Description

Was your child getting extra reading support at school? Is your child on a 504 Plan or an IEP to support reading fluency and comprehension? Does your child have dyslexia? If you've answered YES to any of these questions, working with a certified reading specialist in a small group may be a great option for you. It's also a wonderful way for your child to get the support they need while meeting other students with similar challenges to they do not feel so alone in their struggle.

Students with language-based learning differences require additional support with reading fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary knowledge. This weekly class can benefit students who need additional support with decoding skills, reading comprehension, vocabulary knowledge and understanding, and/or reading fluency.

Group A will focus on decoding words with digraphs, blends, and short vowel sounds along with high-frequency words and non-phonetic "red words" (examples: the, to, too, was, were, have, has, once, twice, etc.). In a 1/1 setting, students would typically work with a specialist for 60-90 minutes. In the group setting, 2 hours allows for students to take turns reading out loud and breaks are built into the schedule.

Because we are working in small groups, it's important to do a quick assessment that you can do at home in order to choose the right group for your child.

Home Assessment: Have your child read the passage below, just ONE time (no practicing so you can genuinely evaluate their ability) and time them for 1 minute. Count up the number of words they were able to read in that 1 minute along with the number of words they read incorrectly. Based on this score, choose the appropriate group.

Assessment Passage (Cold Read):

Fish have fins. Fins can be big. Fins can be little. Fins can be thin. The fins help fish swim. The tail fin helps fish. It helps fish zip fast. The top fin helps fish. It helps fish not tip over. The side fins help fish. They help fish stop.

If your child read 15-25 words and had 5-7 mistakes, this is the right group. If they read more words and made less mistakes, please see the assessments for group B or C.

There is a great sense of freedom and empowerment that comes from grasping a new concept, solving a tough problem, or articulating your thoughts effectively. Working as a tutor is attractive to me because I love to connect with people on an individual basis and share my passion for learning and teaching. Tutoring children in after-school programs and assisting adult inmates preparing to take the GED are among my most rewarding professional experiences. I hope to use my talents to help others tackle new challenges and feel empowered by what they can accomplish and learn.
