A reading specialist enables your child to become a stronger reader through a guided, developmental approach based on reading research. The act of reading consists of a set of skills: Correctly pronouncing words, fully comprehending material read aloud and silently and clearly communicating thoughts on paper. In addition, critical thinking skills, language appreciation and a greater interest in reading and writing develop as reading skills develop. An assessment of your child’s reading strengths and weaknesses will be given initially to provide a starting point for reading lessons. During tutoring, I will assist your child in increasing his or her fundamental reading and writing skills in a way that is both interactive and inquiry-based and that leaves your child feeling successful.
