How can a tutor assist you in conquering Phonics?

Is your child struggling with concepts of phonics such as syllables, phonological awareness, decoding, or blending? If your child is having issues with these phonics fundamentals or other areas of the subject, then assistance from outside the traditional classroom may be just what they need to get back on the right track. Learning phonics is very important to your child's development as a student, which is why it is so important to provide them the help that they need. For providing your child with assistance that could enable them to understand their phonics course in Hampton, VA, call our educational directors.

Varsity Tutors can locate a phonics tutor in Hampton who can complement your child's learning style. A tutor can determine just how your child learns best through assessing their needs. Once a tutor gets to know your child's individual learning style, they can then implement an individualized study program that is efficient and productive. Your child won't waste any time going over anything they already know. Instead, a tutor will focus on those areas of phonics that your child finds difficult. As your child strengthens these problem areas, they could gain new confidence in their abilities.

Session Summaries by Phonics Tutors

Hampton, VA Phonics tutoring
Today, the student needed help writing an opinion paragraph about whether or not grizzlies should be kept in zoos. He struggled a bit with differentiating between facts and opinions, but we worked together to clarify this for him and he eventually did well with writing the rest of his paper. He also needed help studying for a science test he had the next day on plants and photosynthesis. He seemed to have understood the concepts well enough and even got most of the questions right on the homework review at the end of the chapter.

The student and I had a very lively session today, teasing apart the nuances of Hamlet, the play. She had a project to complete, so we worked on that, while going through the play scene by scene, and expressing the story lines in our own words after reading. Everything from the fate of Hamlet's madness, to what Ophelia really thought was on the table! We gave our characters life by judging them by their motives rather than by their actions alone. We ended up grudgingly liking Polonius, who was nothing more than a caring father doing his job; though Queen Gertrude will never be praised, we humanized her and understood why she would do what she did (by comparing history of high bred women and women in general in this time period, and what marriage meant then, versus now). The project asked her to follow Hamlet and only his interactions for an entire act, and so, we created a timeline of sorts not to miss anything. I loved the brain teasing discussions, and she was very interested and enthused about our subject. All in all, it was a good session, and she planned out how she wanted to tackle the play in its entirety again (to understand it better).

The student and I have been working on phonemic awareness lately. We also worked on studying for her state test, the SAT, coming up soon. We went over some packets from school. We also went over sight word flashcards; she is getting better at them. We then did a couple FCRR activities for phonemic awareness. We then read her book using the echo reading strategy so that she can hear a fluent reader and what the words should sound like.

The student worked on reading and writing this session. We went over the assignment he did for homework, correcting for tense and punctuation errors. He needs to remember to go back and proofread his work. We also worked on two reading comprehension worksheets and I assigned him a short paragraph based on the Bruce and the Spider reading.

Today we finished our lesson on personal narratives. We read three more different examples of personal narratives, each by a student (ranging from 5th to 9th grade), and evaluated the strengths and weaknesses of each, particularly good examples of voice and descriptive writing, and what things could be improved and how. She then reviewed her own paper, and we concluded by peer-reviewing each other's paper for additional editing/revision practice. I feel she has developed very well as a writer. For the next lesson I plan to focus on scientific writing, such as presenting research or findings in a factual manner.

Being the first session, the student and I took time to become acquainted with one another by sharing likes, hobbies, and academic interests. He loves to read and shared an extensive list of novels he has read; he is quite accomplished in the list of well known novels he has read! He also shared that he enjoys robotics, fencing, and mathematics but struggles mainly with ELA. In order to assess his needs, he spoke about what makes ELA difficult for him. He explained that he often feels the projects he completes for ELA are not really as good as he would like them to be. These projects include a lot of essays and responses to literature they read in class. He shared a short essay he wrote recently requiring him to pick a quote and analyze it while also providing examples. After reading the essay with him, goals were established based upon areas that he could improve upon. These include: organizing and structuring his essay to stay on topic, ensuring correct verb agreement in his sentences, and using more colorful language to add variety to his sentence types. In order to begin improving his writing, I spoke with him about using a specific structure for response essays. We used the strategy of "RACER" to edit a paragraph from the essay he previously read aloud. He competently understood the process we were working through, but struggled to put his words on paper in a sequential manner that stayed on topic. He persevered and edited the paragraph to be more concise and remain on topic to the original prompt. He agreed that he would like to work more on this process and to refine his writing skills. Overall, his fluency and competency of the English language is not the concern. It is evident that he is very well read and a bright young man. I very much enjoyed discussing the literature that he liked to read and even those pieces of literature he did not like as much. We spoke about the plans for future sessions to be focused on improving his writing overall but also that I see value in giving him the extra push in vocabulary and more advanced literature. Therefore, I shared with him a couple websites where he could play games to bump up his vocabulary, and told him that it would be beneficial to read more from the typical Cannon of western literature. I recommended that he watch a film of one of Shakespeare's works, and then read the text. I hope that we can use a bit of our time in the future to look at some traditional texts that we have both read, and begin to write about them in a way that will help him be successful in all of his academic classes and also to begin to create a schema for the SAT and other standardized tests that he wants to be very successful on. I very much enjoyed my time with him and cannot wait to see his improvement in writing!
