Meet our Founder/CEO/Reading Specialist:

Julie Herd

Founder, CEO, Reading Specialist

   Julie Herd is a Reading Specialist, credentialed teacher, and homeschooling mom. She’s a former Kindergarten classroom teacher and has held positions such as Education Coordinator, Mentor Teacher and Trainer, school administrator, and Home Based Services Coordinator. She is currently completing her Master's degree in Literacy and Reading Education at CSUF. Julie is trained in the Orton-Gillingham approach, which is an approach to teaching reading that is especially helpful for those with reading difficulties, including dyslexia. Julie has a Child Development Permit at the Program Director level and has been working in the field of education for 20 years.
   Julie founded Reading Reach to make reading services available to homeschooling families and striving readers, including those with dyslexia. Reading Reach helps empower students with literacy skills so they can reach their goals in reading. Reading Reach offers reading tutoring (TK-8), dyslexia screening and educational therapy, and microschool classes (TK-3). ​
   Reading Reach serves Oceanside CA and surrounding areas, and has been a licensed business since 2021. Julie's husband, Matt Herd, is a little league baseball coach and our occasional classroom instructional assistant.

TK-3 Microschool Homeschool Class

Enroll your child in a microschool class directed by a reading specialist / credentialed teacher. 

While participating in our microschool classes, students will engage in structured literacy, phonics, reading and writing, and multisensory math, science, and art on a rotating basis. 

Reading Reach has two locations in Oceanside to choose from. Our first site is operated out of our founder's home classroom in the Jeffries Ranch area (92057). 

Our second location is in coastal Oceanside, located at Breakwater Community Church. There is a spacious outdoor area for learning and playing, and indoor classroom areas for us to utilize, including a kitchen facility and a small stage for performances!
