What Parents & Teachers Say About Us

Sarah Smith, Homeschool Mom, NH

“My son is 7 and has been struggling to learn to read. I took your CVC SuperDeck and played Go Fish, Bingo, and Crazy 8s with him for the first time today. Initially, he was dubious and he struggled to read the words, but halfway through the first round of Go Fish, he was reading all the words without thinking about it. By the end of the first game, his eyes were sparkling, he was crowing about winning, and he begged to play again. We played and played until I had to leave to take care of the baby. Later that day, he remarked to someone casually, “Yeah, well, I can read.” I had NEVER heard him say that. He’s never believed it before. Today was the first day in two years that he didn’t fight me about working on reading – because it’s games and he’s planning on winning. Thank you SO much”

DB, Westchester County Public School District

“Just ordered your cards. I love them!!! So do my students!!! . . . Sandy’s decoding is definitely improving. She is skipping and guessing less and really thinking about how to break up the words, which is great! I think all of my students would benefit from your cards. They are all really enjoying them! I’m definitely a big fan!!”

Kathy Farrell

Today my daughter received her SAT scores.  Her total score increased almost 200 points!  The strategies and techniques reviewed in (your) course proved to be extremely effective.  The confidence and preparation you gave her proved to be the difference.

“Finally, an engaging reading program that’s so much fun that kids are motivated to read.”

This book (Why Bad Grades Happen to Good Kids) helps us teacher to revisit the challenges the students of the 21st century face. The author makes it so practical. It leaves an urgency to revamp our methodology of teaching.

Reading tutor, Meredith Lippman

“What I love most about what I’ve seen so far is how excited my student is about the games. Your philosophy about students having fun while learning is a breath of fresh air.”

Michele Renne

Our daughter had been tested years ago by Dr. Linda Silbert, had regular weekly tutoring sessions and comes highly recommended. She is extremely knowledgeable and her gentle and kind demeanor makes her very effective. In addition, she utilizes a unique program to reinforce skills. So glad that we found Strong Learning.

Jessica Rossi

We found Dr. Linda Silbert many years ago for my son who was having trouble reading. She tested him and discovered it was anxiety that was holding him back and not a learning disability. The constant testing and pulling him out of the classroom in first grade was having a devastating effect on his self-esteem…

Kristen Sullivan

I cannot say enough about Dr. Linda Silbert. I feel sometimes it’s not just about the academic component, but the connection she had with my son. My son really connected with her, the anxiety he was feeling in the classroom lifted a little. She spent a lot of time with him, and she really gave…

Dr Linda Silbert’s Tiger Tuesday Reading Program really helped my son. It made learning fun for him!

Wendy G

My daughter was tested and tutored by Dr Linda Silbert and Dr. Alvin Silbert from third grade through college. In addition, the Silbert’s have tested and tutored several of my grandchildren. As a teacher and reading specialist, I could not ask for two more outstanding professionals and educators to work with my family. They give 500%…
