The Laureate program is best suited for children aged 3–7. During one-on-one sessions, tutors work directly with kids, using Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons as their primary foundational text. Tutors also use a positive-reinforcement system—children color in one star for good work, and five stars colored in yields a prize from the prize box. Classes meet on Saturdays and Sundays.
Laureate Letters Tutoring
Whether guiding youths as a camp counselor or working with children at Yosemite National Park, Laureate Letters Tutoring’s founder, Sarah Steele, has always had a passion for supporting kids. When her own child began to take an interest in reading, Steele jumped at the chance to introduce him to the direct-instruction model, which is the same program she and the instructors now use at Laureate Letters. During sessions, instructors follow the text and steps in the book Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons, using positive reinforcement to reward good work. Steele and her staff also work with parents to help them perpetuate the progress at home, ensuring kids establish a solid literary foundation and might one day grow up to be the first person to read on the moon.
