How can a tutor assist you in conquering Reading?

Does your child struggle with reading? Whether their issue is with antonyms, synonyms, or decoding, a tutor can help your child with various reading concepts. One route to achieving this is finding a private tutor for your student. Varsity Tutors can help you in connecting with a private, dedicated reading tutor in Chicago, Illinois, who can work with your child either online or in person. Their tutor can help them study idioms, homophones, homographs, suffixes, and roots.

Reading is a skill that your child will need throughout the rest of their life. A private Chicago, Illinois, reading tutor can work with them individually, helping them study concepts they find difficult. This individual attention from their private tutor allows the tutor to get to know your child's interests and personality. They can then incorporate these personal interests into reading lessons, keeping your child engaged in the lesson. By relating topics, such as characters, to a friend or favorite cartoon, your child's tutor can help them learn to love reading, which is often linked to excelling in the subject. There are thousands of books at varying reading levels to choose from, and your child's tutor can pick out stories specifically geared towards their interests and at their reading level. This, again, can keep them engaged and enjoying their lessons. By keeping your child engaged, their tutor is encouraging them to continue practicing and improving.

Session Summaries by Reading Tutors

Reading Tutoring review by Alyssa in Chicago, IL
When first starting with the student, I was admittedly worried about his ability to retain sounds and letters. However, he did much better today, being able to recognize A-B-C in various orders rather than repeating their sounds via the alphabet song. He also remembered words that started with those letters, which he had trouble doing previously. We read 'Poppleton' and 'Clifford's Family' together, and I had him point out and count all the A-B-C's he saw on the page. I then introduced Dd to him, and had him fill in the missing 'd' from words like dinosaur and dog. We'll add in Ee next week.

Reading Tutoring review by Audrey in Chicago, IL
We reviewed sight words previously missed. Practiced until firm. Did a fluency check using passage that accompanied story. Read 96 wpm, increasing from previous 2 measures. The student and I took turns reading every other page, "Marcus Loses Patches". He did an excellent job reading. Completed answering comprehension questions. Excellent job with short answer. 80% on multiple choice. Practiced reading words with phonograms /oa/ and /ow/ (long o sound).

Reading Tutoring review by Jenny in Chicago, IL
This was another great session! the student and I reviewed over 60 sight words (even introducing larger words like "important" and "group") by playing hide and seek with them. We then read two chapters together in his Magic Tree House Book and he again read complete sentences when I stopped and pointed at words I knew that he would know. Next session, we will focus on cursive.

Reading Tutoring review by Gwen in Chicago, IL
The student worked on organizing his ideas to compose a piece of writing based on a reading assignment. We went from notes to a first draft, to a final piece. He showed a good ability in placing things where they belonged. We also worked on sight words for writing.

Reading Tutoring review by Richard in Chicago, IL
Continued focus on reading with the student. We read a more challenging story book from his school (About an uncle with a blue tie) and stopped at longer words, breaking them into smaller sounds. We reviewed more common word endings. In the future we will look at "sh" and other consonant blends to give him some practice with them. We played our card game to increase our vocabulary, also breaking these words down into smaller pieces.

Reading Tutoring review by Conor in Chicago, IL
The student and I worked on some more reading and basic writing skills today. He created another Calvin and Hobbes comic strip, and we worked to write realistic dialogue and fitting action for the strip. We went over the spelling words he was given this week, and went over the vocabulary words he has had trouble with recently. He said he only got 1 word wrong on his spelling test, an improvement from the week before.
