Reading is fundamental.
It is the single most important skill that learners of all ages must master. Reading is intimately tied to how we experience the world and continue to grow in all aspects of our life. It is also an important measure of academic ability required by the majority of standardized tests and educational assessments.
Whether your student is just learning how to read or looking for advanced analytical techniques for upper level Language Arts, our tutors are able to patiently and effectively teach your student how to embrace this universal skill with confidence.
Here are some useful tips:
- Read everyday with your children. Select reading material that the child is fascinated by. Give the child a reading lesson. Perhaps, let them read the final paragraph of the story so they will consider themselves a part of the daily reading procedure.
- If feasible, join a library. There are also numerous child reading websites that children enjoy. When it is fun, it becomes easier for a child learning to read.
- Subscribe to at least one children’s publication. Let your child select the publication (with a little guidance of course). Youngsters who build their own reading tastes, read more than those kids who are made to read what others find interesting.
- Write some notes to your child. Have your child write notes to you. Leave them throughout your home. This works for children learning to read and write. Take the time to read your notes to them. Then you read the notes they have written to you. You can also help your children write letters to grandparents. Then, of course, have them read the letters they get from the grandparents out loud to you. It will not only help them learn to read, but may also build a stronger bond between them and their grandparents.
- When they are old enough, help them to understand that reading is a component of our day to day life. Yes, we read for enjoyment, but we also read out of need. Baking a cake for the first time is easier and probably tastes much better if you have a recipe to read. A child learning to read needs to understand this (again, when they are old enough).
- Buy a book that you enjoyed when you were young and read it to your children. You may find yourself bemused with the memories that you recollect! The narrative may in actuality even end differently than you remember.
- You must encourage your child to read aloud. It helps so much to raise self-reliance in a child learning to read. When they make a mistake, let them understand that everyone, even adults, make mistakes when reading. The objective is to get better and not to feel bad about the error.
- Children who are taught to read at home and at an early age, are generally much more successful in school. You can create a significant advantage for your child by helping them grow their ability to read.
Children of all ages can struggle with reading. We offer a broad range of reading tutoring to students experiencing difficulty with:
- Reading Comprehension – Many students have difficulty remembering what they read. Our tutors employ research-backed strategies to help students better understand what they read and retain information.
- Reading Speed – Is your student struggling to read at an adequate speed? Is reading a laborious task for your student? A private tutor can help students improve the speed with which they read.
- Reading Accuracy – Young students often get into harmful guessing habits when it comes to reading. Learning how to decode and pronounce words correctly is fundamental to success in reading.
Our reading tutors are committed to encouraging the enjoyment of reading and view this as a central element in reading improvement and success.
