Julie Lang

Founder of The Rock Star Readers

Upon my arrival in the Roaring Fork Valley 25 years ago I started a family and found myself busy teaching art classes, art camps, ski school and horse back riding. In 2008 I became aware my youngest child is dyslexic. It was a gut instinct because I myself am dyslexic, and, after having my son tested I found my instincts to be true. Knowing first hand what it is like to struggle with reading, I understand how humiliating it can be to the poor reader in the class. This promoted me to explore my son’s options. I do not want my child or any child to suffer the low self esteem being a struggling reader can promote.

I joined the International Dyslexia Foundation and become Certified in the Wilson Reading Program. The program is stylized and designed not only to teach dyslexic children but to teach all children who struggle with reading no matter the learning difference. After teaching this program to children over the past four years I have experienced what a difference individualized reading tutoring can make in a child’s reading performance and self esteem.

One-on-one tutoring with a high-quality, trained reading instructor makes a world of difference for a child. Unfortunately this type of specialized instruction can be expensive and financially prohibitive for many families. So I founded The Rock Star Readers which provides tutoring on a sliding fee scale based on household income. The mission to help all children who struggle with reading to not only become good readers but to enjoy reading and know their genius.
