One-to-one reading support tailored to each child

Coram Beanstalk supports children aged three to 13 years with trained reading helpers to improve their reading ability and confidence

Our one-to-one reading support changes the child's life by: 

  • Improving their reading ability
  • Inspiring confidence in their own ability
  • Increasing their enjoyment of reading

Coram Beanstalk reading helpers are trained to recognise what challenges each child faces and to tailor their sessions to support each child.

Each Coram Beanstalk-trained reading helper works with on average three children and provides consistent support on a weekly basis, for a whole school year. Together, they read, play and talk.
