My son has ADHD, Anxiety, Dyslexia AND a learning disability. He's always attended private schools for learning disabled children, but when we had to move, public school and an IEP were the only option. I called VT in desperation because he was failing across the board and was so distressed. I know he just needed the right environment in order to thrive. After a couple tearful sessions with the VERY PATIENT tutor, my son began to "get it". Once he did, there was no stopping him!

If you're looking for additional assistance in helping your students with the six components of reading, Varsity Tutors can connect you with Philadelphia reading intervention tutoring. Some students learn and think differently, and as a result, may struggle with reading under conventional instruction. This can impact all areas of academic performance and cause no small amount of frustration for students and parents alike. Working with a private instructor can help them develop the necessary skills to improve performance and alleviate some of this frustration. Our educational consultants can answer questions about what this tutoring can look like, what benefits can be derived, and how to get started.

How can a Philadelphia reading intervention tutor near me work with my student?

Reading challenges can take many shapes and forms, which can make identifying how to best assist your student difficult. Generally speaking, there are six key components that go into reading: Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Fluency, Vocabulary, Comprehension, and Spelling. A student who is struggling with reading may be having trouble in one or a combination of these areas, but Phonemics, which pertains primarily to sound relationships, and Phonics, which relates largely to spelling and sound relationships, are often the cornerstone which feed into the understanding of each other piece of the puzzle. Understanding how these pieces fit together, though, is not an easy task.

Philadelphia reading intervention tutors can help. Thoroughly vetted by Varsity Tutors to ensure they have experience and expertise in research-based instructional strategies, they can evaluate your student's strengths and weaknesses in order to develop a custom lesson plan which incorporates techniques and tools which cater to your student's learning style. Using multi-sensory techniques such as air writing, sandpaper letters, shaving cream, and more, a Philadelphia reading intervention tutor can introduce tactics which stimulate memory and engage the senses in a way that encourages focus. They can teach strategies like "whisper reading" that helps with articulation, focus, and fluency, and can be utilized in the classroom without causing disruption. Because these professionals realize how important it is to loop parents into the process, they can work with you to help you understand the work being done, too, offering tips on how to keep the lessons going long after the session is over.

Many students with reading challenges already receive support in the classroom, and Philadelphia reading intervention tutors know how crucial it is to maintain consistency between those supports and the support they offer in their sessions. To do so, they can open a line of communication with your student's team at the school, keeping in contact about your student's progress. They can also serve as an advocate for your student if need be. If, for instance, the school is using a specific system like the Wilson Reading System, but your private instructor is seeing results by using a program like Wired for Reading, they can make the case for switching things up in the classroom.

What are the benefits of having my student work with a Philadelphia reading intervention tutor near me?

Philadelphia reading intervention tutoring is beneficial because it provides one-on-one attention that may not always be available in the classroom. Teachers have to split their time among twenty or more students, and even with an IEP or 504 plan in place, aides often have to juggle a heavy caseload of students with a variety of learning differences. With Philadelphia reading intervention tutoring, your student gets undivided attention. These sessions are all about giving your student the best possible shot at success. If this means rearranging the lesson plan to slow down and make sure they thoroughly understand a concept before moving forward, then that's what will happen. These sessions provide a safe place to make mistakes and ask questions. Because they always take place on an individual basis, your student gets a chance to get to know their tutor and build trust. This can provide an opportunity for building confidence too as their instructor offers positive reinforcement for both effort and achievement.

Philadelphia reading intervention tutoring is also a flexible educational option. Your student can select a setting that allows them to focus, whether that means studying in their bedroom or working from somewhere like the Parkway Central Library. The Live Learning Platform allows them to connect with their instructor using a variety of interactive tools. Video chat means they interact just as they would face-to-face. The virtual whiteboard lets their instructor help them visualize different ideas. Document sharing helps you and your student pool resources for future reference. All sessions are recorded, so both of you can go back and revisit the lessons long after the session has ended.
