How can 12th Grade Reading tutoring help you?
Senior year is a critical time for college-bound seniors to build fundamental skills that can help them cope with the increased workload to come. And what is one of the biggest areas of increased homework load? Reading. When first glancing over their syllabi, many first-year college students feel immediately overwhelmed by the amount of reading that they are suddenly expected to take on. It can make you feel stressed or even frustrated, two factors that often lead to faltering in school.
The smart thing to do is to start preparing to face all of that college-level reading before its onset. This is why Varsity Tutors helps you connect with reading tutoring specifically for twelfth graders. Reading tutors can help you make sense of your high school reading homework, and help you prepare to face more difficult assignments. Tutors can work with you to help you improve the speed of your reading, learn to retain more information from what you read, work on vocabulary development, help you pick out the main ideas and organization of a passage, discuss inferences and conclusions that you can draw, and show you how to take great notes to help you remember vital information, as well as address any other concerns you may have about your reading ability.
The best part is that tutoring is completely one-on-one, so your tutor can focus on areas where you need the most help. Rather than working at the rate of your classmates, as you would at school, your tutor uses a flexible, personalized learning plan that can quickly be altered based on your progression and needs. When you master a concept early, your tutor simply moves on to the next section. You may be given assessment tests or assignments to work with in between sessions to use alongside your current coursework. This makes each reading session extremely efficient, as you don't have to waste time reviewing concepts you already understand. Your goals become your tutor's priorities and they strive to help you achieve them.
Not only does your tutor design your lessons around your goals, but he or she also designs it to take place when and where it works best for your schedule. Whether you would like your sessions to take place at your local library, in your favorite cafe, in the comfort of your own living room, or even online, your tutor can make that happen. Many tutors offer a combination of online and in-person sessions for students who have a packed schedule. If you have extracurricular, work, or family responsibilities, your tutor will understand and can work with a hectic schedule. In addition, you can always request to meet more frequently, which can be valuable when you have an approaching test or a project that you are working on for class.
These tutors are experienced educators who have a passion for teaching. Each tutor is knowledgeable in the subject, so you can feel confident that he or she can answer your questions and share great strategies that can help you succeed. You can gain valuable insight to reading, such as active reading methods that allow you to quickly identify important information to take note of. You are given ongoing feedback and reports of your progress to help you keep on track to achieve your personal and academic goals in reading. Your tutor can articulately breakdown an explanation into easily digested pieces of information that can help you to grasp a concept quickly.
Private tutoring is a great choice for students finishing high school and preparing for college, so contact Varsity Tutors today for more information on how to connect with the perfect tutor to begin scheduling your first session!
