According to U.S. Department of Education, “only 35 percent of the nation’s fourth-graders performed at or above the proficient achievement level”.(National Assessment of Educational Progress 2015) This means that 65 percent of students are not reading on grade level. Reading Coach DMV was created to increase the Nation’s percentage, one child at a time. We work with Pre-Kindergarten to 5th-grade students. We believe proficient reading transforms lives and empowers students and communities.
