How we are making it better

  • Literacy

    Building a foundation for academic success through small group, individualized tutorials for struggling readers.

  • Leadership

    Instilling leadership skills is an integral part of all Making It Better programs, giving children the ability to resist the negative influences that are so common today.

  • Life Skills

    Developing self-management and positive relationship skills and learning to express feelings appropriately is infused into every program; enabling children to grow into successful, contributing members of society.

  • “I’ve already seen so much progress with these students and wish that ALL  my students could be a part of the Reading Intervention program!”

Real Stories. Real People.

Kemon came to our program as a little guy who was frequently angry and “in trouble” in his classroom. Although he knew his uppercase letters, he scored very poorly on recognizing letter sounds, had poor listening comprehension skills and was unable to read a book.

After working closely with Kemon, he showed great progress both academically and socially. His anger dissipated, he began enjoying tutorials, and he was able to read a Kindergarten level book!

“Kemon told me stories every day which helped me learn about him. His stories created a renewed understanding of the difficult lives some of the kids we serve live. Getting to know Kemon reminded me that, even working with our students for a short period of time, brings them happiness and teaches them life skills, as we develop their literacy skills,” said Kemon’s tutor, Anju Varadhachary.
