How can a Phonics tutor help you?

Many of us take for granted that when we open a book, newspaper, or webpage, we will be able to decode the symbols on the page as written language and understand exactly what the written words mean. Part of this fluency is thanks to phonics, the process of understanding the sound associated with each written symbol. Phonics is a strategy crucial to fluent reading, because other strategies, like context clues and pictures, cannot help us to understand a full story. Phonics includes understanding of consonants and vowel sounds, and understanding how letters work when they are combined into full words. Phonics exercises may include flashcards, word games, rhymes, and spelling quizzes. Because letter sounds and the alphabet need to be memorized, phonics requires a good deal of repetition to become second nature. The Varsity Tutors educational directors can find you an expert phonics tutor in Arvada, CO, To help your child try to realize their potential as a strong reader.

The majority of English words can be decoded and "sounded out" using phonics rules. Until a student is able to look at words on a page and easily sound them out, they cannot focus all of their attention to actually comprehending the text. In other words, if a student is so busy trying to recognize words, they may not have enough mental energy left to understand what the words mean in the passage as a whole. We could help you find a professional tutor in Arvada to try to help your student build upon their strengths and eliminate their weaknesses in phonics.

Session Summaries by Phonics Tutors

Arvada, CO Phonics tutoring
I began this session with an introduction on the importance of all punctuation. However, I focused this particular session on comma usage and recognition. We discussed the various ways writers use commas in sentences. I explained why commas are used after subordinating clauses and before coordinating conjunctions. After explaining the various uses, we practiced a few sentences where there was a misplaced comma. She quickly identified where there was an error and how to correct it. In addition to comma usage, the student and I discussed the importance of style in writing. I explained why coherence, clarity, and conciseness are integral to every writer. She enjoyed learning the nuances of stylistic writing.

We went over the novels the student chose to use for the critical lens essay and we reviewed the strategies we decided on for the other exam (work backwards doing the essays first, time himself to 30 minutes for the listening, 1.5 hours for the critical lens, 1.5 hours for the linked passages, and an hour for the reading comprehension). I then gave him a full length timed exam. He paced himself well and seems much more confident about the exam. So far it looks good! While he was taking the exam I also made a trigonometry practice exam for his midterm next week, so that he could get a jump on that.

The student and I worked on writing a poem for his poetry class. It was obvious he is on top of his game. More than anything, he benefited from having someone with whom to generate and create ideas. I told him to think about rhythm when continuing to edit his poem. He built and revised his poem while I was with him.

Today we finished reading "Hooray, a Pinata." We discussed the book. I brought in magazines and had the student highlight words that he knew throughout the page. We then discussed coins and talked about the values and the names of the coins. He did quite well.
