Great experience so far working with Simbi reading coach and doing assignments! Our main goal was to make sure that our son was developing a reading habit. And it works! After three months of Simbi’s sessions, our son asked to buy some books at the school fair for the first time.

Simbi has turned our reluctant reader into a word-hungry bookworm! He’s reading everything in sight, and has advanced at an incredible pace. The coaches are wonderful and the platform is fun, fulfilling, and completely effective. Forever grateful for Simbi ♡

Simbi helped me learn to read. It is a lot of fun, and I even get to earn stars to access cool Simbi avatars! My favourite part is narrating books to help people around the world! Yay!
