How does 'Reading Gym' work?

8 sessions 
every month

Reading Gym is all about building consistency and habit formation, and that’s why we call it the ‘Reading Gym’. Once you enroll into the reading gym, you commit to 8 sessions every month. We will set you up with the right reading teacher matching your child’s level and your convenient time slots. You will start seeing the magic of books within the next few months.

Deep dive into 
a Novel

In their 8 sessions every month, kids will read 1 full-length chapter book / novel. In every session they read a defined number of chapters and do a series of collaborative activities to engage and fully immerse themselves into a book. This builds reading stamina and deeper comprehension skills, which will serve them well in the future while handling reading for classroom work.

Guided Sessions By 
Reading Experts

Our trained, qualified and super cool reading teachers are the core of our Reading Gym. Being voracious readers themselves, they inspire the love for reading in your child, while building comprehension skills and honing 21st-century skills. They are skilled at using books as a pathway to working on non-literacy skills like critical thinking and collaboration.

The sessions are intentionally designed with the principle of ‘Ask more, speak less’. The teacher prioritizes asking kids impactful questions and mentoring them to develop their own voice, over closed explanations and monotonous teaching. Our sessions are thus collaborative circles, not stifled lines.


While our classes are super fun and focus on reading for pleasure, we are very serious about every child’s progress. Our curriculum is aligned to the international reading levels like DRA, Lexile and Fountas and Pinnell. Every month, you will receive a report on how your child is doing and how much have they progressed.

What skills will your child learn in the Reading Gym?

Deep Comprehension

At the Independent Readers level, your child is trained to read texts with more complexity - novels with interweaving narratives that deal with many themes. So reading strategies required at this level are also deeper.

The reading strategies that are practiced at this level mirror the reading skills that are typically tested in standardized tests like SAT and IELTS. They also prepare the child to transfer their reading skills to their approach to reading in different school subjects.

21st Century Life Skills

There is often a gap between the skills inculcated in a child in the classroom and the skills required of the child in the future at a college and workplace level. The 21st-century learning skills determine if your child is equipped to tackle complex challenges. 

All 4 C’s are explored, practiced and sharpened at Reading Gym by using books as a tool.

  • Critical Thinking - Asking questions, Inference based on evidence, Doing research on a topic
  • Creativity - Brainstorming ideas, Thinking outside the box, Writing fan fiction
  • Collaboration - Asking for feedback, Active listening, Productivity habits
  • Communication - Expressing ideas effectively both spoken and written

Communication Skills

Communication skills are given special attention and time in the Reading Gym. There is time dedicated in the sessions for kids to exercise their written and spoken communication, by practicing skills like making presentations, performing with writing for social media.

Are these classes in person or online?

We have both the options. Currently, we have our in person classes in Chennai and Bangalore. We are slowly expanding across the other cities in India. Online classes are available for students across the country.

Will children be reading using hard copy books?

In the class, your child will be reading the book digitally. But if your child prefers reading with a physical copy of the book, all the chosen titles will be easily available for purchase online or at a bookstore.

How does my child benefit from the program?

Regular, consistent reading is like having a good, healthy lifestyle. It might not give your child dramatic results, but will give them a healthy future. Reading and building a reading habit can save you a lot of money in the future. You will spend less on entrance coaching and tutoring for your child. 

  • Sessions with qualified, trained, passionate reading teachers
    Money can buy books, but it will not make your child read. And you already know that as a parent. To get your child to read, you need someone to work with them, to inspire, to role-model, to build consistency, to teach techniques and to have fun. Our teachers can do that for you and you will be thanking them with every success in your child’s life journey.

    Our per session cost is lesser than the cost of a pizza or a movie ticket. Isn’t it worth it? We are not babysitting or telling your child, we are nurturing them. We believe your child is a seed with huge potential and we want to help you give them the right resources. You might not see the potential of the seed now, but in a few years, you will be surprised and we would like to be a part of your journey. 
  • Curriculum by literacy experts    
    While what you see is the teacher who will be working with your child, there is a big team of literacy teachers, language experts and book lovers, handpicking every title and creating lesson plans, activities, worksheets and challenges to engage and support your child to grow into a life-long reader.
