How can Phonics tutoring help you succeed?

One of the many strategies used to teach reading is called phonics, which is the study of the relationship between letters and their sounds. It provides the basic skills needed to begin decoding sentences, a method commonly referred to as "sounding it out." As your child works to learn to read, they need to be given ample opportunities to practice with these skills to strive to ensure that they can become a strong reader. With phonics, your child is able to enter into their future classes with the ability to work out what they are reading by using these and other reading skills. You can strive to ensure that your child can develop the skills necessary to succeed in not just school, but life as a whole, by encouraging them to love reading. Varsity Tutors can find you a phonics tutor in Tempe, Arizona, who could help you help you help your child become an independent reader in no time.

We can match you with a phonics tutor in Tempe who is a skilled teacher and an expert in the subject. However, our educational directors take a great deal more into account while selecting a tutor for your child. They factor in your child's learning personality, study habits, proficiency, grade-level, goals, and curriculum, among other criteria that can play a role in your child's tutoring needs.

Session Summaries by Phonics Tutors

Tempe, AZ Phonics tutoring
The student and I met this morning to work on her research paper draft. I edited the introduction and the first two paragraphs in preparation for the meeting. I left the third paragraph so that the student could take a shot at editing after our initial conversation. The paper is heading in the right direction, and the student liked the process we used today. For the second half of the paper we'll do something similar. In general, she is continuing to work on word order, word choice, and grammatical clarity, but her analytical ideas, transitions, and summaries are solid.

The student and I finished up discussing comma rules, and worked especially on placing a pair of commas around nonessential elements of sentences. He turned in his essay over Hokusai and David, which was very good! Throughout the entire process, I helped him only a very small bit with his organization, and it was great this time! Now with his writing, we are only working on fine-tuning his mechanics and punctuation. The student then picked the topic for his next essay--Christopher Marlowe's "The Tragic History of Dr. Faustus," and we finished up by working on some ACT practice. He has two comma worksheets for homework, as well as completing an entire Language Arts passage for his ACT. If he has time for it, he should read Dr. Faustus on Project Gutenberg. It was another great session!

I spoke with the student about her background in writing, what kind of writing she currently does, how she writes, her strengths and weaknesses, and what she reads. We then read a news article together and began outlining it. I asked her to finish outlining the article and write a short review of it, including a summary and her likes/dislikes.

I gave the student a handout - Crowley's "Spare the Darlings," an essay on writing. I also gave him a profile of poet Lydia all as an example of profile writing and review. We had an extensive discussion about writing using sources from different genres.

The student did good work. She was tentative again to start but settled in well once I asked if she wanted us to read sounds together. She is making progress. She did better on her spelling test last week, and this week's words are similar, so I'm hopeful. If she can do well, it will help build her confidence.
