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!!

Working with a private instructor can help your child's reading development by providing a personalized one-on-one learning environment. Finding instructors with the correct knowledge and communication skills to teach the important skill of reading comprehension can be tough. We are here to assist you in finding the right instructor to suit your child's personality and academic needs as well as your family's scheduling requirements.

Reading comprehension is one of the more important skills necessary when reading. When reading a text, your child should be able to look at various elements related to the English language such as phonics, how words sound, and connections between letters and words. Being able to understand vocabulary and the overall perception of the story or passage they are reading is another important component of reading comprehension. If your child doesn't understand what one part of a passage means, they can struggle with the overall story or theme. Working on comprehension skills can help your student avoid these kinds of issues.

What are the concepts and skills my student can learn during Reading Comprehension tutoring?

There are many reading comprehension topics or material that your child may be able to practice during private study sessions. Some of these include understanding the main purpose of the reading passage, being able to determine connections based on the text, the ability to draw conclusions, the ability to summarize the passage, or being able to connect related or supportive images with a passage. This is not a comprehensive list of the topics your child can study with Reading Comprehension tutors. Your child's personal instructor can take the time to determine his or her current skill set and create a plan for further developing these abilities. If your student is young and just starting out, reading comprehension sessions can ensure your child builds a firm foundation in reading. This is extremely important as it allows them to jump deeper into their studies as they grow older, which can help your child gain a better understanding of the material.

Reading Comprehension tutoring is useful for students at all ages and grade levels who are having trouble with this particular skill. The process of learning to read typically begins around preschool age when students are being read stories by a teacher or parent. After this, students will begin to learn the alphabet, learn to identify his or her name, and work on reading short words in kindergarten. By the time your student is in elementary school, reading comprehension becomes a big part of the school day. This is true for the rest of their educational journey, as well as in adulthood, since reading is useful in almost every aspect of life. If your child is in elementary school, a Reading Comprehension tutor can help with assessing our student's current skill level and determining where your student may be struggling. The one-on-one environment of a private study session allows the teacher to consider your child's specific areas of weakness. This allows the instructor to focus on those areas for study sessions. As an example, if your child is having problems with understanding compound words, his or her teacher can spend time dissecting the words and explaining to your child how to identify the different parts instead of reviewing material your child has already mastered. This makes study sessions more effective and productive.

Reading comprehension is a skill that comes up on many different tests. It is covered on exams that take place in a classroom setting as well as on standardized exams. Your child will be tested on reading comprehension from elementary-level unit tests all the way up to the PSAT. The PSAT Reading Test is an example of a standardized exam that specifically assesses your student's reading comprehension abilities. This is an hour long test with 47 multiple-choice questions requiring your student to read several different passages and answer questions. These questions can come from a number of different types of passages and your student needs to be able to read the passages, determine the author's purpose, come to conclusions about the passage, or understand words and phrases using context clues. These are all skills your student can practice with a Reading Comprehension tutor. Working with a Reading Comprehension teacher with experience in teaching this task can help your student make the most out of his or her study time. For example, as your student studies for the PSAT Reading test, his or her tutor can assist by reviewing the topics that will be found on the exam.

Reading comprehension is not a skill your child needs only for earning successful school grades. Having the ability to read and comprehend various passages can shape their entire future. Students who have strong reading comprehension skills open themselves up to the opportunity to go after almost any job they may want from doctor to politician to teaching. Nearly all careers, even entry-level ones, require employees to be able to read and understand what the text means. Lacking reading comprehension skills can make it hard to get a job of any kind. It can affect other areas of your life as well since reading is a huge part of daily survival. Working with an exceptional private reading instructor can help your student gain skills necessary to succeed in both inside and outside of the classroom.

How is working with private Reading Comprehension tutors different than other educational resources?

Working with private Reading Comprehension tutors is a unique experience due to the unique opportunities not found in typical learning environments. Working with a private tutor is useful because your student is getting personal attention. This can help motivate your student to apply themselves and work towards success. Private instructors can help create an environment that is favorable to learning with no distractions so your child will be able to use study time wisely. These abilities will help your student with any subject your student may study in the future, not just reading.

Additionally, working with a private instructor means your child is able to receive private instruction within a flexible schedule that makes sense for your family. Your child can attend school, sports, and any other after school activities and still be able to fit in extra instructional time.

Private instructors also have the ability to get to know your student's personal learning style, strengths, and weaknesses. With this information in mind, a private reading comprehension tutor can create lessons to be delivered in the method that your student best understands. For example, if your student is a visual learner, he or she can be provided with various educational videos to help with reading comprehension skills. If your student is an auditory learner, his or her instructor can deliver lessons using a lecture format. Perhaps your student prefers hands-on learning. A private instructor can create kinesthetic learning plans to assist your student with learning in a fun and interesting manner, such as using scrabble tiles to create words or stories. Since your student is the instructor's only concern, he or she will not have to sit through lessons using methods that don't work or make sense.

When you choose Varsity Tutors to connect you with a private instructor, your student can choose to attend face-to-face sessions using our Live Learning Platform or meet with the teacher in person. With the online option, live face-to-face study sessions can be accessed anywhere with a computer and high-speed Internet. This increases your chances of finding a knowledgeable tutor to suit your needs since the search is not limited to your immediate area. If you choose to meet with an instructor in person, you and your child can elect to meet at the time and location of your choice such as a local café, the public library, or in the comfort of your home. No matter which option you choose, you can be sure your child is receiving instruction from highly-qualified instructors with the right tools and resources to help your student increase his or her reading comprehension skills.

How do I sign my student up to work with a private Reading Comprehension tutor?

Reading comprehension is a critical skill in class and in life. Your child will need to use it in all sorts of daily activities, such as reading recipes, checking the weather, or being able to read the news.
