How can a Varsity Tutors instructor help you make sense of Phonics through tutoring?

Phonics

Phonics is a method of teaching reading based on the relationship between letters and sounds; it is also key to developing an important, life-long skill for emerging readers. Varsity Tutors understands the significance of helping children learn how to read based on a solid foundation of the strategies needed to sound out words. We can offer your child targeted, one-on-one phonics instruction so that they can develop both a strong foundation for their reading skills and the enjoyment of reading that comes from mastering these skills.

Fluency

Fluency is the ability to read text with speed, accuracy and proper expression (National Reading Panel). In order for a reader to comprehend what they read, they must be able to read fluently. Therefore, fluency is an important foundational skill that takes beginning readers to the next level in their reading abilities.

We can offer your child targeted, one-on-one fluency instruction so that they can develop a strong foundation for their reading skills and the enjoyment of reading that comes from mastering these skills.

Why is fluency important?

Fluency is the bridge between phonics skills and reading comprehension. If a child struggles with fluency, they often stop to sound out words, read very slowly, and/or read in a monotone fashion. All of these problems make comprehension very difficult to attain, and children who struggle with fluency may not like to read because they find the process so tedious. Fluency skills are important to develop in every reader, both to attain comprehension and to make reading an enjoyable practice.

Comprehension

Reading comprehension is the level of understanding a person attains from reading a piece of text. There are different levels of understanding that a reader can achieve, from the most basic summary to the ability to make inferences based on the underlying principals of the text. As children develop their reading skills, strong comprehension skills become more critical. Reading comprehension is a skill that is needed to do well in all subject areas and standardized testing.

We can offer your child targeted, one-on-one comprehension instruction so that they can develop higher-level reading skills and the enjoyment of reading that comes from mastering these skills.

Why is comprehension important?

Comprehending a text is a basic, fundamental skill that is at the heart of why we read. Comprehension is a critical component of life; we must all read and understand signs, directions, letters, bills and other important documents. For children, comprehension is crucial to academic success in all subject areas, including math (word problems, step-by-step directions to problem solving), and on standardized tests.

If children struggle with reading comprehension, they may be unable to answer questions relating to the text they have read, have difficulty summarizing and/or have difficulty explaining ideas or pointing out important details from the texts. This often leads to frustration and a lack of motivation to read. Comprehension skills are an important skill to attain for every reader, both to provide a needed life skill and to make reading an enjoyable practice.
