America Reads, the work-study program that trains University of Michigan students as reading tutors, made a significant contribution. Some 30 U-M students joined our core group of tutors.


FLI tutors attend training sessions and commit to working once a week with a student who is struggling to read at grade level. “Our students benefit from one-to-one tutoring and from the special attention and encouragement they receive from FLI coaches,” said Sharine Buddin, Executive Director of the Family Learning Institute. “We appreciate their continued dedication.”

 Best of both worlds in 2019-2020

 We have the opportunity to return to our original location on South Industrial, thanks to generous support from the family of Doris Sperling, FLI’s co-founder.The move will give us the best of both worlds: the ability to work with students in one location and to work with others in our expanding outreach program.

Watch your email for specifics of our move, scheduled for completion in September 2019.

Our new address: 1954 S. Industrial Hwy, Suite D, Ann Arbor, MI 48104.
