Amazing Reading Progress with Prescription for Reading Success
Mrs. Nancy Meacham-Cole espoused her teaching credentials and tutoring success with a particular school district in order to get on their summer tutoring list.
“Oh, no, our tutors aren't supposed to teach the children anything. They are simply to maintain the skills that the child already has learned over the summer,” the Chapter I Reading Specialist exclaimed.
“Wouldn't it be in the best interest of the students, their parents, and the school district to make the children the best they can be?” Mrs. Cole queried.
“If you did that, it would make our teachers look bad,” responded the Reading Specialist.
Concerned with the political nature of educational manipulation, Nancy Meacham-Cole, sole proprietor of Corrective Reading Institute and a certified reading specialist since 1972, is fighting back with an affordable way for all parents and teachers to remove obstacles to their student's learning success.
Corrective Reading Institute is pleased to announce its almost free ($.99) one hundred twenty-four page diagnostic test battery complete with an answer key for teachers and parent teachers. “Prescription for Reading Success”, as this test battery is called, is immediately downloadable by clicking on the first green link below.
The test battery includes diagnostic testing in the areas of auditory discrimination, phonics, spelling, sight words, syllabication skills, reading accuracy, and reading comprehension for grades 1-12.
If the tests demonstrate below grade level performance in any area, the teacher/parent teacher will be guided to the proper remedial materials available at Corrective Reading Institute's web site.
Private tutoring using the plan outlined in Prescription for Reading Success results in an average improvement of 3.5 years within 12 weeks of biweekly instruction with daily homework. Small groups of between 8 and 14 students have an average improvement of 2 years within 7 months of daily instruction five days a week for twenty minutes.
Normally $200 for the diagnosis alone, the downloadable version, Product 01, is available for almost FREE by clicking the green link just below. (The Shippable Version, Product S01, is available for $39.99. The entire kit, Shippable Product S01A, includes Product S01 and the most frequently used flash cards Phonograms 1-73, Dolch "Sight" Words, Phrase Flash Cards, the Victory Drill Book and a notebook for practicing phonograms and spelling words. It is on sale for $129.00.

These increase fluency as does also the hardbound Victory Drill Book, which has pages of words using one or more phonograms that your student is studying. A notebook for writing each phonogram or spelling word six times a session completes the kit.

Kindergartener Aiden reads the Phonogram Cards
Why should you use this program? It works! Averaging the results of forty-three years of private tutoring, my pupils have achieved 3.5 years of reading improvement in just twelve weeks of biweekly one hour lessons, with daily homework drills.
Where I organized a program for 72 public elementary school students, the average student improved more than two years in just seven months. I worked with them in small groups ranging from seven to thirteen students for twenty minutes daily. Most of the students did no homework.
A group of about twenty-five reluctant male learners at a public high school also worked with my program. I came in once a week to leave instructions for the volunteers to follow as much as possible when they saw them (sometimes the boys or the volunteers didn't show). During the six months of this special program with at-risk boys, the average improvement was more than one year in reading accuracy and comprehension.
