About Kristin Cetone

Kristin Anderson Cetone is the Director for her online reading assessment and reading tutoring services, Nuts About Reading™. The goal of her Nuts About Reading™ Course is to prepare and train parent and other community partners to supplement a child’s pathway to reading success.

“Reading success is the foundation to education and our most important vehicle as we travel our life journeys to self-discovery.”

We are not born with a reading ‘gene’. Reading is a learned skill and starts at birth with read-aloud books to introduce children to the sound of language, the structure of language, and development of vocabulary. Teaching the ‘process’ of reading begins in Pre-K/Kindergarten, with expected mastery by the end of third grade when the focus transitions from ‘learning to read’ to ‘reading to learn’.

Kristin subscribes to the use of multi-sensory processes for learning to read. She strongly advocates for integrating S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) with the development of literacy skills.

“Scientists, Technologists, Engineers, Artists, and Mathematicians cannot comprehend complex texts and create new pathways of thinking and discovery if they can’t read!”
