Who We Are & What We Do!

Our goal is to get children to love to learn as much as our staff does!

Reading Escapades and Math Explorers accomplishes this through customized games and unique teaching strategies that are developed individually for your child.

Do you feel that your children’s education is important to their success in life?

If the answer is YES, then our educational coaches can help your children reach their maximum potential while they are having fun and being nurtured.

This is a service that you won’t find at big-name learning centers.  

Your child is not just a number to us!

We offer a variety of reading and math clubs, book discussions, and private tutoring for most subjects. We also offer day camps to help your child feed his or her curiosity, foster a love of learning, and succeed in life.

Christine Allen

Youth Success Coach

While I love learning new things, I really enjoy showing students how exciting it is to gain knowledge themselves. Seeing the light in a child’s eyes when he or she finally understands something is really rewarding. I enjoy a variety of subjects for different reasons. I love reading and analyzing because there is no right answer. On the other hand, I love math and science because there always is a right answer. When not helping students, I enjoy reading, skiing, hiking, and swimming.

I am so blessed to be able to help Christine and the rest of the coaches get their students to be the best they can be.  I have been working in the education field for twenty-five years and love to see the students grow and develop.  When not at Reading Escapades & Math Explorers, I’m taking care of my two teenage children. 


Miss Ann

Lead Education Coach

Learning to read wasn’t easy for me, however, I had an amazing 2nd grade teacher that finally helped me “get it”. She is my inspiration for helping children to reach their learning goals. I love to read now and it is all because someone took the time to teach me in the best way for me. It is my passion to follow in her footsteps and help children succeed. When I am not teaching, you will usually find me curled up with my puppies, Penny and Leah, or cheering my children on at their music, dance, and scouting events.


Miss Val

Lead Education Coach

I love being able to work with a student and see not only their work ethic and grades progress, but their overall attitude improve. It’s a very fulfilling feeling to know I was apart of this change; that I had an impact on their lives, and little do they know they always impact mine. I currently have an Associate’s in Education, a Bachelor’s in English Literature, and am currently working towards becoming a Secondary English teacher. I love reading, watching movies, and I’m very obsessed with my cat named Batman.  My overall hope is to get more kids to enjoy reading and learning.

Hello! I’m Carolyn Viola. I’m a homeschooling mother of two wonderful children. We enjoy going on adventures through the wonderful world of education together. I credit my father for creating within me a passion for learning. Because of this, I’ve loved finding each individual child’s unique motivation. It is my sincere desire to help students achieve academic confidence and a genuine love of learning, by finding out what inspires them.

Miss Maddie

Education Coach

I have always enjoyed learning, although it wasn’t always easy for me. My mom worked with me until I understood it. I have her to thank for the many hours late at night going over things. I love math because it’s always the same and reliable; history because there are so many things we can learn from other people and their decisions; grammar because there is only one was to say something properly. When I’m not working, you can find me reading, baking, watching movies and being with my family.

Hi! I am a mother of twin boys in their teen years, Carter and Kaden, they are my world! I have 2 dogs named Midnight and Mr. Chips. I enjoy spending time with my family: out to eat, hockey and baseball games, mini golf, amusement parks, just to name a few. I love long road trips and learning new things.

I hope your experience with our great team here at Reading Escapades and Math Explorers is interesting and enjoyable.
