How can Reading tutoring help you?

Reading is one of the most important skills for a young student, no matter what field they plan to go into. It is a ubiquitous part of life in the United States, and your student may need to be able to read to do basic activities; even grocery shopping and ordering off of a restaurant menu alone are nearly impossible tasks without the ability to read. While basic reading skills are all that is necessary for most day-to-day activities, higher-level reading skills open paths to new opportunities and greater learning potential. Good reading abilities may make education in other subjects, especially science and history, easier down the road. This increases the likelihood of your student performing well in all of their classes, not just reading. Unfortunately, many students struggle when first learning to read. Contact our educational directors in Albany today to find reading tutors to try to help your budding reader address all of their problem areas.

Our educational directors enjoy helping students in Albany, NY, find independent reading tutors. They consider your young student's areas of interest, preferred learning style, and personality when finding the perfect tutor to suit their needs. Once connected with a tutor, your young student may likely be put through a simple diagnostic reading test, allowing the tutor to find any problem points in fluency or comprehension. From there, the tutor may create an individualized learning plan to correct the problem points and help your student excel.

Session Summaries by Reading Tutors

Albany, NY Reading tutoring
The student and I worked with her new magnetic tracing board with gusto! She wanted to trace every letter. When we were able to focus back on the task at hand, she practiced writing her name on the magnetic board to excellent results. We finished up our study of the alphabet by stamping out all our A, B, Cs then tracing over them while signing the alphabet song. There are a few more letters she's able to recognize out of sequence (O, Q, R, and Z). We finished up with some playdoh construction.

When making sentences with our vocabulary words during our matching game, they were all centered around his brother; they were quite good, too. After playing, I had him sort the words by beginning letter, and then match them to their definitions again, both of which he did easily and quickly. He read 94 words per minute during his timed test today, which is excellent! His expression during reading was very animated, and probably some of the best reading I've heard him do. He is very interested in our current book series and excited to follow the story. He likes to share his ideas about the characters and events, as well, which means he's connecting with the content nicely.

I worked with Student J alone first and we read 2 phonic Froggy books and then played Sight Word Bingo. He was much better at recognizing words as he was more focused. I then worked with Student S and we read a story together. After, we wrote our own stories so she could practice writing sentences instead of just words. She did very well.

The student correctly identified 41/41 of the 3rd grade sight words, finally reaching 100%! When we went back to the 2nd grade list for review, he got 42/46 correct. He read three emergent texts with little to no support. We played the My Word game and he wanted to spell words associated with beverages.

The student and I finally got to read the Halo novel, which is both of subject matter he finds interesting and is about the right reading level for him. Since he's started reading excitedly, I have encouraged him to really focus on reading the words on the page, as he has a habit of swapping in similar words rather than reading exactly what is written. His comprehension seems to be getting stronger and he is curious about words.
