How can a Phonics tutor help you?
Phonics is an essential skill children need to understand in order to learn how to read and write. Phonics builds a child's understanding of the relationship between sounds and letters. Once they grasp that different letters represent different sounds they can begin to sound out - or "decode" - written words. They also use phonics to take the words in their head and spell them out on paper. Reading and writing skills are important for essentially everything your child does later in life. Varsity Tutors can find your child a tutor in Montgomery County, PA, who is well versed in teaching phonics.
The study of phonics requires students to learn the letters of the alphabet and the sounds they represent. Once they have understood the symbolic meanings of letters, they can to decode words, speaking the sounds the letters represent in the order written. During this part of the process they also learn how to blend the sounds contained in a word, so it is pronounced as a single verbal unit. This process can be painstaking, requiring a student to repeatedly decode words from a simple, controlled set of words. The repetition helps your child build proficiency in the basic decoding process. The vocabulary is slowly expanded over time, growing in complexity and introducing new blending concepts. Our educational directors in Montgomery County will find your child a phonics tutor who might help them quickly gain an understanding of how to comprehend written words.
