When my son entered second grade, he still wasn't reading and found it frustrating. Mike's gentle approach created a lifelong love of reading.
They should return to teaching the basics in schools.
Stop wondering what you should do for your child and get "Back to Basics"
Thanks to Mike and Back to Basics Reading Clinic, school is becoming easier. I never could read very well, but now I can read better and reading is now interesting to me. Mike is the nicest person to help people.
Mike is a walking, talking dictionary and I have learned a lot from him, more than just reading.
Mike, we want to thank you for helping out our dad and my husband with his reading. He has come a long way since he came to your clinic. Thanks again.
Our daughter was in seventh grade and barely reading on a third grade level. Her lack of self-esteem and confidence were obvious but we were at a loss as to what to do. The school called her "condition" dyslexia. Finally, at the end of my rope, I called Mike at Back To Basics Reading Clinic.
We have been working with Mike for almost two years now. Through phonics and Mike's gentle persistence, today B can read well enough to be in the regular classroom with her peers and is achieving A's and B's in her classes. But more importantly she is confident in herself and chooses to read for leisure. She now looks forward to going to college and her future. I owe my daughter's future to Mike Audet and Back to Basics. Thanks, Mike.
Thank you Mike for being a great [tooter] tutor.
Sincerely, one of your best students.
I suspected my daughter had a learning disability even before her school did. Knowing of her difficulties, I brought her to see Mike Audet. For math she used to get pulled out of class to work with someone individually, now she stays in class. She is now working in the same math book as the rest of her class. We first tstarted coming to Mike between first and second grade. She could not even read at a first grade level. Two and a half years later, she is in fourth grade and reading at a fifth grade instructional level.
We are so grateful for Mike and Back to Basics. We tell everyone about his program.
To the Editor
I read the article about Mike Audet's Back to Basics clinic in the July 7 edition of the Mountain Gazette. As a homeschooling mom, I brought my children to Mike Audet's clinic to make sure I was teaching my children reading in an effective manner. He showed me how I could work with my children at home and teach him phonics in a systematic yet simple fashion. His back to basics approach worked wonders and my seven-year-old is now reading on a 5th grade level. My younger son, who just turned five in March, is reading on a first grade level. Mike gave me the tools and the confidence I needed to teach my children to read and I am very thankful! I highly recommend Mike Audet and his services to any parent with a child needing help with basic skills.
Thanks to Mike I am getting A's and B's in school. I also feel confident at school and I have fun! Mike is kind, fun, and funny! Both my sister and I have fun when we visit Mike every week.
Thanks a lot Mike!
Coming to Back to Basics has allowed me to better understand and appreciate mathematical knowledge.
Thanks to Back to Basics I'm getting A's and B's in school.
Back to Basics helped our son fill sizeable and critical gaps in his learning as well as assisting him with study habits.
Mr. Audet takes a personal interest in his students and their success, for which we are grateful.
Please consider this an announcement and a thank you, rather than a request for your presence.
Thank you for your help in making P's senior year an honor roll year, math aside! He is deferred from English and Human Biology exams, since he has "A's" in both.
Thank you for the laser, the tattoos and the catnip plant.
Thank you for teaching me how to read better.
Thanks for everything and thanks for helping us find our child (academically) again.
Thank you for all your help, Mike! We really appreciate it! Merry Christmas!
Just a huge "thank you" for all you've done for J!
We feel very fortunate to have found Mike's Back to Basics Reading Clinic. Our children needed help with phonics, but Mike expanded the program to include mathematics, history, and even Greek and Latin. The comprehensive education Mike offers has given our children a firm foundation and love of learning.
Mike's warmth, humor and encouragement have made our weekly visits a pleasure for the whole family!
I want to thank you so much for everything you do to help me get an education! I would not be going to Trinity if I did not meet you! When I stop tutoring I will always remember who gave me a good education!
I am now on grade level in reading. I love to read now that I am on grade level!
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to learn something new!
Thank you so much for all you have done for B and K and continue to do. It's so comforting to know there is someone out there that cares about their academic success as much as I do!
Here's a peom I wrote for you.
We appreciate your presence in our lives. You bring honesty, wisdom, and laughter into all of our lives. May your holidays be filled with health, vitality, and gratitude.
Thanks so much for making a difference in T's life! He will only grow from your tutelage!
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to learn. For all that I have learned and all that I will learn, I thank you!
I am a 41 year old high school graduate. My name is RL. I decided I wanted to go back to school. I heard about Mike Audet's reading clinic. Mike and I have worked together for a year and a half now. When I first started with Mike I was not reading at a first grade reading level. I am now reading at a fourth grade reading level, as a student working with Mike. I highly recommend anyone to go and work with Mike. His system really does work. As long as you work with the system.
We will forever be grateful and thankful for the time M got to spend with you in your reading clinic. M has enjoyed her time at Back to Basics and will miss her time especially with you.
Thank you again for all you've done for our daughter.
Mike has provided the basics academically and increased my daughter's self-esteem, she is reading! My daughter loves to read and write now! Mike provided the foundation and tools she didn't get from public school. Mike's warm approach to learning and teaching gave me the tools to help me, help my child succeed.
My daughter has learned to read, now she can read to learn!
My son has greatly improved his spelling, writing and reading skills since he started at Back to Basics. Mike has taught my son to read in six weeks. His study skills and confidence have improved a greate deal. Thank you!
Thank you so much for what you have done for S. We are so thankful that God brought you into our lives.
I love my tutor! (Mike)
Mike has been an inspiration to my wife and I with his work with our seven year old in his reading. Our son was finding it very hard to understand the concepts of reading. Mike Audet has given us the strategical ways of teaching and unlocking the secrets of teaching our child to read. We have seen a big improvement in his ability to read. He progresses more and more every week, and it is noticeable in his self-esteem. We are fortunate to be able to use Mike's services. We don't know what we would have done without him. Thanks Mike!
One year ago next month, my daughter J started being tutored by Mike. I received an email from her fifth grade teacher stating that J did not know most of her letter sounds and none of her vowel sounds. She had been receiving special services at school for reading since second grade. The day after receiving this information I was watching my other daughter play hockey and over heard another mother talking about her son. She was talking about his reading problems and how she had taken him to Mike for help. Her story sounded the same as J's. Before leaving the rink I asked for Mike's number. This was the best phone call I've ever made.
J has always disliked and at times even hated school. Her struggles with reading spilled over to all subjects in school. Since working with Mike her confidence in her own ability to do homework and class work has soared. She can now sound out words she doesn't know. She went from being in the lowest spelling word group, to being above grade level. She actually likes reading now and will pick up a book without being told to.
The icing on the cake was when she came home on the first day of school this year (six grade) and said she had a great day and loves school! We were feeling lost as to how to help our daughter and thankfully we found the answer for her in Mike.
We are so grateful that we found you. You and C have worked very hard this past year and it is paying off for all. We are looking forward to a successful year at Christ the King. If at any point we feel that C could again utilize your services we will call.
Labeled ADHD, emotionally depressed and out of control in the classroom, my son spent more time out of the classroom than in hit. Connecting with Mike Audet changed my son's academic career. He now has consistent A's and B's in class, his behaviour has changed, and most importantly, he's happy! Thanks to Mike's patient tutoring and extensive educational networking, our family was pointed to the right professionals who could bring out my son's inner talents. The best $30 I've ever spent!
Thank you so much for all you have done to help M reach her full potential. She has benefited immensely from your instruction. I've also enjoyed meeting you and your family! I hope our paths cross again!
Thank you for the opportunity to learn to read! If it was not for you I would still be failing. Now that I am home schooled it makes things even better.
