Our team is dedicated to making our vision a reality, always going above and beyond to ensure no child is left to slip through the cracks.

Early Literacy Interventionists

The heart and soul of our high impact tutoring program is our team of Early Learning Interventionists (“ELIs”). Our ELIs are selected for their passion to teach all students to read and undergo a rigorous training program on phonics and literacy instruction. Our ELIs work with students 1:1 in the classroom to build a strong phonics foundation and improve student reading fluency.
