My son is now in Level 5 of the Barton System and he's in a reading frenzy. When we were shopping at Costco, I finally had to take his book away. He said it was so good he couldn't put it down. Those were the magic words I'd hoped to hear for so many years.

After one year of tutoring, he's gone from struggling with second-grade readers to rapidly and accurately reading -- and loving -- fifth-grade books. Your system is fabulous.

Thanks to the Barton System, my fifth-grade son went from testing at a second-grade reading level to testing at a seventh-grade reading level in a year and a half.

In spelling, he's now testing at his grade level (fifth), up from a first-grade level last school year.
