What We Do

Beyond Basics believes literacy is for everyone. Founded in 1999, we are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit working to eradicate illiteracy, transforming the lives of students and creating stronger communities. Our one-on-one, multisensory tutoring program helps students achieve grade-level movement in reading in an average of six weeks. In addition to our structured literacy interventions, we cultivate curiosity and encourage a love of lifelong learning with fine arts activities that expand horizons.

Interesting Info
  • Our diagnostic assessment informs an individualized reading plan delivered daily by a professional tutor.
  • Our work reflects best practice in teaching reading using a phonics-based methodology.
  • We have captured data consistently since 2008 showing students attain two grade levels of movement in reading.
