Boy wanting to learn reading and spelling with his online tutor.

“In Middle School, my daughter was getting D’s and F’s. After one year of tutoring with the Barton system she is now getting mostly A’s and some B’s! But, more importantly, you should see her new attitude. She is much happier and easier to deal with each day. Thank you, thank you!”


“I have three Barton students in my class. I see the impact of this program daily. One of these students, who has been in the program for 2 1/2 years, is even in my highest reading group. Knowing his initial skills, I am convinced he would not be there without the support of this program.”
