Our Value Proposition
A one-time investment that can keep on giving
While there are no certainties of course, our Fast ForWord program aims to be a step-change for the student, a one-time program that aims to end reading and learning frustration, get children off the tutoring treadmill AND save thousands of dollars in future tutoring. This makes the cost of Fast ForWord a compelling value – in quality of life and in dollars.
We understand these are bold claims – more these claims here – but they are based on our 15+ years of experience and thousands of success stories.
If we can resolve or at least lessen the impact of delays and deficits, you will save money on tutoring, other therapies and/or medicines. It’s an investment, not a recurring expense.
If your child can achieve learning independence, there’s more than saving tutoring costs at stake, there is also the aggravation and effort that comes with tutoring – for you and your child. And with learning independence, comes self-esteem for your child.
Professional Involvement vs Do It Yourself
Educational software at home falls short, primarily due to poor compliance — despite good intentions, children either don’t do it or it is done incorrectly, not unlike the home exercise equipment collecting dust in basements across America.
This is where our “personal trainer” approach is key — your money is not wasted with us. We will do everything possible to make this work for you and your child. This includes extensive online learning resources, certified educators, extended service hours, remote session technology and coaching, and more. All of this adds to the cost of the Fast ForWord program, but when you think about the lifetime implications, and the time investment involved, it’s important to do it right – a proven program with experienced coaching guidance.
Not to mention, when there is a curveball, an unexpected impediment or change in circumstances, you need a professional involved to help you make the right next step.
Research-Validated Programs Are Worth It
Gemm Learning has been a leader in at-home learning interventions since 2006, and our software programs are research-validated. Read the research here.
Furthermore, we stand by our results. If you are not happy with the outcome we will provide another program free of charge for up to three months. Learn more
Another way we keep the Fast ForWord cost down is with our discounted prepayment packages. Clients can also take advantage of our installment plans.

“He was on the Honor Roll for every quarter last year in the sixth grade at Middle School (without paid tutors!!). I could have never imagined, during elementary school, that he would have done this well. I probably would still be paying for tutors if it weren’t for Gemm. Thanks again.”
