How can Phonics tutoring help you succeed?
Few subjects your child is currently studying likely feel more counterintuitive to you than phonics. If "see" and "sea" are spelled identically, how is your child supposed to distinguish them? The answer is that phonics is an oversimplification intended to try to help young children learn the basics of reading and writing. There are not enough English letters (26) to assign one to each of the language's 42 phonemes, or sounds, so kids are encouraged by phonics to understand the basics before learning about minor details such as "ph" making an "f" sound. If you're still confused, consider bringing in a private tutor to try to help your child understand phonics. Varsity Tutors can connect you with a qualified phonics tutor up to the task.
An experienced and skilled phonics tutor in San Jose, CA, could teach your child how to best use their study time. If they seem to get long vowel sounds and initial consonant blends, there is no reason to study them when the time is better spent on a potential area of weakness, such as deleted phonemes or odd word out problems. The private setting ensures that your student understands one concept before moving on to the next one. After all, your child is unlikely to notice a deleted phoneme if they are still trying to develop phonemic awareness.
