The Basics of Academic Success that Are Never Forgotten.

from Rory Donaldson, Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT)


WELCOME TO BRAINSAREFUN – It's no secret, I'm a nut about teaching all kids to read. Reading skills lead to far brighter horizons and much better futures for us all. And the secret? It really isn't all that hard. By practicing just a few simple methods in your household or classroom, you can teach all kids to read and succeed. My new eBook How to Teach All Kids to Read and Succeed ($24.95*) shows you how.

The outcomes speak for themselves:

  • Reading skills accelerate across the board, averaging 2.1 years first 20-hours of instruction
  • Students become self-motivated
  • Parents, teachers and students experience the joy of success, continuing their educations and holding jobs with a future

Once familiar with The 3 Keys you'll be invited to explore the details of our first complete system, Learn How to Teach All Kids to Read and Succeed ($24.95*).

As a school teacher, I learned that teaching kids to read and succeed (all ages and backgrounds) really isn't that hardbut I had to learn how and where to start. I found out, and now I want everyone to find out. Everyone's future depends on it.
No matter what age, no matter which home or school curriculum, the fundamental keys always remain the same:
  • KEY #1 – Cooperation Before Instruction is the Great Mandate
  • KEY #2 – Everyone Must Learn to Read with Phonics
  • KEY #3 – Motivation Begins With Success

Step #1 creates cooperation before instruction, accelerating success for all kinds of students: gifted and talented, those who need to catch up fastdyslexic, attention-deficit, doubly-talented, smart and restless, poor study habits, students re-entering school, computer kids, youth-at-risk, athletes, English as a Second Language (ESL)… Brainsarefun is for all parents, teachers and students who need success.

Step #2 teaches all kids to read.

Step #3 motivates with success.

See what some of our greatest fans are saying.
