How can a Reading tutor help you?

If your child is having problems with reading, you may be thinking about finding them a private tutor. Varsity Tutors can help you locate a professional and passionate reading tutor in Long Island, New York. Whether your child struggles with figurative language, predictions, or inferences, a personal tutor can help them at a time and place that works best for your busy schedule. Your child can even work with their tutor online!

Long Island reading tutors can help your child work through their reading struggles in a one-on-one environment that allows them to feel comfortable asking lots of questions. Because they are the only pupil working with their tutor during sessions, their tutor can devise a customized lesson plan tailored just for your child's learning needs. They can skip over areas that your child may already understand (possibly vocabulary) and spend more time and energy focusing on the areas they really struggle with (perhaps idioms). The pace at which these areas are covered is also based on your child's unique learning needs. They may only be struggling with reading because their instructor is teaching the concepts in class too quickly for your child to really grasp or have time to ask questions. If this is the case, their tutor can slowly go through the topics again with your child. In the same way, their tutor can adapt their teaching style to match your child's learning style, whether that is visual, aural, or kinesthetic.

Session Summaries by Reading Tutors

Reading Tutoring review by Kalman in Long Island, NY
Today, the student and I spent some time going over his assignments for tonight. Most of this time was spent going through a reading comprehension assignment he had, which gave me a better understanding of what challenges he has with reading; namely that he tends to rush through longer words. We went over some strategies for working through long words and reading sentences for meaning. Additionally, we went over some strategies for adding numbers larger than ten.

Reading Tutoring review by Rebecca in Long Island, NY
Student A: read out loud from his book. He summarized the parts he read in between sessions. We practiced sample test questions in preparation for his exam this week. Student B: she read from her book with voice and emotion. We worked on homophones and plural words, extension from what she is learning in school.

Reading Tutoring review by Faeeza in Long Island, NY
Today we went over vocabulary for the student's upcoming quiz and discussed strategies for reading passage questions. We looked up a few words in the dictionary. He did well on the limerick we discussed over the weekend. For practice, I suggested that he write sentences using his vocabulary words.

Reading Tutoring review by Laura in Long Island, NY
Tonight we mostly focused on reading. The student and I worked through a school book entitled "Did it Fit." It was a level A book and he struggled with it his first go around. We sounded out unfamiliar words and read it a second time. The second time he did much better, but still struggled with some words. I noticed that at first sight he thinks the word "it" is the word "and." I also checked a list of high frequency words that was on his newsletter from school. He was able to identify about a third of the words. The student and I then played a matching sight word game. Every time you turned over a card you had to read the word on the card. If the two cards matched then you could move the number of spaces indicated on the cards. We played this game twice and I was happy with how fast he was catching on to the newer sight words. We then completed his number 20 homework sheet and practiced this weeks words (did, hid, kid) and his sentence "the kid hid the lid."

Reading Tutoring review by Michele in Long Island, NY
We went over the letters and their sounds. We did two worksheets for recognizing, saying and writing E-H. I explained the difference between vowels and consonants. We did a sheet where he had to identify the vowels. He did well. We did a worksheet where he had to match the vowel sound to a picture of something that began with that sound. He did fine. We did a worksheet where he had to identify words that began with b. He found the b words. We did a worksheet where he had to circle the word that went with a picture by identifying the beginning sound. He did very well. We practiced reading words that ended in at and ad. He did pretty well, with prompting.

Reading Tutoring review by Sam in Long Island, NY
We continued with the story the student began reading on Tuesday. He did an excellent job of identifying the small words and letter combinations, within larger words, that he was already familiar with. His improvement in this area has enabled him to increase the speed of his reading significantly when looking at sentence with many words from a similar family.
