The Gold Standard of Phonics Programs

The Foolproof Phonics Program

for Peer-to-Peer Tutoring

Community centers or volunteer organizations operating (or wishing to start) an education program constantly search for ways and means to maximize their resources, yet produce great benefit to their community.

Smart Way Reading offers a totally unique, and highly successful, educational tool to accomplish this task: Peer-to-Peer Tutoring.

Although the Smart Way methodology follows Orton-Gillingham principles and fully embraces the findings of the National Reading Panel to teach reading skills, the program was created to be extremely easy to use while producing maximum results.  The outcome is nothing short of remarkable.

Student learning with phonics
Smart Way Reading is a systematic and explicit, fully-scripted, phonics educational program.

This means, for example, that a 5th or 6th grade student who is fairly proficient in reading is able to successfully tutor a younger peer.  The outcome will show an increased reading ability for the younger pupil, as well as the older coach benefiting through a refreshing of phonics methodologies and rules or, perhaps, even filling in some blanks he or she may have been experiencing.  This makes the Smart Way foolproof phonics program a win-win for everyone involved.
