Lois was able to teach my child to read when the school system couldn’t.

Parent of former tutoring client

Lois Wendus, founder of Leaps in Learning, has helped my 10-year-old attain grade level in less than six months. My daughter was a year and a half behind grade level at her private school. With Lois’s expertise in being able to identify quickly how my daughter learned best, Lois designed a plan to return my daughter to grade level that was both fun and effective. My daughter went from getting only 4 out of 20 spelling words correct to 100% correct utilizing Lois’s techniques. I would highly recommend Leaps in Learning for any child who is having difficulty, and for any parent who wants his or her child to read with fluency at grade level and exceed personal educational goals.
