Our Reading tutors represent an elite group of individuals selected for their subject expertise, teaching experience, and ability to identify learning difficulties and different learning styles. They assess a student's reading level and then develop a plan that includes making reading interesting and fun.
Our dedication to each student’s success has resulted in recognition of our programs by Philadelphia and Montgomery County residents who recently voted us Best Tutoring Service with the philly.com Readers' Choice and Montgomery Media's Best Of Montco awards.
The goal is to increase fluency, comprehension and vocabulary, instill a joy of reading, and provide the confidence needed to confront any task. Students may need reading reinforcement any time from preschool through middle school and beyond. Tutoring can include phonics; comprehension; word attack skills for vocabulary; fluency; and making inferences.
For K to 3 students, it's important to practice and apply reading strategies, and to deepen their knowledge of letter and sound relationships, word families, and spelling patterns.
In grades 4 to 8, we help students monitor their comprehension and apply decoding skills to new and challenging content. Many students need instruction in interpreting and comprehending what they read.
For upper grade students, reading tutors help with comprehension, recall, and analysis. Students practice decoding long, multisyllabic words and using roots and textual clues to understand new ones.
Reading Tutoring And Reinforcement
We never require a minimum number of sessions. Our goal is to make students independent, successful readers by building their skills and confidence.
