How can Phonics tutoring help you succeed?

English is one of the hardest languages in the world to learn because we have 42 individual sounds and only 26 letters of the alphabet. Phonics is the application of various speech sounds to written words. If your child is struggling, Varsity Tutors' educational directors can assist students in connecting with a tutor in Henderson who could potentially help them understand the concepts of phonics.

When learning to read, it is important that students learn more than one technique. Many students struggle because they rely heavily on identifying the context of the word and picture clues. It may seem frustrating at first, but learning phonics can be fun! If your child can remember and understand the 42 individual language sounds and unlock the code, there will be no word they can't read. Our educational directors enjoy helping students in Henderson, NV, find independent phonics tutors. Acquiring phonetic awareness is an exciting journey, and an enthusiastic tutor can strive to ensure that journey is a pleasant one. A skilled tutor will work to teach your child difficult topics such as consonant digraphs, final consonant blends, and phoneme counting.

Session Summaries by Phonics Tutors

Henderson, NV Phonics tutoring
Today we went over an old essay that the student received a 65 on and talked about what his teacher might have been looking for in a 100%. He told me that he felt very confident about the essay we went over last week. Then we moved on to SAT prep, specifically the reading comprehension parts of the critical reading section, using passages provided by the website. We focused on questions about making inferences. He did well with humanities, but had a harder time with literature and history, so we plan to work on that in more depth next time. We also reviewed techniques for reading short and long passages and how to make the most out of very little time for each question.

The student and I worked through the final draft of his paper on Pablo Neruda's "Tonight I Can Write." He has demonstrated significant progress in eliminating conceptual and verbal repetition in his essays. We discussed awkwardness in phrasing and ways in which to recast sentences to achieve better flow and comprehension. We discussed the use of quotations and evidence in supporting a paper's assertions and how to do so without creating a choppy feel. His paper has been polished up significantly, and I have every reason to believe that he will earn a high grade. He is currently reading through a large book for his next assignment, and we will work through that one as well when the expectations for it are clarified by the teacher.

The first tutorial session with the student was this evening. In this session, we discussed a social studies writing assignment. The student was specifically taught how to identify and highlight key words in a writing prompt and directions to ensure that all of the components of the prompt and assignment are addressed. We discussed how to make a checklist based on the highlighted information and how to use this checklist to assist with writing. The student was able to complete the first draft of the writing task and draw his invention (a component of the writing assignment). To assist him in developing a study and organization plan, the tutor reviewed the contents of the student's school notebooks and folders with him and drafted a supply list of items that will be used in the next session to organize the student's school work. Finally, the current math concept was noted, specifically as it relates to the student's needs and will be addressed in subsequent sessions. The student was left with a to do list that consisted of items to complete related to study and organization skills and the aforementioned social studies writing task in preparation for our next session and a due date for the social studies writing task, both on Thursday.

We covered poetry for the student's English class. His assignment was to compose three original poems that meet the requirements of stanza and rhyming structure that he has studied in his class. The student completed two poems during our session, and he will complete the third one before his English class tomorrow. His grade on his last essay indicated a significant improvement over his English grades from earlier in the semester.

The student is in AP English and reading "A Tale of Two Cities." Last week we prepared for her vocabulary quiz and she was very excited to report that she got an A. This week we prepared for her content/plot quiz. She's been keeping up on her reading, so that is great! But the material can be difficult to understand, so we went over the main points, found several online quizzes and summaries, and made sure that she understood it.
