LearnUp is about more than phonics - It’s about reading.

LearnUp Centers teaches struggling readers, with or without a diagnosis of dyslexia, to read at grade level and beyond. In about 1/2 the time of most other programs.

LearnUp uses a multidisciplinary structured phonics curriculum with proprietary chapter books so students can practice their new reading concepts within a storybook environment. A typical lesson includes work on sounds, syllables, words, reading, comprehension, and writing in a scope and sequence that’s tailored to each reader.

We offer:

  1. One on one tutoring (now via Zoom).
  2. Training for teachers, specialists, and parents on how to teach reading to all emerging readers.
  3. One for one scholarship and sliding scale financial aid to deserving students and educators.

Hi, I’m Steve Tattum.

LearnUp Centers Reading Director

I have trained educators and taught kids to read for over 40 years. In our courses, you will learn everything I have learned about how to teach reading and reading comprehension to all types and levels of reading, including those who have or have not been diagnosed with dyslexia or other learning differences.

"Thanks again for giving Eli a great base to grow from as a reader. We could not be more pleased with the progress he has made."

Watch Lyuba transform his reading.

As a 3rd grader, Lyuba was reading at below Kindergarten first grade level. In less than 4 months of tutoring at LearnUp, Lyuba went from non-reader to reading above the 3rd grade level.
