Hope Offered. Lives Changed.

Ever wonder if your help really makes a difference?

Following is an actual letter from a current student's parents.

This is Ariah (pictured above), age 10. She is dyslexic. She has struggled with reading for years.

She has called herself stupid, dumb, and unable to learn. She felt hopeless, and her father and I cried because we couldn't fix this for her. We prayed for something or someone to come and help.

Enter Tutor Eau Claire and Laura Rogers (
Morning Clinic Director). After one session at TEC, Ariah had confidence and hope in the future! She is proud of where she is.

I have cried tears of joy watching her read signs, books, and texts on my phone. Hope is a beautiful thing and worth every penny we have spent on Reading Clinic. The staff there is unbelievably amazing. Ariah gets so excited every Tuesday and Thursday! We are permanent fans!!

For Ariah, and countless others, the Reading & Dyslexia Resource Center is a long-awaited answer to prayer.  The services we offer are not only effective, but thanks to the many who support our work - intervention is also affordable and accessible.

What we do makes a difference to Ariah and the up to 20% of students who struggle to learn to read.  With your help, we will continue to work until all students have access to appropriate education.  

Thank you for joining us in this important work of reaching struggling readers and restoring hope!

Partnership with Girl Scouts' Daisy Power Project Expands in Third Year

Each fall and spring of the past three years, representatives of the Reading & Dyslexia Resource Center have visited Girl Scout meetings throughout the Midlands.  With funds from a grant through the United Way, Girl Scouts' Mountains to Midlands has contracted with Tutor Eau Claire to provide reading assessments and parent training for their Daisy Literacy Power Project which focuses on increasing reading skills in Kindergarten and First Grade Scouts.

"Through this partnership, we screened about 50 girls the first year and approximately 80 girls last year.  This year, nearly 200 girls will be screened for early identification of reading struggles and re-assessed in the Spring for progress monitoring", said TEC Founder/Director, Tracey Ely.  Each girl's parent receives a summary report for their child's scores to help them identify specific areas of strength or concern. Troop Leaders and parents also participate in "Helpful Hints for Reading" workshops led by Tutor Eau Claire staff.

If you are interested in helping administer assessments, contact us at tutorec.info@gmail.com or click the button below.

Last year, more than 30,000 organizations in 68 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday. Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities.

We invite you to join the movement and to help 'get out the give' this December 1st. Join us on-site as we collect food for Food for the Soul Community Food Pantry which is co-located with our center at 628 Muller Avenue in Columbia.  Make a donation to your favorite charity. Smile at someone on the street.

There are many ways to get involved in #GivingTuesday. We encourage you to join the movement!  Together we make the world a better place!
