“I am not surprised by Michelle’s improvement during our time
together… I feel that discussing her interests and experimenting
with several books at the beginning aided in her success. We worked together
to find appropriate reading material and it paid off.”
- Quoted by University Graduate Student Tutor.
“It comes a happy morning when my tutor comes.”
- From a poem, by 3rd grade tutored child.
“I’ve decided to take her to a new school next year where she can get one-on-one help”.
- Parent of 3rd grade child after the 3rd grader had been successfully tutored for a semester by university Graduate Education student through the RITE Program.
"As a Bryan Hill 21st Century After-School teacher, I wanted to continue an endless
learning chain that the day teacher had begun in his/her classroom, thus,
I attended the RITE Reading Tutorial Professional Development Workshop
at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. ..... Shortly after I received
the training, I knew I could make a difference....Each student participating
in the Blueprint showed gains on his/her MAP test. I feel using Blueprint
for Reading Success contributed to students’ overall growth in reading,
adding excitement and encouragement."
- Esther Marshall, Bryan Hill
