Report Card Day

Most parents dread report card day, as this parent shared:

Yesterday, report cards came out.

In the early years of elementary school, I would dread this day. My heart would sink, and I would end up in floods of tears when I opened my son’s report card. We would not talk to him about his report card. If he asked, we’d say he was doing “fine.”

Yesterday was different. I was excited as I opened his report card because I knew he was doing well in middle school. Sure enough, my hard-working son had made the high honor roll.

I immediately Facetimed him from work to let him know how proud I was of the hard work he put into this achievement.

I am also proud of the hundreds of hours he and I have worked together on the Barton System to get him to this point. We look forward to the day when we’ll finish Level 10, but that is still a couple of years away.

Tutoring him has not been easy because his dyslexia is very severe.

I am sharing this to encourage those who are just starting out tutoring their own children and finding it difficult. Hard work, persistence and dedication pay off !!!

I dread to think what our lives would be like if I had not found the Barton Reading & Spelling System.

Miracle In A Box

Grandmothers often tutor a grandchild who has dyslexia with great results — as this grandmother shared: 

The Barton Reading System is outstanding due to its systematic introduction of new sounds and skills.

The videos are well done, and between that and the excellent teaching manuals, anyone can use this system with success.

And I can’t say enough about your free support and the many free goodies on your tutor support website.

My severely dyslexic grandson went from not being able to read the word “cat” in 3rd grade to handling 7th grade quite confidently.

You have created a miracle in a box!
