VIEWING YOUR STRUGGLE AS A STRENGTH

READING BLOWS!

I thought, I’m quoting Doug from The King of Queens, that 

Reading comprehension was difficult for me, which made textbooks especially difficult.  I had a special dislike for history textbooks. My son and I both shared similar struggles.  I homeschooled him.  I discovered a way that helped us both. 

We would read out loud to each other, use audiobooks, write summaries, use Quizlet, flashcards, and jingles, among other things.  

I was wrong about reading!

ENTER SUPER TEACHER!

READING DOES NOT BLOW!

My son’s and my favorite subject now is history!

In the summers between the homeschool academic years, I challenged myself with reading classic literature on my own.  By taking a class, having a schedule, and making a financial investment, I was able to stay on course and complete several great works of literature.

THERE IS A BETTER WAY!

The Academy Way is an amazing school that helps struggling learners read and find their greatness. 
We have at most a 4-1 student-teacher ratio.  I wish my son & I had this when we were little! 

I, personally, have grown as a teacher by working for The Academy by understanding children with learning differences better.

I want to urge parents not to wait to get help for their children who struggle with reading!

Now I must go back to my book!
