Does your child want some extra reading practice?
Let your elementary-school-age child team up with a student member of the National Honor Society.  This low-stress environment is perfect for those who want some reading-aloud practice with a friendly ear: children may respond to criticism from other students better than they would from parents or teachers.

These sessions are by appointment only, after school hours or on Saturdays.  

Call 248-887-2218 (option 4) for more information or to schedule an appointment.
