Our Tutoring Services At Kids With Class


Is your child struggling in school, not making good grades, having trouble keeping up with their peers?

Kids With Class KC is a one-of-a-kind reading recovery program that utilizes proven techniques and strategies for the struggling student. 

Our program is designed by a Reading Specialist.  It is based on principles that are proven at helping students who have struggled in reading.  Our kids make an average of 2-3 years growth in a year, and more importantly, these are lasting gains.  

  Our program is built on the statistics that show 100 % of students who fall behind in reading have one thing in common:  they struggle with fluency.  

 What is fluency?  

Good question, as most schools and tutoring programs don't teach it, yet it 

is the ROOT of reading growth.  It is the DRIVER of comprehension.  Without it, your child will struggle in reading throughout their school life. 

    Fluency is reading smoothly, confidently at grade level, without struggle or effort.  With it, your child can comprehend what they are reading.  It is a skill that enables your child to understand how words and word parts, sentences, flow or connect together comfortably.  Without it, your child will get stuck in their reading development at around the 3rd to 4th grade level. 

How does your child sound?  Choppy and hesitant?  Struggling with each word?  

Call us for a free consultation to see how your child can grow and blossom into a confident reader.   

At Kids With CLass KC, it's what we do.   

Our Expertise

Children learn well in groups.  They support each other, challenge each other, and learn quickly.

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.


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.

Reading Recovery Program

Many of our students in our tutoring centers make over 2-3 years growth with lasting gains in the classroom, in less than one year.  

Have any of your other tutoring in Kansas City offered lasting gains in reading? Or does your child relapse after a few months, without making noticeable growth in their reading.  

What is so different about Kids With Class KC is that 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.
