"We reached out to Ala Carte Learning Solutions when our daughter was struggling with reading. We were new to the area and didn't know where to start. I found Ala Carte and I was immediately given a time to go in for her assessment. After a few short months, our daughter is now reading 2 grade levels higher than when she started! We could not be happier with the progress! She is less frustrated and loves to read. She absolutely loves her teacher and she looked forward to every lesson!"
