Even parents can learn with the Dicker Reading Method

Unlike many other tutoring centers whose focus is on simply teaching a child, we at the Dicker Reading Method know the importance of parent participation. Our parents are trained to reinforce their child’s learning in a positive, nurturing manner. Here is what one of our parents, Maria of Danbury, CT, had to say about the Dicker Reading Method Parent Training:

“The training was very helpful! I learned to be more positive toward my child. Prior to the training, she had been resistant when working with me. The Dicker Reading Method gave me the knowledge and confidence work with my daughter in a loving and nurturing way.”

Keep up the good work, Angel!

We’ve just heard from one of our tutors that 12-year-old Angel from White Plains, NY is now reading on a 9th grade level! When Angel came to the Dicker Reading Method less than 11 months ago, he was reading on a 4th grade level. His tutor reports that not only is he reading levels above his grade, he is more confident and loves going to school. Great job!

What Our Parents Are Saying…

At the Dicker Reading Method, we value our parents’ feedback.   Here’s what some of our parents have to say about their experience:

“Meagan is age 3 ½ and already reading on a 1st grade level!  Her teacher, Julie, is excellent!  She knew just how to handle a very shy, reluctant young child.  Julie worked magic in turning Meagan into a happy reader.” –Odile, Hastings-on-Hudson, NY

“My daughter and my son have both made tremendous gains with the Dicker Reading Method.  Diana was reading on a 1st grade level when she was the 3rd grade.  In less than 1 year, she was reading on a 5th grade level and scored in the 99th percentile of the standardized tests.  Jason, age 4, started in the Preschool program and is now reading on a 2nd grade level.” – Graciela, White Plains, NY

“Big Al’s parent training was very beneficial to me.  It gave me insight into my own behavior and how I can best help my daughter…My 4-year-old learned 25 words in her first session.  She had so much fun and felt like she was playing a game!  I was amazed to see immediate results after one session!”  — Francesca, Putnam Valley, NY

Straight from the Tutor’s Mouth

Our tutors at the Dicker Reading Method are exceptional!  We are so fortunate to have some of the most dedicated, knowledgeable reading specialists on staff.  Here’s what some of our tutors have to say about the Dicker Reading Method:

“I really enjoy working with my students and seeing how quickly they progress at the Dicker Reading Method.  I’ve worked with countless children of all ages who are reading below, at, and even above grade level, even children who had been labeled as LD, ADD, ADHD, or Dyslexic.  The progress I’ve seen each individual student make through the Dicker Reading Method has been incredible.  We’re talking 1 grade level of improvement every month or two.  At the end of a year, that’s 6 years of reading advancement.  It’s amazing!”

“The Dicker Reading Method really does work for everyone, even children with special needs.  I’ve been working with Nicky, a student with Down syndrome for over 2.5 years.  When we first started working together, he knew less than 10 words.  His teachers even said that it would be very difficult, even impossible to get him to read fluently.  Now, he’s reading on a 4th grade level.  His comprehension and vocabulary skills are continuously improving.  And it’s all because of the Dicker Reading Method.”

“I’m a reading tutor and I love reading now, but I didn’t always used to.  As a child, I struggled learning how to read.  When I see how there is no struggle for my students, and how easy and fun the Dicker Reading Method makes reading, it makes me wish that the Dicker Reading Method had been available to me as a child.  The Dicker Reading Method really is a blessing.  It removes the struggle entirely so that all students are met with success!”
