How can a Phonics tutor help you?
The educational directors at Varsity Tutors may connect you with phonics tutoring in Columbus if your child is struggling to learn. When a child is struggling to learn phonics, it is common for parents to fear the worst: What if my child never learns to read? What if they struggle to read throughout elementary school and have difficulty in other subjects when they may not read their textbooks? If this is how you feel right now, then stop worrying! Many children who struggle a bit in their phonics classes go on to become great readers! However, it may take a little help from a tutor to get them caught up with the class. Call the educational directors in Columbus, OH, to find an expert tutor in phonics to help try to improve your child's chances of success in the course.
Did you know that many educational professionals believe that of all written languages in the world, English is the most difficult to learn to read? Unlike other languages that rely on accent marks to show the reader the difference between the sound of a "long" vowel and a "short" one, new readers must determine how to pronounce the vowel based on the surrounding letters alone. Also, the English language has a relatively small alphabet of just 26 letters, while many languages may have more. This actually makes learning to read the language harder, because the lack of letters leads to consonant combinations that are pronounced much differently than either consonant alone. Many new readers struggle with these consonant combinations.
There are five teaching methods typically used to teach phonics to children, and your child's struggle may be due to his or her teacher using a method that just doesn't work with their learning style. When faced with a classroom full of students who all have various styles of learning, your child's teacher, unfortunately, has to choose one style (or maybe combine a couple) to try to help the entire class the most. This is why a tutor may be a huge advantage to a young, struggling new reader; a tutor may use the exact phonics teaching method that they determine is best for your child. After a few sessions with a tutor, you might even be surprised by how quickly your child catches up with the class and maybe even passes his or her peers up in reading skills!
