Receive personally tailored lessons from exceptional tutors in a one-on-one setting. We help you connect with in-home and online tutoring that offers flexible scheduling and your choice of locations. Varsity Tutors helps thousands of people asking, "How do I connect with the best tutors near me?"

If you're looking to get your student some assistance with his or her reading skills, Varsity Tutors can help connect you with Dayton reading tutors who can help your student build confidence and develop their abilities with the written word.

If your student is struggling with reading, you should both know that they are far from alone. In fact, across the United States, more than a few students are reading below grade level. Unfortunately, teachers in traditional school environments often don't have the time to help students develop the skills they need to become active readers. As other subjects enter the picture, it becomes difficult for students to build their comprehension skills. If that happens, it makes every other subject that much harder, making it easy for students to lose confidence and fall behind in their studies.

If that describes your student, you should know that there's nothing wrong with getting additional help, and Dayton reading tutoring can be a big part of that. We can help connect you with a qualified instructor who understands the struggles of reading at a young age and has the necessary skills to help students at all skill levels build on their abilities.

How can Dayton reading tutors near me help my student?

Working with a qualified instructor can go a long way toward helping a student develop self-confidence and improve their study skills. In traditional school settings, larger class sizes can mean that education must follow a teaching model that works for the majority. However, not every student learns the same way, and when students are forced to try to learn in a way that doesn't work well with their skills, the results often aren't satisfactory to either the student, the parent, the teacher, or the school.

Opting to work with Dayton reading tutors can fix that because they can put the focus solely on your student and the way that they learn best. Instead of trying to shoehorn your student's learning style and personality into one educational strategy, a private instructor can tailor the lesson plan to your student's needs, skills, and interests. Let's say that your student has shown a propensity for using flashcards to remember the definitions of new words. Your instructor can help by providing visual ways to study words, sentence structure, and other aspects of reading comprehension to make it easier for your student to get to know these concepts.

Maybe your student works best when he or she is able to read something aloud and discover words by pronouncing them. Working with the best Dayton reading tutors allows your student to hold a reading session with them and get immediate feedback on the definition of words that are difficult to understand. You can even have your student try learning in a different way than what they're used to in order to see if their issues stem from being taught in a manner that doesn't work well with their skills. If there's a strategy that you or your student think could be beneficial, your instructor will be happy to use that to guide the lesson.

Dayton reading tutoring can also help parents figure out the best ways to assist their student beyond the learning sessions. Your instructor can give you feedback on where your student shows high amounts of interest. This can help you find a way to nurture that interest and help build their reading skills at the same time. If your student lights up at the mention of sporting events, for example, you can try reading a story together about the University of Dayton's basketball team. You can let your student go over the details and determine the main idea of the piece. Maybe your student enjoys the beauty of nature and could try reading a book about trees. Students tend to respond well when skills are presented in a way that interests them, so if your Dayton reading tutors spot it, it could be the first step to making reading something that your student feels they can master.

What kinds of students can benefit from working with Dayton reading tutors near me?

The beauty of Dayton reading tutoring is that any student can benefit from spending extra time on their reading, regardless of their skill level. Perhaps your student already reads at the top of his or her grade level and isn't feeling challenged by the current reading assignments that their peers are absorbing. Rather than move them into a different reading class and force them to leave their friends, which can be difficult for a student, you can instead have them work independently with Dayton reading tutors and focus on more challenging books that will pique their interests and encourage them to further develop their academic skills.

That can be a big help because it keeps the student in control of their studies. In the classroom, a student is limited by the books that either the teacher or the school system thinks they should read. These books don't always match a student's interests, making reading a chore instead of an enjoyable activity. Dayton reading tutoring allows you to work with your instructor to select books and passages that your student will want to read. If there's a book that your student loves, you can ask your Dayton reading tutors to find similar books to it to encourage your student to keep going with discovering the joys of reading.

Plus, your student can do all of this at a time and place that's convenient for you, thanks to our Live Learning Platform. The Live Learning Platform allows your student to engage in Dayton reading tutoring from any location that has a reliable internet connection, such as the Woodbourne Public Library. All you need to do is have your student log in and connect with his or her instructor, and you'll be able to start your sessions.

The LLP gives your student the opportunity to get feedback in real time from Dayton reading tutors at any point in the lesson. Perhaps your student is reading a novel and comes across a passage that doesn't make a lot of sense to them. It's easy to pause and discuss the passage in question with your instructor while it's still fresh in your student's mind, allowing them to get a complete grasp of the point of what they're reading. If you're working on contrasting two different points of view, you can make each individual point to your instructor as it comes, either by video chat or by text.
