About Us


We aim for having fun while getting the job done!


Welcome, Parents!

Do you have a child who needs a little extra help with reading?  Have you heard, "Why do we have to?"  That is a great question.  Giving children a reason to read is a great start to making them want to read.  It is my hope to give students a reason--a why-- to read and then give them skills that can help them become better faster readers who understand what they are reading.  Give Joy Lester a call! 

At Beacon Athenaeum a certified teaching professional and assistants will work with your student. We hope to be the guiding light that directs your captain reader to sail on a lingual journey that they will enjoy!

So, if you need a little reading rescue, don't be afraid to reach out to Joy Lester, owner, and operator of the Beacon Athenaeum!

Does your ship need saving?  SOS? (Save our Ship?)  HIH!(Help is here!)  

             We're here to help

            your child progress,

             to get on course 

             and do their best!


Reading is fun!

We love to play games while learning the skills to help students read.
