Our Expertise

Kids With Class KC uses a program, designed by a Reading Specialist, using proven strategies, to bring your child into reading proficiency.  Our kids make amazing growth, in relatively short periods of time.  Most importantly, they are lasting gains, that they take with them throughout their lives.  

Our expertise is helping your child succeed in reading.  We teach the skill of fluency, which is the most important aspect in determining your child's growth in reading.  Did you know that most tutoring services, and even schools, do not teach fluency.  Yet, it is the door to comprehension,and the number one reason that children fall behind in reading development.


Learning new things, discovering the world, with your best friend.

Personalized Attention

We offer a proven computerized program that takes your child, one step at a time, through the phonetic code of the English language, and builds fluency with each lesson.  You will be amazed as your child begins to read words, sentences, stories, that they were struggling with just a few months prior to enrolling in our program.  As your child develops the ability to read confidently, their comprehension will improve as well.  Fluency and comprehension go hand in hand toward reading development and growth.  See your child smile, again, with new-found confidence, at Kids With Class KC.

Real Testimonials from Parents

Kids With Class KC has been a God-send for our son, Chase.  He was in the 1st grade, and being recommended for retention.  We came to Kids With Class, and 8 months later, our son was reading not only at grade level, but one grade level above.  He is reading chapter books, and actually enjoying reading now.  We are so grateful for Kids With Class, and its owner, Dana Segur.  

Julie Jackson, Pharmacist, Kansas City, MO

I want to personally commend Kids With Class KC.  Both of my granddaughters have attended the program, with excellent results.  My first granddaughter was in the 2nd grade, and barely reading at the first grade level.  Her teacher was recommending that she repeat the year.  We enrolled at Kids With Class during the summer, and by the end of the summer, my granddaughter was reading at the 3rd grade level.  She is now in middle school, and reads proficiently and confidently.  Her younger sister was in serious trouble by the time she was in the 3rd grade.  She attends a good school district, and even received special help.  But it was not enough.  We enrolled her at Kids With Class, and now 6 months later, she is reading at grade level.  I firmly believe if it were not for Kids With Class, both of my granddaughters would have remained struggling readers throughout their school career.  

Bertha Packard, Kansas City, MO

I brought my granddaughter to Kids With Class with severe issues during her 2nd grade school year..  She was barely reading at a kindergarten level.  She suffered from visual and hearing impairments, as well as dyslexia.  Ms. Dana helped her immensely.  In fact, I can't say enough about Kids With Class.  If my granddaughter had not enrolled at Kids With Class, I don't believe she would be reading today.

Specials in Our Tutoring Service

We are running a special on our tuition pricing.  We are already the most reasonably priced tutoring service in the area, but we want to make sure our tuition prices make it possible for every child to receive the help they need.  

Reading Recovery Program

Many of the students in our tutoring centers make over 2-3 years growth with lasting gains in the classroom, in less than one year.  Some of our kids have been severely delayed and have caught up to their peers, gaining confidence and self esteem.  

If you have tried other tutoring programs, you may be given a false sense of your child's  improvement, as scores alone do not reflect the true understanding of the child's foundational base.  

Without a strong foundation, that your child receives at Kids With Class KC, your child may relapse after a few months, without having made true growth in their reading. 


At Kids With Class KC your kids enroll in a PROGRAM that systematically builds a foundation of reading skills, in a step-by-step program that leads to fluency, comprehension and complete reading success and recovery. 

Kids With Class KC is designed by a Reading Specialist, with over 30 years in education, who has used these same proven principles and strategies that propelled students toward success in the classroom.
