How can a Phonics tutor help you?

Is your student having trouble learning how to pronounce words and gain new vocabulary? A phonics tutor may be your student's key to unlocking success! Get in touch with Varsity Tutors for help finding a phonics tutor in Glenview, IL. These tutors are experts in phonics with several experience. They could help your student to become better at making connections between what they see in writing and what they hear in the world around them.

Children may find phonics difficult, but a strong foundation is critical to their future success in reading. Students must be able to decode, or sound out, words based on context clues, visual cues, and syntactic clues like sentence structure. Teachers may not have time to work on an individual basis with each and every one of their students. Some students may lack the engagement they need to be successful in phonics. But with a proper tutor, your student could be getting the one-on-one attention that they need to read more quickly and effectively!

For tonight's session I brought a stack of index cards with all the consonants, vowels and a lot of blends. We started by reviewing our short vowel sounds - The student did significantly better with the short "e" and struggled much less with short "i". I would put an ending such as -an and I would put consonants in front of it for the student to sound out and pronounce the word. The student clearly has been working on his phonics (they confirmed they are using the websites I suggested the last session and I gave them) and had no struggles with any short "e" words. I was extremely impressed! The student continues to struggle with short "i" and any short "i" blends, such as - it, - in often confusing the sound with short "e". I am very impressed with his quick progress. I paced our session differently today as well. We started with stretches and deep breathing and took short 2-3 minute breaks every 15-20 minutes to help him maintain his stamina. For our next session I asked his teacher to bring his sight word cards to we can work on those. We will continue to work on word families as well. I am working on borrowing kindergarten phonics books to use with him for reading so we can add that back into the sessions as well.

The student is an excellent reader. He is able to differentiate between sh/ch sounds when asked which sounds combine to form complete words. We also covered a wide range of r-blends.

Today, the student worked on phonics skills (identification of letters P, T, Y, W, B, D, G, H, J, L, M, and N and corresponding sounds) and isolating beginning sounds of words (basketball game). We also played a board game reinforcing syllabication. He earned his 10th sticker today and therefore picked a prize from the prize box!

Tonight we focused on -en and -et word families. The student was struggling a bit in the beginning to remember the correct sounds each word family makes, but he got it by the end. His reading fluency is improving a lot. I want to continue to focus on phonics and sight words.
