We've helped thousands of learners of all ages improve their reading and English skills including teaching English as a second language.

Do they have an IEP or 504 plan? (We have tutors that specialize in learning differences)

The tutor that was paired with my daughter was perfect and fits Bella's needs. Bella struggles with attention and has been on a 504 plan for years. The tools used, the interaction and flexibility are priceless. I was hesitant at first but now I'd do it again and I recommend Varsity Tutors!!

Private In-Home and Online Reading Tutoring

Receive personally tailored Reading 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.

If you have a student who is facing challenges with age-appropriate reading material, reach out to Varsity Tutors. We are here to connect you with top-notch Phoenix reading tutors. When your student takes part in traditional education in a regular classroom, they may not be getting the individualized attention they need to grasp a difficult concept. When they work with Phoenix reading tutors, however, they can spend as much time as required on a topic while working one-on-one with their instructor. This instructor can also help them build their confidence and suggest ways to improve their study sessions.

How is Phoenix reading tutoring different from traditional classroom education?

Individualized attention from Phoenix reading tutors can be very beneficial for students who are not comprehending a subject thoroughly. This private instruction isn't typically offered in a conventional classroom because the teacher does not always have time to work with every student who is struggling to understand a topic. In addition to this, the teacher usually has a set teaching style, and it may not be one that works best for your student.

Fortunately, with personal tutoring, your student can fully explore every reading concept that is causing them trouble. Phoenix reading tutors also don't have to stick with one teaching style. They can adapt their strategy depending on your student's unique strengths. For example, if you have a high school student who does best when learning visually, their mentor can offer them a marked-up document that shows how to analyze an author's choices concerning how to structure a text, order events within it, and manipulate time to create such effects as mystery, tension, or surprise. If you have a younger student who does best when they learn audibly, the tutor can lead discussions that cover how to blend and segment onsets and rimes of single-syllable spoken words. When a personal instructor takes your student's strengths into account when deciding which teaching strategy to use, it can help your student develop the necessary building blocks of reading that they can add to as they delve into more difficult topics.

Another way that Phoenix reading tutoring differs from learning in a regular classroom is that your student does not have to wait for other students to catch up to their progress before moving forward. For instance, if your sixth-grade student already understands how to determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative, connotative, and technical meanings, it may be unnecessary to continue to put a lot of energy into reviewing this concept. Instead, your student can use their time to tackle subjects they find more complex, such as citing textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly. Study sessions can become more productive when your student's mentor encourages them to work on improving their weakest areas first.

What benefits will my student have when working with Phoenix reading tutors near me?

At the start of the lessons with your student, Phoenix reading tutors can give them an assessment to complete. This practice test can provide them with information about where your student is strongest and where they still need to develop skills. Using this knowledge, the tutor can craft a flexible study session plan that specifically addresses your student's learning needs.

When your student takes part in Phoenix reading tutoring, their private mentor can ask them questions to get to know them better. These questions can be about the goals your student would like to achieve, their favorite hobbies, and how they view themselves academically. This knowledge can help the mentor come up with a lesson plan that incorporates aspects of your student's personality to help them stay more interested and engaged in the material they are studying.

Phoenix reading tutoring allows your student's private mentor to encourage and support them, which can influence the way your student comes to view difficult subject material. For instance, the tutor can help them keep a positive outlook even when they come across a challenging concept, whether in reading or their other educational pursuits.

Private instruction has several other benefits. Your student's mentor can give them interactive feedback as they study more complex subject material. This can help your student get information about how they're doing and also lets the instructor help them catch mistakes as they happen. The tutor can also help your student set reasonable goals to work toward in their lessons, which can help increase your student's confidence when they meet these milestones. Another benefit includes the way that your student's tutor can help them improve their studying techniques, such as building reading comprehension, developing their organizational skills, and working on improving their prioritization and time management capability.

How can I make time for my student to partake in Phoenix reading tutoring?

We want to make it as easy as possible for your student to participate in private instruction, which is why we do the work of finding a tutor who can meet either online or in person during a time that is most convenient for you or your student.

If you decide to have your student partake in online instruction, it can be even more convenient to get started because a long commute isn't necessary. Our Live Learning Platform gives your student a place to connect with Phoenix reading tutors. By making use of this platform, your student's online mentorship is just as effective as in-person lessons. To get started with Phoenix reading tutoring, your student only needs a connection to the internet and a compatible device, such as a smartphone, laptop, or tablet. Then it's as simple as logging onto the platform and getting started from a place where your student can focus on their lessons, such as at home or perhaps the Burton Barr Central Library.

There are several features on the Live Learning Platform that your student and their instructor can use to connect. The live video chat is especially important because it allows the instructor and your student to communicate fully. This is helpful when your student needs to interrupt a lesson so they can ask questions or request a more thorough explanation of a difficult concept. The digital whiteboard lets the instructor show your student examples of problems they may encounter on their reading homework or a test. The shared document editor is another excellent tool that enables the instructor to watch your student work in real time. This allows them to step in should your student make a mistake. Every study session that your student participates in is recorded on the Live Learning Platform. This way, your student can return to a previous lesson to solidify the knowledge that they went over with their instructor.

The student and I worked on Lessons 13 and 14 of the assessment. Both lessons focused on the "ir", "er", and "ur" blends in words. The student read the stories aloud and read from a list of words and then answered questions on the white board.
