Reading Tutoring Program -

Phonics

Phonics skills are the cornerstone of reading, enabling students to accurately sound out words they have not already memorized. Children will learn phonics skills such as letter recognition, letter formation, consonant sounds, short vowels, blends and diagraphs, long vowels, adjacent vowels, dipthongs, special vowels, compound words, syllabication, and roots and affixes. Through practice and mastery of these reading skills, students will have the reading help they need to move ahead with more complex materials.

Sight Vocabulary

Sight words, or words that children should instantly recognize by the end of 3rd grade, are taught. This reading skill aids in accuracy and fluency in both silent and oral reading.

Functional Vocabulary

Students gain the ability to recognize the meanings of words by learning reading skills related to the use of synonyms, antonyms, affixes, multi-meaning words, and appropriate word choices in the context of phrases, sentences, and paragraphs.

Comprehension

To help students learn how to derive meaning from what they are reading, four specific skill areas are focused on: information, generalization, organization, and inference. These four reading skills, when learned together, will dramatically raise your child's comprehension of written school materials.

Oral Fluency

Students are asked to read orally on a regular basis. Through repetition and practice, instructors provide reading help which solidifies accuracy, fluency and self-confidence in reading skills.

This was not only the best report card Jacob has ever received, it is the best report card that any of my boys has ever brought home from school. I am in a state of euphoria, to be quite honest with you...
