More About the Reading Lessons

More Than a Reading Teacher

I've worked with both public and private schools and in conjunction with child psychologists assisting children and parents in overcoming roadblocks in learning.

For years, I've witnessed a systematic decline in the effectiveness of public education and a rising number of parents looking for answers. The good news is: parents have the power to change the learning trajectory of their children's lives. With a bit of extra support, you, the parent, can help your child master the foundational skills needed to be successful learners and confident readers with just a few minutes each day.

As a mom of two little girls myself, I know the lengths we go to to help our children achieve a successful, thriving life. While I can't fix a broken system, I'm here to tell you — there is a way, and I will help you. I'm so glad that you've found me. Let's get started!

It's nice to meet you! I'm Tavia Young, a long-time educator, parent advocate and tutor for young children.

Resources for You

“Self-esteem is made up of primarily two things: feeling lovable and feeling capable.”

- Jack Canfield

Child Learning Advocate

With an increased number of homeschooling families and students distance learning, more parents are witnessing their childrens' struggles first-hand and are seeking answers about how to fix them. Unfortunately, the school system isn't always equipped to help. Don't worry, your child has you to stand up for them. You can prevent or even bridge a learning gap through the resources I can provide you with. As your reading expert and learning advocate, I'm on your side to arm you with the right tools and give you the boost of confidence, even on those days when your own voice shakes.

When skills are taught in a fun, meaningful and efficient way, all children love to learn. Give your child the boost they need to master their fundamental reading skills and discover a love of learning.

No one knows your child better than you do — not even their teacher.

Boost Your Child’s Reading Confidence

Did you know there is a "right way" and a "wrong way" to learn to read? Our brains are not wired at birth to understand reading and writing; therefore, it needs to be taught. Children learn to read best when the process is broken down into easy-to-follow (and fun) steps. To become confident readers, children must achieve proficiency in each foundational skill before progressing to the next. If one piece of the puzzle isn't mastered, a hole is left in the child's learning creating a problem that can compound over time.

With just a few minutes each day, your child can learn to read with The Young Learning Online Reading Program. As their virtual teacher, I will guide them through each of the basic skills necessary to build a strong reading foundation. These videos can be played at any time and are even entertaining enough to keep your children engaged while you're taking care of something else on your to-do list. With the right tools, your child can learn to read fluently and with confidence.
