Entry Reading Levels

LearnUp wants your child to learn how to read and we are confident that our approach will get her/him reading at grade level in a short period of time.

While no one can predict exactly how many hours of tutoring your child will need to learn how to read, we are committed to giving you an estimated timeline and cost based on the corresponding entry reading entry-level (or, Starts as we call them).

The reading assessment tells us which entry-level Start is the best one for your child. Generally speaking, the lower the Start the more time it takes to get a child on track. As you child moves through the program, our staff will meet with the family to discuss the child’s reading progress and to get a clearer understanding of the pathway to reading success. Contact us to arrange a free reading assessment. 

Starts are set by reading level, NOT by age.

Our  program pricing includes:

  • Reading assessment
  • Pre- and post- testing using the Woodcock Reading Mastery Test (a nationally normed reading test). We will meet with you to go over the results of the report. 
  • Reading series and tutoring materials, including a spelling book. 
  • Tutoring (55′ sessions) in reading, spelling, and writing

Our reading assessment determines your child’s entry-level, or ‘Start’. The Start  determines how many sessions of tutoring your child will need to learn how to read.  Our goal is to get your child reading at grade level.  Ongoing assessment is critical, and we will continue to monitor and discuss your child’s progress as they learn to read.

A note about costs…

LearnUp Centers recognizes that for many families tutoring is expensive. Typically, LearnUp Centers is more cost effective than other reading programs. Not only are our sessions competitively priced, but because our reading program is very efficient and effective, meaning your child can achieve greater reading gains in less time — saving you time and money.

Our goal is to have your child enrolled in LearnUp for a limited time. We want to teach your child to read so she can get back to her normal school and after-school routine.

One for One

For every full paying child, LearnUp Centers teaches a deserving child to read. We do this through generous investors/donors to LearnUp.
