Virtual 1:1 Reading & Math Tutoring
It's vital to understand that students in grades K-2 are learning to read; while students
in grades 3-12 are reading to learn - understanding what they have read and gaining
new knowledge. Driven by this philosophy, our focus for Reading tutoring is as follows.


  • Grades K-2: explicit phonics, phonemic awareness, fluency, vocabulary, oral

       language development, listening and speaking

  • Grades 3-8: vocabulary, fluency, comprehension


Our grade-level focus areas encompass the five components of reading students may struggle with:

  1. Phonics

  2. Phonemic Awareness

  3. Vocabulary

  4. Comprehension

  5. Fluency

About Us
Before the pandemic, Think, Speak & Grow Academy (TSG) operated as a before and after-school care program. For safety reasons, we have temporarily closed our doors to center-based care. We anticipate reopening our center in August 2021 for the 2021-22 academic year. The reopening will be contingent upon stemming the spread of COVID-19 statewide.

However, we are excited to announce that we have adapted our focus in response to the pandemic to provide home-based and virtual support for families. Think, Speak & Grow Academy, led by Dr. Kelly Walton, who has been an educator and youth development professional for more than two decades, was conceptualized by a team of passionate K-16 educators. They possess over a century of combined experiences and recognized accomplishments. In 2017, the team identified a need in the after-school setting to provide accelerated and enhanced opportunities to help students develop the essential life skills and characteristics needed to thrive in the 21st Century. As such, “our mission is providing children with experiences and opportunities that allow them to THINK  critically,  SPEAK  confidently, and GROW exponentially.” Read more...
