What People Are Saying...
My daughter works with Reading Allowed. She loves Ms. Katie and she enjoys the tools she gives her to help her sound out and read words. I see a confidence in her each time she gets off her tutoring session. I am forever grateful for this program!
Reading Allowed Parent
I’m so grateful for the opportunity that my daughter has by joining this Reading program. I want to thank Ms Kelly, her teacher, and the whole team behind this great program that has allowed my daughter to be able to read as a normal 5th grader. She is no longer afraid and shy about reading out loud. Thank you.
Reading Allowed Parent
Reading Allowed is fantastic and has helped me find the perfect tutor for my son and has worked with me through the scheduling struggles I have come across during virtual school and returning in person etc. I appreciate Reading Allowed so much and can not praise them enough.
