Reading is an important skill that effects grades in nearly all subjects. Math word problems, social studies and science subjects all require a student to read well. Excellent reading comprehension skills are critical to achieving high scores on college entrance exams and are important for most professional careers as an adult. So it is essential that your student learns to read well at an early age, and then stays at or above grade level while progressing through the school years. If you are looking for a way to improve a student’s reading skills, contact us about Education One’s reading tutor service.
We’ll start by giving your student a free Prism Academic Assessment, to diagnose your student’s weaknesses in reading, writing, and math. The report will provide insights into exactly which parts of reading your child need to improve, to catch up and get ahead, and will include a personalized plan for study and success.
Attending classes at Education One can also be personalized to fit your busy schedule. We have a reading tutor available after school, during evenings, and on weekends. Some students may attend tutoring several times per week, while other just once or twice, depending on their individual need.
We hire only the best reading tutors after testing them extensively. We also make sure they are friendly and enjoy working with children. Once we’re sure we have the right person to be a reading tutor, we train them in our teaching methods and curriculum.
Our reading tutors are great for students working toward a better score on a standardized test like the ACT or the SAT. These tests include passages of varying lengths that students must read and understand well, as they are paired with sets of reading comprehension questions. Many students struggle with this portion of the exam because they lack the necessary reading comprehension skills. They take too long to draw important information from the text or they are unable to discern which information is important.
A reading tutor can help students improve their reading comprehension skills. With the proper guidance and practice materials, students should be able to raise their test scores considerably. This improvement in reading comprehension has benefits beyond test scores, however. This helps students in every subject that involves reading. It can even help students comprehend the material in textbooks better, which opens up the possibility of a better understanding of difficult concepts in every class.
Our reading tutors are fun and engaging so that even students who deem themselves nonreaders can improve their skills. One of the best ways to improve reading and writing in students is to get them reading for fun. We encourage students to read books that fit their interests. When students start reading for fun, we often see improvement in their vocabulary and overall fluency. Students sometimes even form grammar instincts after consistently reading.
Reading is one of the most important aspects of a child’s education. A strong set of reading skills can help a student go far, not only in their studies but their careers as well. Our tutors are invested in helping students develop a set of skills that can last a lifetime. If you are interested in our reading tutor service, call or visit our office for more information. We look forward to hearing from you!
