 What families are saying:

 “My 4th grader loves his BookNook tutoring sessions. His teacher is friendly, nice, and very engaging. During most of the school day, he prefers to keep his camera off, however, during his tutoring sessions his camera is on and he is actively participating. The sessions are only 30 minutes which is just the right amount of time. I was worried that more online learning would be a burden but he actually enjoys it.”

 Yamala Robinson, PGCPS Parent

“I LOVE BookNook! My son is so excited to read and learn about each book. There’s a game at the end that has questions that he is eager to answer! The sessions are the highlight of his school week! He typically does NOT like to read at all during his classes.  In fact, he struggles with reading and he will tell you that Reading is his least favorite subject.  To my surprise, he is eager to attend his BookNook tutoring sessions. He actually reminds me that it is time for him to log on.”
