I founded the Fluency Factory after 20 years of dreaming, thinking and planning. We committed to serving all students — both struggling students and high achieving students. We use fluency charts to measure skills and build the love of learning. Our charts provide a direct measurement that we communicate immediately to the student. They can see their learning from minute to minute, day to day, week to week, in clear, graphic terms. Seeing this progress gives the student the confidence that he or she can do more, and that learning does not have to stop, or be bound by present skill deficits.
Our first kindergarten student came in for an assessment. The little girl did not know that the school had recommended holding her back. I asked how school is going. “Well, there are 19 kids in my class. Five of us are really good readers, and can read, like, chapter books. And nine of us are pretty good readers, and can read like, Dr.Seuss. And five of us can't read at all, and I am one of those. Her sad face has haunted me ever since – helping children like her, building their skills and confidence, is the best reward of our work and the most important thing we do.
Since the founding of the Fluency Factory in 2002, we have been able to help many, many students develop an extremely high level of success. The steady development of both confidence and skill in these students, and the ongoing delight they take in learning, may be the greatest pleasure of directing this center.

What is Fluency?
Fluency is the ability to perform a skill quickly and accurately. Fluent performances lead to retention, endurance and application of learned skills.
- Fluent readers read aloud at 200 words per minute
- Fluent mathematicians write basic math facts at 75 digits per minute and higher
You can see and hear fluency - it is the difference between an expert and beginner, between a real useful skill and a lifetime of struggle. Learners who do not possess fluent level of performance will have difficulties with higher order work and will not retain what they have learned.
