The R.I.S.E. for Literacy Reading Comprehension Program

Dedicated to doing intentional good works in education and closing learning gaps for students.

R.I.S.E. (Reimagining Individualized Student Education) for Literacy is a reading comprehension program that supplements the reading skills and standards taught in the American classroom.

Our program is tailored for 1:1 student support, and designed to help a student reading below grade level strengthen in ability and close comprehension gaps.

We work hard to choose books for our program that highlight diverse lived perspectives and protagonists in order to layer learning with cultural competence and love for humanity for both the student and the tutor.


Here’s what tutors have to say about working with our R.I.S.E. curriculum.

“I like the engaging questions corresponding to the books being read as well as the practical life situations explored. It has been thought-provoking for the kids!”

Josh, Tutor Partner

“My biggest win this year was learning more about my student. The New Year’s goal-setting from the Middle School Curriculum was fun and played a big part in getting to know them.”

Mary, Tutor Partner

“The little videos at the beginning help to engage the students. They bring variety for students who learn differently or are more visual.”

Renita, Tutor Partner

“The curriculum allows us to teach a lesson even when the children don’t bring homework.”

Renee, Tutor Partner

“The reading comprehension goals within the lessons are being tied back to their personal lives.”

William, Tutor Partner

Continued Reading Curriculum Development

Our elementary (1st—3rd grade) and intermediate (4th—6th grade) curriculums cycle through three years of content, keeping students from repeating the same lessons year after year. 

We continue to update each cycle of the curriculum each year to better serve the students and tutors in their goals to increase reading comprehension.

Add a Decoding Solution for Early Readers

We desire to add an early-reader tier to our curriculum that supports Prek – 1st grade students who are learning phonics and are beginner readers.

Add a Decoding Solution for Older Students

Sometimes older students still need help learning phonics and decoding, but are embarrased to use books and resources used with younger children. We desire to create decoding support that considers the the unique needs of older children.

Add Summer Enrichment

Create a 6-week summer enrichment curriculum for tutors to use that improves retention for students and minimize the “summer slide” – loss of learning that’s common during summer breaks.

We can do this together.

Our R.I.S.E. (Reimagining Individualized Student Education) for Literacy Program is currently supporting tutoring initiatives in America in their work with elementary school children.

Our current goal is to create a 6-week summer enrichment and retention program as we partner with tutors, schools, and parents in their work to overcome learning deficits caused by the COVID-19 pandemic or other barriers to education experienced by marginalized students.
