kind words

"Our students showed remarkable progress and our M-STEP state reading scores jumped from 56.2 to 82.5 after only 3 months of Phonics First® Academic Advantage On-site Tutoring. I would highly recommend it to any [urban] school wishing to make significant gains in student reading ability. No school should be without it!."

Steve Christian, Assistant Principal

Fleming Elementary, Detroit, MI

"The Monday I returned from the CEC Convention I immediately started doing core words, which cannot be decoded using "spelling on the arm". I was totally amazed! ... I will stay in touch and keep you apprised of the successes we have!"

Kris Kenna, Academic Support Teacher

Central Manor Elementary

"The most common feedback we received is that teachers wished that they have been trained by Brainspring before starting their educational journey."

Erica Keen, K-12 District Dyslexia Coordinator

Arkansas Virtual Academy

"Not only did our students continue to advance in their reading skills as evidenced by a full year’s growth, but 39% of our students made more than one year’s progress in reading."

Jeanine Cyrwus, Director of Outreach & Literacy

Oakwood School

"Feedback from teachers after implementation has been very positive. Since switching to Phonics First, teachers felt like their instruction has been better and they have seen student growth."

Tracy Hinty, Supervision of Federal Programs

Rockbridge County Public Schools

"Thank you for creating such an excellent and diligent phonics program. If schools and families implemented this program to children at a young age, there would not be such a reading epidemic across our nation. Phonics truly is the answer!"

Trained Educator

"I wish I would have found Phonics First earlier in my teaching career. Our students across the country would be stronger readers and writers if a balanced program such as Phonics First was being implemented."

Trained Educator

"I loved this training and can’t wait to get started with my students!"

Trained Educator

"I strongly believe after completing this training that EVERY HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY TEACHER should have this!!! Our student reading success would improve if all teachers knew how to teach this material."

Trained Educator

"I learned so much. I now have complete confidence in using the program and teaching the material. I can now implement the material as it was designed. Thank you for a great week!"

Trained Educator

"I feel like I’ve learned more from this PD than any PD I’ve participated in before!"

Trained Educator

"Awesome training. It was my first exposure to Structures, and it is fabulous! I am recommending that each of our elementaries has at least one interventionist trained to use with our 5th and 6th grade struggling readers! Thank you!"

Trained Educator

"I have been hoping for this type of instruction since I have been back in the classroom! The push in many elementary schools is comprehension when children cannot write or read fluently. So excited to move forward with Phonics First! Thank you!!!"

Trained Educator

"Our trainer was amazing. She was so knowledgeable about the program and was able to share real world examples. She was also incredibly helpful with answering everyone’s specific questions."
