    Dr Meg and her staff have been life changers for our family. I became a new addition to a family with a child with dislexia. It wasn’t until I stepped in to help with scholastics; I noticed that he was struggling; very emotional and not able to read directions on the back of a medicine bottle. Dr Meg, JoEllen and Mary worked round the clock to help us assess his needs; diagnose the unique learning difference that he has and map out a plan to help us navigate through the tutoring. Our son LOVES his tutor and actually looks forward to his sessions with her! His grades for this semester were all a,b and c which is the first time ever in his 7 years of school!

    My daughter loves her reading tutor and went from being a non-reader to 2nd grade level in a few months.

    Be Alright Tutoring has relieved my anxiety tremendously. When my son’s kindergarten teacher told us that he wasn’t reading on grade level; I panicked and began to search for a tutor. I talked with Dr. Meg and she assigned my son Kristine as his tutor. Kristine is absolutely the best! She assured me that she will try to get him where he needs to be; and she has done it. My son has now made it to the 1st grade and I have witness how my son has learned so much. He is reading and sounding out words. He even asks questions; (ex. Why don’t we hear the ‘W’ is the word wholesale?) I don’t know if I was impressed about the question itself or the fact he read the word wholesale. I am forever grateful to Be Alright Tutoring! My son loves tutoring with Kristine.

    Meg has been tutoring my homeschooled son for a year now and since then, he’s learned to read, write and comprehend stories. He loves his time with her and has not once complained about lesson time. Highly recommended!

    Dr. Meg has been working with my daughter for several months now. Our experience has been amazing. She is great at what she does and my daughter loves working with her. My daughter struggled with reading, reading comprehension, and was below her grade level prior to working with Dr. Meg. She has made tremendous improvements academically since working with her. She is reading above her grade level currently and continues to excel. I would highly recommend working with her.

    It was so hard to watch my son struggle with reading. I could see him getting frustrated, and even losing interest. We decided to start working with Meg when we were all out of ideas. Meg was comforting and understanding. My son has loved working with his tutor CaMaye from the very start. He never gives me a hard time about attending his lessons. He has sessions twice a week, and is now reading close to grade level less than 5 months later. We could not be happier or more grateful.

    Lorrina W.

    My son gained the needed confidence to enjoy the process of learning to read, write, and better communicate. The tutoring not only improved his educational endeavours but also helped him better enjoy communicating amongst his peers in the computer gaming world. His confidence gained is invaluable. Thank you so much Dr. Meg for being so patient and encouraging for my sweet boy.

    What a life changing experience for my child and myself.

    Hired February 2020: I wanted to wait awhile before I wrote this review so I can give a fair review

    But I’m overly happy. I can’t express how much my son has progressed since he’s been tutoring with CaMaye. She immediately recognized his weaknesses and began tackling those issue and helping boost his confidence which was a plus because he had big confidence issue with his response.

    He’s now able to put words together and actively reading for his grade level. Now that he has to do remote learning his teacher is quite surprised and see’s the progress he has made. Again, I can not express how beneficial his tutoring has been for him. I definitely recommend this company. You will not be disappointed.

    Thank you guys so much!

    Dr. Meg and an excellent team! Melissa, her tutor, is the first person to get my son involved in learning to read. With autism and ADHD complicating the reason process, Melissa is extraordinarily patient and kind. She knows how to keep J focused and push him past his comfort zone. This is a fantastic company!

    Although, we didn't receive tutoring services at this time-due to scheduling; however Dr. Meg was very responsive and professional. I look forward to working with her and her team in the future.

    I needed one composite point on the ACT to get into Northwestern or Princeton. I had 10 tutoring sessions with meg specifically working on reading and English before the September 2019 ACT. My English score went up 4 points from my last ACT score raising my composite score to above what I needed. Meg was very nice, professional and understanding of my expectations. I would definitely recommend her if you need help on the ACT or SAT.

    Barbara C.

    I am very thankful to have found Meg. She has met with my grandson twice and he has told me he feels she is helping him get back on track. She communicates with him at his level, is very professional and keeps me informed. It is obvious she loves what she does.

    We have a 6-year old who is having trouble reading. We were hesitant to hire a virtual tutor, but Meg has really made the experience great for our child. She has been asking to read more and more and we look forward to seeing how she progresses. Even our 3 year old is asking for her own reading buddy!

Building Tutoring Success Stories

We create custom learning plans developed and implemented online, at your convenience. Sage Reading’s credentialed tutors assess and create individualized reading plans. Our goal is to help students to read at grade level and build their academic confidence.

Sage Reading can assess underlying problems interfering with reading. Our team of tutors will gently encourage your child to develop a lifelong love of reading as they build confidence in their abilities.

Why Sage Reading?

Our simple 3 step process:

We assess what problems your child may face – are they lacking phonetic awareness, transposing letters, or struggling with attention issues?

Then we create a custom study plan that includes in-session lessons and homework designed to engage students and keep them progressing.

As we carry out the study plan, we make sure that our students are improving on all academic fronts. If they aren’t, we reconfigure the plan with the parent’s input.

We want to provide the best supplementary education to your child’s schooling available. Our affordable online tutoring puts students first. It is our goal, no matter what the situation, to drive results for their future.

In general, for each year a child is behind in their reading it will take a year of intervention to catch them up.  Every child is different and learns at their own pace. Our initial focus is to re-build confidence and reduce the stress and anxiety around reading.

Each session is 65.00 and intervention based.  Each session is individually prepared in advance by the tutor.  No materials are needed by the student.

Yes we can assess your child’s current academic levels.  We begin all of our tutoring by first doing an overall assessment of each student.  We then meet with each family to discuss the assessment results and introduce their assigned tutor.

Yes. We will be able to provide detailed feedback to you about any concerns about learning disabilities and suggest how to get further accommodations and assistance for your child.

Yes we can help you.  Our tutoring is intervention based and meant to catch your child up in their learning.  We set very clear goals with each family to ensure your child’s learning success.

Our tutors are certified teachers with special endorsements in reading and special education.  Many of our tutors are also parents of children that have had learning struggles just like your child.

I have been working with struggling learners for over 25 years both as a professional and a parent.  I know how critical it is to address academic concerns quickly, especially reading.  Providing a quality reading intervention tutoring program to families that have a struggling learner is my passion!

A Lifetime
Of Positive Impact

As educators and tutors we help every student reach their maximum potential in reading and comprehension. It is important for us to cultivate a love for the subject of reading. A few hours a week of tutoring can have a lifelong positive impact.
