Roshni (4 years old) is really blessed to have you as the Master, she loves to read, her reading skill has improved constantly, and she has learnt a lot of words.

I have found a marked improvement in the reading ability, propensity to study and learn more in my daughter Gayathri. This attitudinal change is the biggest benefit for her and kindling interest in children to learn more is done by Reading Circle.
