Our Story

The Rock Star Readers is a new organization started by Julie C. Lang, who passionately believes that reading is a social justice issue. There are numerous sobering articles and much research that describe the long-term effects of illiteracy in our society.

Julie knows that high-quality, individualized instruction benefits struggling readers. Since this type of specialized instruction can be financially prohibitive, she founded The Rock Star Readers which provides tutoring on a sliding fee scale based on household income.

Julie is a Wilson Reading System® Dyslexia Practitioner. 

The goal of Rock Star Readers is to supply families and schools with trained reading tutors to work one-on-one with struggling readers who will grow from specialized instruction. Our goal is to help all struggling readers who seek our support.

What We Do: Structured Literacy Instruction

The Rock Star Readers believes that every struggling reader deserves the highest quality structured literacy instruction regardless of financial circumstances. Instruction will be delivered by caring and compassionate tutors who have been rigorously trained and certified in the most effective methods of structured literacy practices based on scientific research. Our hope is that all struggling readers become lifelong and joyous readers and writers.
