Improve Your Reading Skills
We are a team of Direct Instruction specialists located in Vaughan, Ontario. We’ve taught hundreds of students the foundations of reading and comprehension for over a decade. Our Reading Mastery, Corrective Decoding and Corrective Comprehension classes are available 1:1 both in person and online.
Our team of skilled and empathetic tutors have taught hundreds of struggling students to break through the reading code and become great readers. At times, students in grade three and up are not reading fluently yet. There is a number of reasons to that, such as lack of attention and behavioural difficulties, learning disabilities, and generally, a limited ability to grasp a whole-word approach to reading.
Our team of Direct Instruction tutors remediates comprehension, too. We have a solid understanding of why your child might seem like a solid reader, yet has limited comprehension. We are also experts in how to intervene efficiently and to solidify your child’s comprehension skills.

Reading Mastery (K- to grade 5)
Reading Mastery teaches children initial word attack skills, using a very unorthodox, special orthography approach. In fact, students are not taught letter-sound correspondence up until later lessons in the program, when they have already become quite fluent readers. Why is that? Is it not supposed to confuse the young reader? It happens that if a parent is already looking into a different learning approach to reading, the child might already be confused. While some children will learn to read painlessly and effortlessly using a whole word approach, some others might need an extra push.
After a decade of teaching children how to break through the reading code successfully, our team is sure to say that this is the best reading method ever.
During our initial assessment, we share with the parents the objective and the approach of this reading program.
Corrective Reading (grades 3 and up)
RWT is located in Vaughan, Ontario and is ready to serve the needs of a child in an older grade who is not a fluent reader yet. They might enjoy being read to, but have never truly learned the foundations of reading. They might be facing some inner obstacles, such as a specific learning disability, or they may be drowning because they were never exposed to great instruction.
Many children who have been through levels B1, B2 and C of the Corrective Reading program find reading easy and enjoyable. Unlike many other approaches, Corrective Reading is a part of the Direct Instruction method and backed up by decades of research.
Our tutors have taught Corrective Readings to hundreds of students successfully, helping them overcome the fear of reading.
Corrective Comprehension (grades 3 and up)
Some children are fluent oral readers. They read without a flinch, often surpassing their peers in the level of reading difficulty. Yet, they have trouble answering seemingly easy questions. In fact, they might not understand much of what they read.
Designed for students with a language learning disability, autism, and ELL learners, Corrective Comprehension teaches children (and adults) to connect the dots. Each lesson presents only 15% of new material and allows repetition until full mastery of the concepts. Children are taught both abstract and practical concepts. Grasp is ensured through mastery tests of the material.
