Fluent Readers

"I thought he would read aloud, but he said he wanted to read to himself. I kind of assumed he wasn't really reading the chapter when he was doing it in his head. But when he said he was done, I asked him to tell me what happened, and he was able to pretty clearly articulate what he had read. I was astonished and proud."


Fourth Grade

Barnaby Woods, Washington, DC


"Sam [who worked with Kids Up Reading Coaches 2 years ago] is doing extremely well with his reading at school. Today we got his reading scores, and he is in the 90th percentile."


Second Grade

St. Paul, Minnesota



"Our child went from basically ZERO phonics to being able to sound words out within the academic year. Highly recommend if your child needs help with reading." 


Sixth Grade

Hyattsville, MD


"Our second grader was struggling with reading and was assessed as dyslexic.  We started working with Kids Up Reading and 6 months later her reading, spelling, and confidence levels have all improved dramatically."


Second Grade

McLean, VA

"His reading is phenomenal and brought tears to my eyes. I could never, ever have imagined last November that I would see my sweet boy in March reading a My Weird School book fluently and taking such JOY from the experience."


First Grade

Chevy Chase, DC


"Over the summer, I noticed that my daughter (who was going into the 6th grade) was struggling reading fluently and pronouncing certain words that should come easily to someone her age.  I searched for reading tutors and found Kids Up Reading Coaches.  Daniela and Caitlin worked with her for over 3 months and they transformed her into a strong, confident reader.  Her spelling has improved and I can see that she truly enjoys reading now.  The team is amazing and I am truly grateful that we found them!"


Sixth Grade

La Jolla, CA

"My 7-year-old daughter is mildly dyslexic, and when she left first grade she wasn't able to read for more than 10 agonizing minutes before giving up, exhausted and upset. She started with Kids Up the summer between first and second, and it turns out she's an avid leisure reader — she just needed her ability to be unlocked. Halfway through second grade, she's reading fluently for a couple hours a day (!)."


Second Grade

Rockville, MD



"[She] is so much improved. She seems to be flying through Diary of a Pug, not getting tripped up on too many words, handling some tricky words well, understanding the story as she reads, and clearly enjoying it with her dramatic renditions."


Third Grade

AU Park, Washington, DC

"Kids Up Reading Coaches worked around our school schedule and was able to not only catch them up to their peers, but also instill a love of reading."


First & Third Grade

Boise, ID


"Daniela was instrumental in advancing my daughter's ability to read.  She helped guide us through a diagnosis, getting help through the school, and encouraging my daughter to flourish.  I highly recommend her services to everyone and anyone."


Second Grade

Seattle, WA

Good Spellers

"When we saw some of his reading and writing work, we were absolutely blown away.  He was able to write a whole story about his first karate class, using excellent grammar and spelling."


Second Grade

Chevy Chase, DC


"Madeline reports that she got all the words right on her spelling test today. Thank you!!!"

"We have appreciated the detailed updates you have provided, your incredible patience, flexibility, and enthusiastic positivity. I know [he] has really enjoyed working with you and we are grateful for his progress, especially in spelling."

Ninth Grade

"The biggest difference to me is how little I have to coach him (aka fight him) on writing a complete sentence any more."


Fourth Grade

Wilmington, NC

Confident Students

"Peter's conference made me cry, in a good way. His teacher says he is doing extremely well, absolutely on track, and that she never, ever would have imagined that he was behind grade level expectations last year."


First Grade

Chevy Chase, DC

 

"Sammie says the tutoring is really helping and she feels more confident reading out loud at school this year."

"Maxi has really blossomed into an excellent reader under your guidance.  He is doing very well in school, reading on his own for pleasure, and even helping other kids in his classroom."


Kindergarten 

Cleveland Park, DC


"My daughter did not like to read and was struggling with her reading fluency, especially after the pandemic. The one-on-one time she spend with her reading tutor really boosted her confidence and prepared her for middle school."


Second Grade

Arlington, VA

"It's even more amazing to see every day. She helped me do her sisters' bedtime story a few nights ago - and it was fun! no stress! Totally confident. It's truly amazing."


First Grade

Cleveland Park, DC


"He's definitely improving and becoming more confident in reading... And I love the detailed reports of things he's working on."


Fifth Grade

"Our 7 year old son was behind in reading and Kids Up has greatly increased his reading confidence.  We noticed improvement quickly and he was catching up to his peers in only a few months.  He now reads for fun!"


First Grade

Palisades, Washington, DC

"I'm not exaggerating in saying I'm amazed at the results. After she'd been in tutoring for about four months, we had her 504 meeting at the school. We all decided she didn't need a 504 plan at all — she is reading at grade level and excelling academically."


Second Grade

Rockville, MD

"Elsa’s teacher was saying how much confidence she's built up over the course of the year when it comes to reading and writing out stories and thoughts."
