“After attending The Learning Center’s Reading Clinics over the summer, my daughter’s life was entirely changed. Her grades went from D’s last year to A’s and B’s so far this year. She’s more confident, and she loves to read now.” 
   - Carrie, Boulder, CO 
“When working with Blair, not only do you get the Barton program, but you also get a talented tutor that relates extremely well with children and teens…I highly recommend both Barton and Blair since the combination has changed my son’s life.” 
   - Ron, Boulder, CO

“Blair was adamant that Barton would make a difference for my son, so we decided to give it a try. As the months went by, it slowly became very obvious that school was becoming easier and his confidence was emerging.”       – Jeff, Erie, CO
“One year of Barton tutoring with Blair Tyse helped my daughter more than doing years of other methods and spending thousands of dollars on ineffective programs.”
