The English language has over a million words, yet only 45 sounds of speech. When the 70 basic phonograms and 28 spelling rules are mastered early in life, no word is impossible to sound out phonetically.
Further, my program builds on a foundation of intensive, multi-sensory learning. And, in addition, using great literature inspires students to want to read and learn as an independent reader.
We also teach work on cursive penmanship, spelling, and intensive phonics and vocabulary along with grammar and writing as time allows.
Great tutor . My kids have made great progress in reading and comprehension because of her .
First, I get to know the reason the parent is seeking a tutor, then I administer a free reading assessment. We discuss what has been done to correct the issue. And I offer my suggestions for how to correct the problem.
My B.S. degree is in Secondary Education with majors in English and Speech/Play Directing. I have attended workshops by endorsed Spell to Write and Read trainers and have experience using Spalding/Sanseri direct instruction in intensive phonics with my own children, elementary and middle school struggling readers in a charter school in Texas. My private tutoring students and intervention students progres rapidly from two or more grade levels below their current grade. Usualy half of the small group students move from Tier 3 to Tier 1 in less than a semester.
Private tutees progress at a more rapid rate, some making two grade level advances in just two months.
