Testimonies Of Reading Improvement

Read Right Online Tutoring has many fans! Consider what a few of our students, parents and educators say. At Read Right, our online tutors get rapid results!

It is amazing that our employees achieved so much so quickly. You promised and you delivered in terms of the speed to go from one reading level to another. Read Right has exceeded what we expected.

— Tim Thomas, Vice President for Quality Assurance & Regulatory Affairs, Deknetal, Falls River, MA — 

I started as a ‘red’ level (first grade) reader and it would take me an hour and half to read three or four pages in one book. I plan to go back to school and get my diploma. This is one of the best things that has ever happened to me, and I’m so thankful.

Suggestions from employees participating in the Continuous Improvement Institute and the Read Right program saved $760,000 in one year and another $1.3 million from new suggestions during the second year. That’s $2 million in savings total. Those are real numbers. They’re documented; they’re audited. For every $1 we spent on Read Right, we got $5 back.We couldn't have done it without the Read Right program. Improvement never stops after people have the skills.

— Robert Pelletier, Vice President, Manufacturing, Deknatel — 

Employees participating in Read Right have reported re-work is decreasing and productivity is increasing due to their improved reading skills.

Something happened to the people that went to the Read Right reading program that motivated them. They paid attention to detail because they could read better. Our safety record was the most improved in all of the Weyerhaeuser Canada operations the year we brought in Read Right.

The amazing thing is the Korbel team has cut safety costs 93% since moving to a Behavior Based Safety Process. The lost time incident rate at our Korbel Sawmill has been 0.00 for four consecutive years. If I were to set up a Behavior Based Safety Process in a new plant, I would go through the same sequence again. I would solve the reading and English communication problems first, using Read Right because of the fast results. Then I would move into the safety process work and the training required to implement it. People have to have the skills first.

— Randy Robertson, Employee Development Administrator, Simpson Korbel Sawmill, Korbel, CA — 

It was an absolute pleasure to hear one of the Read Right pupils present a written briefing to the Agri-products Supply Chain Project team and his peer group this week. His written report, presentation style, ability to read the report without difficulty, and the ability of his audience to follow, assimilate, and understand his points and position taken has improved 1,000 fold. The credit for this has to go to the Read Right program.
