How can a Phonics tutor help you?

As reading is such a vital component of educational success, it is important that students excel at it. The study of phonics is a great way to get students on the right track in reading. Phonics considers the relationship of spoken sounds and how those sounds are written. It is an important building block of reading, and the understanding of it could lead to try to advances in decoding and word recognition, which can ultimately lead to reading comprehension and understanding of a text. A deep understanding of phonics is important not only in reading, but in all subjects and on tests such as the AzMERIT and the AIMS (Arizona's Instrument to Measure Standards) Science exam. If you want your student to be a fluid and confident reader, then connecting with a skilled phonics tutor could help instill the skills they need to succeed.

Session Summaries by Phonics Tutors

Catalina Foothills, AZ Phonics tutoring
I gave the student a reading passage that focused on using context clues to determine the meaning of difficult words. While he worked on that, I reviewed his writing assignment he worked on during the week. He remembered last week's comma lessons well and it showed in his writing. Afterwards, we practiced our spelling words and I taught him another comma lesson.

Today students read two passages and answered short answer questions to prepare for their exams. I noticed that students were engaged and working hard with getting the answers correct to get full credit. Students were given the opportunity to go over their work and make necessary corrections. Majority of students were able to correct their answers and gather the correct evidence to get full credit.

The student and I worked on revising his essay on Mercutio in "Romeo and Juliet," which is due tomorrow. He had a draft that needed work--specifically: 1) Adding quotations and other specific evidence from the play; 2) Eliminating wordiness; 3) Revising sentences and paragraphs, as well as adding a section on the importance of Mercutio's death in Act III. Since I first started working with the student in the fall, I've seen that he almost always knows the answers; the goal is getting him to express or write them. At the end, I stressed that any ideas about his topic need to be on the page so his teacher can read and evaluate them.

In this afternoon's session, I assisted the student with her informative essay. We looked through various topics, and then she chose one she felt comfortable with. Once she decided on her topic, we read some of the sources provided and then created an outline for the essay, including quotes and information from the sources. She had one of her three topic paragraphs finished by the end of the session, and felt confident the remainder of the essay would come more easily.
