“I think SpeedReading will be very helpful in the future with the upcoming school year and also for my SAT/ACT tests. I think it will also be very useful in college and also in general when I need to take noes-and not just any notes, but organized ones. Also, this will help me to get done with my homework quicker, allowing me to have more time to sleep. (Which is very hard when you play sports.)”–student at Olentangy Liberty HS
Thank you parents, grandparents, school counselors and coaches for sending your wonderful students to us. Thank you to all of our participants who had to get up early and work so hard to achieve these amazing results. You are why we love our jobs!
Our summer speed reading students continuously amaze themselves and their families. (We knew they could do it, but we were excited as well!). Eighty students ranging in grades from beginning 7th graders to graduating seniors–and a few adults continuing their education–took part in this summer’s six classes. The average beginning score was 240 wpm with 69% comprehension. Their average ending score was 2,399 wpm with 89% comprehension. That’s a Reading Efficiency Increase (REI) of 12.89 (1,289%)! (Reading Efficiency Increase compares the beginning speed and comprehension with the ending speed and comprehension.) We promised 3 – 5 x’s!

Our classes not only focus on increasing speed, but also emphasize strategies for increasing comprehension, recall, and retention, with study techniques for mastering and organizing information for exams, reports, and presentations. Our students get their work done faster with better results and find that they enjoy reading more. They have more confidence and skills for their ACT, SAT, OGT, AP courses, and college. They have time to participate in their sports and music, get good grades, and–as some reported as the biggest benefit–still get some sleep.
Now that summer is over, we will help teens and adults reach their education and career goals in our Columbus, Ohio weekend classes and increase the productivity of corporate, military, and government groups in our on-site classes nationwide–and one upcoming class in Bangkok! And that will be fun for us, too.
Here’s to a great fall!
