At UpGrade Educational Services, we believe in educating the whole student and that every student is a unique individual with a unique approach to learning. Through our experienced educators and proven methodology, we are here to help your child tackle his or her academic challenges. Our promise to you is that we will not work with them one day longer than is needed. We want to create a foundation for your child to be able to continue thriving in the classroom independently.
Our teachers are far more than tutors; they are educators. UpGrade’s educators are current or former teachers and persons who have distinguished themselves in their field. This means that your student is receiving instruction from individuals who have been trained in the art of teaching and are well-versed in the specific subject with which your child is having difficulty. We not only know what to teach your child, we know how to teach.
Our first step is to sit down with you and your child for an initial consultation. The needs of every child are different, and initial consultations provide us the opportunity to thoroughly understand your child’s strengths and weaknesses; allowing us to customize sessions with those things in mind. This is the perfect time for you to bring any paperwork or diagnostic results from teachers or doctors. If needed, we will also perform diagnostic testing, discuss budget and suggest any further evaluation we feel may be necessary to create the correct program for your child.

Phono-Graphix is a sound-approach to language that remediates fluency of reading and helps students gain knowledge of the innate “code” of the English language. Fluency being a fundamental, foundational part of reading, this therapy is the first step to improving reading skills and habits. Reading fluency is the cornerstone to future development of reading comprehension.
