MaxScholar: Reading Intervention Program - MaxGuru ~ a TOS review

MaxScholar Reading Intervention Programs Review
I like to have the girls catch the reading bug at a young age. Light the fire young so to speak so I am a huge fan of reading at our house for at least 20 minutes a day.Most times it works and others, not so much. That’s why I was especially excited to be on the review for MaxScholar Reading Intervention Programs from MaxScholar.

MaxScholar is an online program that is accessible anywhere you have a good internet connection. A set of speakers or headphones is also good to have too. We received a one-year subscription to the MaxGuru program. It includes access to:

I used this with Mikayla, my rising 8th grader. She would take her laptop with her to the gym on her double training days and work on the program for at least 30 minutes during the school hours break. At first glance when I was checking up on her progress I noticed she was spending a lot of time in the MaxMusic section. I first thought it was listening to music and that sort of thing, but after further investigation, I saw that it was more than that! This section actually has grammar and piano sprinkled into the lessons.

I did have to tell Mikayla to visit other sections of the program also, just to balance out the learning experience, but hands down the MaxMusic was her favorite section.

Overall, I have seen improvement in Mikayla’s reading and comprehension skills from using this program just 2-3 times a week. She never complained about having to log on to the program, which is a huge plus! We will definitely be continuing to use this program through the end of our subscription.
