Home Study Kit Testimonials

"This Home Study course was fantastic! I liked how it was recorded in a real class. Evelyn is a natural teacher. I like the applications to real life, other situations where you can apply these skills."

"I enjoyed the DVDs. Effective techniques and good reinforcement. Evelyn is easy to understand and pleasant to listen to."

N. Brooks Boston, Massachusetts

"One of my biggest problems was my mind wandering. With this course my speed improved and my comprehension increased. I have used the Home Study Kit in tutoring and seen dramatic improvements with a long term client's reading speed and accuracy.  He is in junior high and has struggled with reading since grade three.  His reading skills improved almost "overnight!" This course will help me to teach study skills more effectively as I tutor and home school my own children."

Kelly L., B.Ed (Elementary Education) Calgary, Alberta

"I took this Home Study course to help me speed up my reading for the purpose of medical school interviews. Initially I feared that if I read faster, I would not be able to understand or retain what I read. Evelyn’s course changed all that! Her teaching methods are easy to understand and she puts a lot of emphasis on comprehension. Her passion for teaching is clear and she truly seems to care about helping others discover their potential. I felt that I could go at my own pace and saw improvement. I recommend her course to all my friends. I like reading so much more since I’ve increased my speed. Thank you Evelyn!"
