About The Reading Ranch Tutorial Centers
The Reading Ranch
We are a literacy learning center developed by Dr. Kim Southwell. The Reading Ranch® has been in business for over 12 years in Dallas area. We currently have six locations in the Dallas area and are rapidly expanding through franchising as well as company-owned locations. The Reading Ranch focuses exclusively on literacy (reading, phonetics, spelling, vocabulary, comprehension and writing) for young students from Pre-K through 6th grade. If you love children and would like to make a difference in their lives by operating your own Reading Ranch Center, please contact us. We would love to hear from you.
