Tutor Ted's Free Summer Reading Class, Session 1
Avoid COVID Learning Loss—and become a better reader—with Tutor Ted! It's free!
Join me for this FREE class designed to help students AVOID COVID LEARNING LOSS.
Reading is the #1 factor that determines your college admissions test scores.
During a typical summer, students who don't spend time reading lose a half of a grade level of reading skill. Now, what happens when "summer" extends from, oh, the end of March until August or September?
I am a firm believer in the power and value of reading. Reading makes you a better thinker. Reading gives you the opportunity to learn. Reading helps you understand how ideas are presented. Reading, literally, makes you better in every other academic subject.
I am offering this course for free simply because I believe that much in the power of reading.
One more thing about reading? It can actually be fun. Want to find that out for yourself? Sign up!

Frequently Asked Questions
Reading makes us smarter, sure, but it does a whole lot more too. It teaches us about the world around us. It introduces us to people we would never meet. It shows us perspectives we've never had. It illustrates the mysteries of life. It reveals how people thought in the past, how they think now.
To say it briefly, it's part of what makes us human.
It does not need to intimidate. It does not need to feel like a chore, either. When you're reading good, high quality material, and when your instructor invites you along for the ride, well, then it's kinda fun, actually. I'm hoping I can deliver on that for you. I'm planning on it.
So jump in! Let's have some fun together! Let's read!
Is that the nerdiest thing I've ever said? Maybe. But I don't regret a word of it.
