Read Across America & Dr. Seuss’ Birthday Celebrations at SLES

As you can see from the NEA Read Across America video, Bella’s Story, it is important to develop a love of learning at an early age.  Our schools work hard to develop this interest…and have some fun while doing so!

As a classroom teacher, I also loved helping my students develop a love of learning.  I too celebrated literacy in a variety of ways, for a variety of learners.  And then, I learned about dyslexia.  I learned that most classrooms do not support the dyslexic learner in the way they really need to be supported to foster and develop that love of reading.  So, I chose to do something different!

Have time work better for you through our Seeing My Time courses

Dr. Seuss Artwork Unveiled!

Successful Learning, Dr. Seuss and Reading

Successful Learning Educational Services recently purchased two limited edition Seuss prints from Marcus Ashley Fine Art Gallery in Tahoe, Nevada. The art displays our work perfectly! Our tutors and staff come alongside a student who would love to be able to read. These students, who need reading instruction provided in the way that they learn, require support during this journey to reading. We provide the necessary support and instruction. In time, students are then able to read whatever they desire on their own. This is the reason we are celebrating!

HeartMath® Classes for Adults and Kids!!

Cheryl is now a Certified HeartMath® Coach!


Life is messy!  Do you sometimes feel so overwhelmed that your ability to focus is interrupted, you have difficulty getting things accomplished, and even how you communicate with others is impacted?  HeartMath® courses provide attendees with techniques to become more equipped to handle life’s more challenging moments.

We all need the ability to bring into focus what we are really feeling and thinking…the ability to bring our heart and mind together.  We need tools that we can use in the moment when we could otherwise feel overwhelmed and disengaged.  We need to recognize what brings us energy and what depletes our daily capacity to thrive.

HeartMath techniques will help you to synchronize what your heart and mind is telling you and provide you with techniques to bounce back from difficult moments in your day. These simple, but effective, tools will help you to better recognize whether your heart and mind are in sync, and how that can affect you physically, emotionally, and mentally. This short course will provide you with techniques that are available to you wherever you are and whenever you need them.

Don’t waste another day feeling overwhelmed!  Join us for this middle-of-the day class.  You will be finished before your children get out of school…and in fact, might have more resilience and coping skills to manage the rest of the day with your family!

Several Available Classes:

  1.  July 11th, 12th, 13th, 17th & 18th  2:00PM-3:15PM   Registration Link

Does your child struggle with test anxiety?  Do they break down when work becomes too difficult?  Do they seem to lack the ability to tackle everyday problems?  We will share techniques that have been developed to help children better cope with daily expectations.  These techniques can help them before those emotional meltdowns occur.

A student recently came in to the tutoring session stressed from the day at school.  He had shut down emotionally and the tutor could tell they were not going to get much accomplished that day.  She asked the parent if she could share a new technique that she had been using to bring calmness and clarity to the situation.  After the parent agreed, the tutor asked the student if he would be willing to try something new.  He agreed.  The tutor shared the simple, two-minute technique with him.  Immediately, the student’s whole demeanor shifted.  A calmness came over his face.  He then stated that he was ready to begin tutoring.  He engaged positively the rest of the session.  The tutor shared that she would begin a class soon using this and other techniques.  The student enthusiastically asked if he could attend the class!
