Foundations Tutoring is an extension of the very successful Barton Reading Program that was implemented in Pleasanton schools from 2001 to 2012. We have over ten years of standardized data demonstrating that our students make significant and lasting progress over time. They DO catch up to grade level.

“In Middle School, my daughter was getting D’s and F’s. After one year of tutoring with the Barton system she is now getting mostly A’s and some B’s! But, more importantly, you should see her new attitude. She is much happier and easier to deal with each day. Thank you, thank you!”

“I have three Barton students in my class. I see the impact of this program daily. One of these students, who has been in the program for 2 1/2 years, is even in my highest reading group. Knowing his initial skills, I am convinced he would not be there without the support of this program.”
