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!

It can be hard for a parent to watch their child struggling with writing and reading skills, so call Varsity Tutors to be connected with a qualified Washington DC reading intervention tutor. Reading and writing are ubiquitous across every school subject, so it is important that students develop those skills on pace with their classmates. Ideally, intervention takes place early in a child's development, but Washington DC reading intervention tutors can assist students at any stage in their academic progress.

What reading skills can a Washington DC reading intervention tutor near me teach my student?

The six key components to reading are phonetic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, reading comprehension, and spelling. By learning to read, your child is gaining an important tool to become a lifelong learner. Because it's so integral, early intervention can be essential.

Phonetic awareness serves as the bedrock for a student's reading abilities. They begin by using phonemes to form syllables and words, like building blocks. After this comes phonics, where the focus shifts to the relationship between sounds and the letters, or letter combinations, that produce them. Washington DC reading intervention tutoring can assist your student in developing these skills, deploying multiple teaching strategies based on your child's particular learning style. If your child is more of an auditory learner, for example, this could mean an emphasis on reading out loud. For more visual learners, things like colorful graphics or flashcards may be helpful.

Because they can be learned both directly and indirectly, spelling and vocabulary tend to go together. Indirect learning happens everywhere, as students begin to read the words around them. Direct learning is more purposeful, more structured, and occurs through the guidance of teachers in the classroom or a Washington DC reading intervention tutor. If a student is drawn to books about animals, then the spelling and vocabulary lists might contain words like species, or habitat. Spelling and vocabulary are each improved by reading, so the more reading a student does, the better off they will be.

A student is considered fluent in reading when they can read out loud with the speed, accuracy, and expression appropriate to their age. And when they can understand the entirety of a given text, as opposed to deciphering each word individually. Instead of sticking to a predetermined list, as often happens in a classroom setting, Washington DC reading intervention tutors can coach your child towards fluency by selecting readings that they will be interested in.

What are the main benefits of Washington DC reading intervention tutoring?

Learning to read and write in group settings is not going to be entirely effective for every student. The personalized attention and one-on-one environment provided by private instruction can serve as a valuable addition to a traditional classroom. At school, your child's teacher may have a set curriculum they must follow, one that doesn't provide a lot of flexibility in terms of pacing. When working with a reading intervention tutor, the pace is determined by the student's needs. Whatever the challenge - a specific letter combination, for example - your child's instructor can make that their focus, and work towards addressing it in creative ways so that your child is encouraged to stick with it.

When a student struggles with reading and writing skills, they can often act out in class as a result. Because Washington DC reading intervention tutoring takes place in a customized learning environment, your student can develop a rapport with their instructor, and develop trust, knowing they are working with an adult who understands what they are going through. Private instruction allows your student to step out of their comfort zone - in a safe environment where it is okay to make mistakes - because each mistake can become a teachable moment. Over time, working collaboratively with an experienced and caring professional, your child can become more confident, and engage more in class without fear of saying the wrong thing.

Available through both in-person and online options, Washington DC reading intervention tutors provide the same quality instruction either way. Online sessions have the benefit of added convenience since you can cut down on the commute. As long as they have access to a compatible device and a reliable internet connection, your student can log in from the comforts of home. Or, if a distraction-free setting is preferable, they can opt for someplace else, like Mt. Pleasant Library for example. Our Live Learning Platform includes a number of helpful features, like video chat, so your student can interact with their instructor in real time. A shared document editor and a virtual whiteboard allow them to work collaboratively on writing and reading exercises, while also making it possible for your child's instructor to give immediate feedback. Additionally, every session is recorded, and you and your child have access to those recordings. This means that anything that is covered becomes a resource you can use at some later date.
