulate divergent and creative thinking.

Reading programs

Our reading program is designed to help students not only read better, but foster a love of reading.

Early Readers

Our education programs empower students to become their very best.
Pre-school students get a firm foundation in phonics and reading as they learn letters, sounds and begin blending these sounds into words. As they develop a familiarity with letters and an awareness of the sounds of phonemes, they are ready to learn about letter-sound correspondence.

Math programs

If your child could use extra support with math, enroll in one of our math programs offered in our Mesquite location.

My wife and I want to thank you for all your help with Michael. He was in resource classes for
2 ½ years and with your help he was able to go to general education classes within 9 months. He has been able to stay in general ed. classes all last year. Thank you.

-Arnold V.

Such amazing progress! In a little more than one year my child has progressed from 2nd grade to 8th grade reading level. Thank you is simply not enough to express my gratitude. It is such a joy to see him able to do his schoolwork independently.
