How can Phonics tutoring help you succeed?

One of the primary building blocks of reading ability, phonics is the relationship of spoken sounds and the way they are written. In order to be a successful reader, students must have an understanding of phonics. Strong skills in phonics lead to strong decoding skills, better word recognition, and ultimately better fluency and comprehension. Reading is important in every subject matter. As such, phonics plays an important role in academic success of any type. Phonics also features prominently on the AzMERIT and AIMS, or Arizona's Instrument to Measure Standards, Science exams. If you want your student to be able to achieve their academic goals, then connecting with a qualified phonics tutor is a great place to start.

Session Summaries by Phonics Tutors

Scottsdale, AZ Phonics tutoring
Today, I was able to view the student's final third grade report card and made notes of areas in which she received a "P1" grade in order to help focus future lessons on areas that need remediation. The student completed her rough draft of her "All About Me" writing, during which I noticed that although she can verbalize great ideas, she has difficulty focusing and attending to tasks. This rough draft was typed on the computer, and will be printed for next session in order to practice the writing process and edit the piece for final drafting. We worked through some Read Theory sentence completion activities, in which the student worked well and independently. For extra practice, I left the student another sentence completion page to work on and a hamburger graphic organizer and an assignment to write 15 minutes a day on whatever she wants, and have a rough draft completed by Monday's session.

We began writing the essay, "What Would I Do If I Had a Million Dollars". We talked about answering the question in the thesis and giving a good general background in the introduction to introduce the thesis. We also focused on keeping the subject in the proper point of view depending upon the title or prompt.

We read over materials for the next paper, which is to analyze a fairy tale, and then we discussed strategies for organizing the paper. We decided what the thesis statement should say, and I assigned the student to write, by Monday, an introductory paragraph with thesis statement as well as one topic sentence for each body paragraph.

The student and I had a good session today. We mostly looked over his recent English assessment performance, and we discussed some of the major grammar points that he could improve on. We discussed some of the main strategies for the English section and then did some practice. Before our next meeting, he will be working on an essay for me and some more grammar work in the meantime.

Today we focused on grammar and writing. We reviewed nouns, pronouns, adjectives, and verbs. In addition to this, we learned about articles and adverbs. Adverbs were a little difficult at first, but as the session progressed the student became more successful with them. We practiced applying these grammar concepts to her writing with a focus on adding descriptive details that would engage the reader. I left reading passages, grammar practice, writing, and a chapter book for the student to complete independently until our next session.

The student's mom asked that we alternate between working on her reading comprehension and writing, so we worked on a letter about geodes during this session. After she got her ideas on paper with a graphic organizer (a web), we worked on writing a letter to her little sister that would catch her attention and have a variety of sentence structures. She did very well!
