Message from the Founder:

All parents want their children to learn to read. I know I did! That’s why I taught my (now grown) children to read at home, before they started school. This early start gave each of them the confidence they needed to be good students and lifelong readers.

As a former systems engineer, I wrote software manuals that made complex systems easy to use. I knew I could develop an online program that would show you how to teach your child to read—and make it easy, too—which is how Teach Your Child to Read was born.
Too often, children miss the short window where learning to read comes naturally, but with this simple program, you can make sure your child learns to read at just the right age. Our program will help you take charge of your child’s education, but more than that, your child will always remember the special time you spend together. (You will, too!)

Since you’re the best one to decide which program is right for your family, we encourage you to take advantage of our 7-day free trial. Even after a single lesson, you’ll see how easy it is to use, and you’ll have no doubt you CAN teach your child to read. (You can watch a sample lesson here.) By step 2, your child will be sounding out short words. (Yes, it really does happen that fast!) And don’t worry, my voice will be there to guide you every step of the way.

I look forward to taking this journey together with you and your child!
Warm Regards,
Mary Follin,
Founder and Developer
