TinyIvy Phonetics System (TIPS™) is effective in teaching students how to learn to read, particularly for those students who have struggled to make significant progress with other system. Regardless of the diagnosis, the TIPS™ tutoring program helps children that might need extra assistance with reading because of the challenges that come with traditional methods of learning.
A Better Way to Learn to Read
Based on the phonics system seen in China and Israel, TIPS™ makes learning how to read much easier by creating perfect, regular letter-sound correspondence.
This reduces the cognitive load required to make progress in early reading. It makes decoding easy, so that your child can spend more time thinking about the story itself.
Our tutoring program can help your child make these connections and help them reach their full potential.
Proven Progress at Lightning Speeds
Data from our Spring 2021 Centreville Layton case study shows that students using TIPS™ saw an improvement in their literacy skills with a 58% increase in word reading, 141% increase in letter sounds, and 75% increase in nonword reading.
When reading with TIPS, students were able to increase their reading level from Pre-K/Kindergarten levels to 2nd Grade reading levels in a single semester.

Your child’s education is our top priority. We strive to find highly-skilled and motivated individuals who are passionate about teaching and have a love for helping others.
