How can a Reading tutor help you?

Reading is a highly important subject for all students to take. That does not mean it is always easy, however, for everyone to comprehend the material. There is much more to reading than simply putting sounds to letters. If your son or daughter is struggling in their reading class, they can work with a tutor in order to get back on track. Varsity Tutors can match your student with an enthusiastic reading tutor in Lowell, MA, who will encourage them to aim higher.

A private reading tutor in Lowell can keep your son or daughter from falling behind in their class. They will assess their needs and determine the best course of action for each tutoring session. This might mean working a small amount on test prep and quizzes and spending the rest of the time focusing on topics that your child struggles with most. Predictions, genre, setting, phonemic awareness, and story mapping are all important topics related to reading. Whichever ones your student needs the most work on will be what their tutor focuses on during their time together.

Session Summaries by Reading Tutors

Reading Tutoring review by Joseph in Lowell, MA
The student and I started off with his weakest ACT section, the English section. We covered some general advice and example questions before tackling a practice English section together. "Weakest" is a relative term; the student knows what he's doing for the most part and makes few mistakes. Those mistakes, also, tend to be easily correctable, so that will likely be my focus in our next sessions. Next week we will look at his second-"weakest" ACT section, Reading.

Reading Tutoring review by John in Lowell, MA
The student and I read more from the book he had two copies of, with me correcting his errors as we went along. He seemed to be reading more fluidly this time, and was more comfortable with his pronunciation. He knows most of the words he encounters - it's just that sometimes he reads more slowly than he would like to. I told him to keep trying to read at least a little bit every day, and we will pick up from where we started in the book next week.

Reading Tutoring review by Kathryn in Lowell, MA
The student  had completed Practice Test #3 before our session, so we went through her answers and I scored her test. She scored 150 points higher on both the reading and the writing sections than she did on the first practice test that she took! She is showing great improvement. The writing section seems to still be giving her  a little  trouble, especially the improving sentences part. I wrote up a little cheat sheet of some of the most common errors in those (subject-verb agreement, adverb-adjective agreement, noun-pronoun agreement, etc.) to keep in mind while going through that section. We also added a few words to her vocab list as we went through the test. I reminded her to write a little summary sentence at the end of each of the comparative reading passages to help her remember what they were about and also to help clearly compare and contrast the two. For next session she is going to complete Practice Test #4. We are less than a week away from her SAT, and she is doing great!

Reading Tutoring review by Brittany in Lowell, MA
I met the family at their home for my first tutoring session with the student. First, I learned about her and her experience in high school. She is interested in dance and choreography, but still need to pass her basic classes, including biology. She just had a 'six week' exam over photosynthesis, cellular respiration, DNA structure and replication. I reviewed DNA structure with her to make sure she understood it before introducing new material about DNA transcription into RNA and RNA translation into proteins. I quizzed her every so often to make sure she was understanding the material I was presenting. She did well on the quizzes and they were helpful for me to figure out how she processes the material in her mind. Next week we will go over her 'six week' exam and the new lecture notes. I will continue to meet with her on Wednesdays and Sundays for an hour and a half each session.

Reading Tutoring review by Travis in Lowell, MA
The student and I reviewed permutations, combinations, and the binomial theorem. Because word problems involving permutations and combinations can be abstract, we talked about different strategies to approaching the problems, such as tree diagrams, listing, and solving simpler problems in order to identify patterns. The hardest part for him was determining whether or not to apply the formula for a permutation or a combination, but after some practice, he improved.

Reading Tutoring review by Kim in Lowell, MA
Worked with the student to focus his writing. I had him pick a topic, pick 3 things to write about regarding that topic, and then on three individual worksheets, had him write a topic sentence, supporting sentences, and concluding/transitional sentences so that he had an entire essay at the end of the session and it was more focused and direct. Also suggested that he listen to audio textbooks so he could hear what academic writing sounds like because he is very obviously a person who learns best by hearing (he talked himself through all three of the paragraphs he wrote). Super smart kid. I think we made a lot of progress.
