I’m 24 years old with a reading problem. I can read pretty good. My problem is sounding out words and spelling words. Is there anything I can do to improve my reading and spelling skills?



Thanks for your inquiry. We’ve helped many students improve their reading and spelling skills.

Take a look at Developing Critical Thinking Skills for Effective Reading. The program helps students improve their reading comprehension and develops their ability to make inferences. Though it is designed for students who read at 5th through 8th grade levels, adult students can benefit from it as well. Also consider Vocabulary Stretch. It teaches students roots and origins of words.
