What People Are Saying

"She was very discouraged about her reading and feeling like she wasn't very smart because of it. Now I see her attitude has completely changed and she is [attempting] reading independently more often. Also, I have seen improvement after just one month with her tutor. "

"… we are able to work from home and there is flexibility to when she does her daily practice. Plus the games are very enjoyable."

“Thank you for checking in. [My child] has made great progress. He’s gone from stumbling through a simple sentence to reading by himself at bedtime and reading Scripture in front of the congregation at church. So grateful for this online program!”

“… I have to tell you, I had [my son]’s end of year IEP meeting yesterday. Here is a quote from the committee I met with:

‘In January [name redacted] was reading at the beginning of 2nd grade level, now he is reading at the end of 4th grade level. We’ve never seen such a huge jump in progress in that short of time. That tutor [Laura Sargent] you have is a miracle worker!’

I couldn’t agree more! Thank you so much for all your help with him, it’s truly amazing the progress he made in reading.”

“I just wanted to let you know that after only 2 weeks of following your online program my child is making jaw-dropping progress. She just spelled 50 basic words with near perfect accuracy and is reading SO much better. Thank you so much. We were worried and slogging through material with little progress on our own…wondering what was wrong. Also, she is not mixing up her letters near as much and quickly deciphering words that used to leave her tongue-tied when we would go through them quickly. I am so relieved and truly grateful. And the orator has a lovely, lovely voice.”

“I did some research and found Lexercise… [I] knew there was a trial period, so what did I have to lose?

We’re very excited that we’ve done it. He started out on a Kindergarten level… and now he’s reading at a 2nd grade level… it’s amazing… we’re so excited!

I have seen that he has such a confidence now. Before, he didn’t really want to read… now that he does have a confidence of reading [he] actually wants to read.”

“I have to tell you that your product has literally saved my son’s academic and social-emotional development from the ruin of our public school system… I don’t know where we would be today without it.”

“I simply cannot thank you all enough for your amazing program. Had it not been for you, my daughter would most likely still be crying in frustration as she desperately tried to read. It was horrible to watch as a parent…I felt so helpless. Now, seeing her read effortlessly is such a relief. Thank you all for the amazing work you do.

I was also very impressed with how quickly she improved. We were not even in the program a full year and she went from reading at a preschool level to 2nd grade level. Our instructor, Laura, greatly encouraged and uplifted my daughter through each step of the process. She has blossomed into a confident reader.”

“[My son] went from a 1 (lowest score possible) on his end of the year testing in 3rd grade to a 4 (5 being the highest possible score) in 4th grade. Thank you so much for all you did for him! I will forever be grateful!”

“I cannot say enough good things about Lexercise and the reading therapy that you have provided to [my son]. If it wasn’t for Lexercise we would still really be struggling. We do not live in an area where structured reading therapy is available or even known about much. The way Lexercise works has really been such a blessing for us. It has been well worth the time and the cost… SO thank you, thank you, thank you!”

“I was skeptical to start Lexercise. The cost was high we than other programs and I was not sure if it was going to be a waste of time. I am glad to say that I was proven wrong. In six months, [name redacted] Lexile score went up 300 points. What was even more impressive is that during the six months, we moved from Germany to the United States. Our therapist was flexible and the lexercise platform made it easy to do the work from anywhere at anytime. I would recommend this program for any child struggling with reading.”

“I just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for Lindsey [Blackburn]. Since starting her work with Lindsey and Lexercise name redacted has made enormous gains in her ability to read, spell, handwriting, organization, and approach to words. It’s been amazing from a purely academic standpoint.

However what I am the most thankful for is Lindsey’s approach to name redacted. She just “gets” her and is so able to inspire and motivate name redacted to keep  doing the hard stuff and reading has been so hard for her. She hated it. Lindsey is a gifted, talented educator and we feel so lucky to have found her.

… She says her favorite school subject is reading. That made me cry… Thanks for all the hard work you all do at Lexercise it makes such a difference.”

“My son worked throughout the years with multiple tutors before we found the Lexercise program. The key reasons that encouraged us to try this program were the flexibility in schedule, the daily reinforcement through the online games and the guarantee that he would improve one grade level in two months or his third month was free. My son had limited success with tutors in the past and was 4 years behind grade level in reading when he began working with Tori. Within a month, I noticed he was more confident and was not complaining about school reading assignments. His teachers commented that he would now volunteer to read aloud in class.

He is typically anxious at the end of the school year when he takes the end of year testing.
The icing on the cake for me happened when I asked him how his reading and spelling testing went and he said, ‘It went pretty well. Tori has helped me a lot.’ He went on to tell me in his own words how her methodology had translated into success in a concrete way.

We are now integrating a targeted writing piece into his work with Tori. It is obvious to both my son and I that she has the background and experience to help. We feel lucky to have found Lexercise.”

Rebekah Van Der Hengst

“We have experienced great success, her reading has drastically improved…I’ve seen her improve rapidly compared to any other method I’ve tried…She is now reading for fun!”

“My kids just took the entrance exams to get into a private school and passed on grade level! This is a real accomplishment! The kids really liked working with their teacher and played their games with no arguments every single day, even on holidays, without complaint. I’m grateful for the therapy and believe it was entirely worth the investment of time and money.”

“I am Speech-Language Pathologist…I know the importance of providing the right remediation. With Lexercise, for the first time, we were able to address our son’s specific reading needs and as a result his reading skills have greatly improved.  Even more important to us though, his self-confidence and self-esteem have improved.”

“The progress my son has made in one year has, in my opinion, been miraculous! Tori is a spectacular reading therapist.”

“Our family is currently doing Lexercise with our 7 year old dyslexic son. He is doing well and loves it. We [meet for therapy] at home once per week online with my laptop and a webcam. Our son then has prescriptive Lexercise games to do daily. I also have lesson material sent to me via email to work with him as well. Our 18 year old eldest son is dyslexic as well. Years ago we tutored with Sandie Barrie-Blackley the Founder of Lexercise in her private practice. She is a great [therapist] and my son did excellent. We loaded our children in the car and drove to the appointment and waited while our son tutored.

Fast forward to today – would I choose to drive to a tutor lesson or Lexercise in the comfort of my home? I love having tutoring in my home and not having to travel. Sandie was a great tutor, but I enjoy Lexercise at home and am thankful she had the vision to create it.”
