Building Readers First led by Jemeria Cummings has been a godsend for our daughter. Initially my daughter was having academic struggles. With the help of B.R. F. my daughter realized her academic potential and is confident in her schoolwork. I definitely recommend contacting Jemeria if your child needs help in reading, language arts, math, etc.

Jacan Wright, Parent

Building Readers First is so amazing. My son was having trouble with phonics and this was an area Mommy struggled in as well. I was impressed by their patience, creativity, and sincere desire to see him succeed.His teacher stated, "I can tell you guys have been working with him at home." My little secret was Building Readers First. He received an award for reading at the end of the year. Building Readers First worked for us.
