How can a Reading tutor help you?

As your child has grown, you've probably settled in with them and a book and read them a story countless times throughout the years. As your child gets older though, you'll likely want to see that they enjoy reading, or, at the very least, do not struggle to read. If you're concerned about your child's skill in reading, Varsity Tutors' educational directors can help you connect with a professional reading tutor in Beaverton, OR.

Teachers use a variety of techniques to teach reading. There are five pillars of reading instruction, which, when all connected, help a youth to read. These pillars are phonemic awareness, or the ability to hear and identify phonemes; phonics, or the link between how letters sound what the letters can do. Phonics is important to decoding. Fluency is the ability to read accurately. Vocabulary is obviously important, because if children don't know words, they can't understand them as they read. The final pillar is comprehension, which is simply putting the other four pillars all together. Your child may benefit from one-on-one attention from an independent tutor who has the time to fully concentrate on their work with your daughter or son.

Session Summaries by Reading Tutors

Beaverton, OR Reading tutoring
I worked on grammar, spelling, and phonics. I also included a little Math that the student needed to work on such as counting but majority of the session was focus on writing. He was a little hesitant at first but as we went on, he became a little bit more focused. The incentive I used to help him stay on task was a game on the iPad. Every time he completed a reading or math assignment in his booklet, he played on the iPad for one minute. Once the minute was up, he worked on his assignment and this time method strategy continued until the session was completed successfully.

Today's session included some organization. We discussed the importance of keeping our week neat. This includes keeping homework papers flat - not crumpled or ripped. This provides an impression to his teachers regarding his effort and level of care for his work. We also referred back to his not writing down his assignments. The student now has a reading log. I recommend that he writes as he reads or right after - while it is fresh in his mind. We wrote down some goals: keep papers flat as mentioned above, slow down by thinking of each letter as he writes, and write down daily assignments.

We worked on spelling and penmanship worksheets. The student improved his letter formations, spacing, and legibility. He read a short story and answered three questions, and then we finished off with continuing to read his chosen Goosebumps book aloud.

We went over math homework and reading. The student did all the math by herself. I rarely had to help her. The reading was a little more challenging, but she understood the stories completely. We concentrated on process of elimination when answering questions from a passage.

We began our lesson by working on the student's history homework. He had a few reading comprehension questions on the Renaissance from his school book. I explained the questions, and we talked through the answers together. I also explained some of the context from the reading that he struggled with. After finishing his history homework, we then moved to vocabulary. I had a list of vocabulary words with definitions that we worked through. We discussed the words and their definitions. I then asked him to give an example sentence using each of the vocabulary words. We spent more time giving examples for words he was unfamiliar with. We will continue working on vocabulary, especially using context clues to figure out the meaning of words.

The student read chapter 22 of TKAM and read and notated three important details per page. He then chose the most important detail out of the three, and placed it on a sticky to place on the page. We found two examples of literary terms (alliteration and hyperbole) in the book. We also worked on his "Raising Children" paper outline. Lastly, I read 3-4 pages of chapter 23 of TKAM to him while he took notes. His homework is to finish and annotate chapter 23 of TKAM, go back to chapter 21 and annotate it (very important chapter), and read the short story "Lamb to the Slaughter," and practice chunking the text.
