After being extremely behind and having a hard time reading and focusing , we signed up our son at door of hope. It truly has been amazing and he has come so far. From not being able to read ( almost at all) to picking up books on his own and reading them with joy. It is a commitment to do many hours of tutoring but one well worth it! The confidence he has now is the best!

My son was diagnosed with dyslexia and we were told by the doctor to find a program that utilizes the Lindamood Bell method. I did a Google search and came across Door of Hope Learning Center. My son started at a 1.1 reading level which was about a year behind where he should be. He hated reading. He could not read nonsense words. He could not read books, he basically memorized the words but never could actually read them. We have been going to Door of Hope Learning Center for about two months. My son has made tremendous strides in that time. He is able to read street signs. He is able to read nonsense words. He is able to sound out words that he is unfamiliar with. His confidence in reading has increased and he is able to read books completely by himself without any help. His reading level has increased to a 1.6 in just two months. I could not say enough amazing things about the people at Door of Hope. They are dedicated, passionate, and committed to helping your child become the reader they were always meant to be. I am confident that my son will be up to grade level before the end of the school year because of the people and the program at Door of Hope Learning Center.

All three of my children came to Door of Hope at various ages. Karen is extremely gifted at what she does. If your child is struggling or even if they just need an extra bit of assistance with their reading, I would highly recommend seeing Karen. She is truly amazing and you will see improvement. It was worth it for us. I am convinced that this extra assistance early on benefits my children even today many years after Karen's help. One of the wonderful things as well about her tutoring services is not only the level of skill involved and her ability to help a child to have complete understanding, but she delivers this service with such compassion and love in her heart. I have used many tutoring services over the years, but this one will ALWAYS have a special place in my heart. They treat your kids with love. I feel that is so important when a little one is struggling. Finally, this is a business with morals, honesty, and integrity. Look no further if you're seeking help for your little one. This is the place to go.

The Door of Hope Learning Center helped my son a lot during the summer of 2019. My son struggled with his confidence and academics to meet the expectations of St. Francis Parish School. By the end of the summer, Karen Peavler and her staff gave him the tools he needed to succeed; a fundamental foundation. The Door of Hope Learning Center helped my son to build up the necessary confidence he needed to become an active participant in a learning environment. When he went back to school in August of 2019, he was ready and eager to engage; a fresh start and a beautiful new beginning. Here it is a year later (summer of 2020), and my son is now above his grade level across the board. Our family is truly grateful for Karen and her excellent, insightful staff in assisting us with giving my son the gift and building blocks of learning, as well as the confidence he needed to move forward. Our children will continue to utilize the Door of Hope Learning Center services for whatever needs they may need to help them to be better learners - no matter how big or how small the need is for additional learning guidance. Sincerely and eternally grateful, Michael and Laura Parents

From the first inquiry phone call to our last session for our youngest daughter, Karen met our needs and expectaions with flying colors. We thought it would be easy to teach our third child to read clearly and confidently but we were wrong. She had certain needs and fears that we weren't equipt to help her with and Karen was able to quickly assess the issues and jump right in. Our daughter always felt comfortable with Karen and responded well to the tutoring program that was used. Our daughter will now be entering the 5th grade this fall and is a confident reader and excels in the classroom. We are so grateful to Door of Hope Learning Center and Karen. The only thing we would change about our experience is that we wish we would've heard about Door of Hope sooner. If you're on the fence about contacting Karen, call now and get your child the help they need. You won't regret it.

Door of hope has been a blessing in my son’s life. At the age of eight and in third grade my son could not grasp the skill of reading. He was very aware of this and was starting to shut down on learning. Sending my son to school was a struggle because he knew everyday he was expected to perform a skill he simply did not have or understand- reading. My son was placed in special education classes to help with reading, in the last two years special ed has not accomplished what Door of Hope did for my son in six months. My son can now read on his own! He is sounding out words as well as compound words! I am overjoyed to see the self confidence and self esteem in my son go up! Before the pandemic hit I had another meeting with my son’s teachers! They mentioned my son now knew how to read. I pointed out it was due to Door of Hope’s wonderful work! His teachers also mentioned Ivan was more confident and stayed on task more than before. All this we owe to Door of Hope. I only wish we could have found them sooner. This program is definitely worth it! My son will continue with this program as long as he can benefit from it! Thank you Door of Hope!

My son is in special ed and has struggled with reading his entire time in school. When I found Door of Hope, he was a Sophomore in High School and was reading at a Preschool level. I didn’t know what to expect but I knew I needed to do something to help him. Finding Door of Hope was an answer to prayer and a HUGE help for my son. We did the full program with them and when he finished with them, he was reading at a 2nd grade level! In just that short amount of time they were able to boost his reading and his confidence in himself! I would highly recommend using Door of Hope because you CANNOT get this type of reading program ANYWHERE near us. This is the best tutoring facility around!

Door of Hope has meant a lot for our family. We have twins which have struggled with reading for years. It was extremely hard for me, as a homeschool mom, that I could not help them. We tried so many different reading programs and nothing worked. To watch your children struggle and not have confidence is heartbreaking. Then we found Door of Hope. It is hard to put into words what they have done for my children and our family. I watched my children blossom into readers. What is amazing is that it's not just the reading that has blossomed but they're writing and spelling as well. So if you have a struggling reader don't wait call Door of Hope today, they are amazing.

Aren't you guys spoiled to be living close to Door of Hope Learning Center. Our son attended Door of Hope recently. He was only able to attend a short time. We were simply impressed on how much he had gained in reading. Only wish he could of completed the whole program. Highly recommend Karen and her teachers to help your child to improve, excel and love reading.

When we took my son with autism to Karen most of our family thought it was pointless. At seven our family thought Grayson might never be able to read. But with weekly visits to Karen he is now reading on his own. She gave Grayson the ability to breakdown words and the tools to read with confidence. We couldn't be more thankful.
