The goal of reading is to be able to understand written text (aka: comprehension).
There are 4 skills that need to be intact for comprehension to happen:
- Phonological Awareness (sounds),
- Phonics (letter/sound match),
- Fluency (speed/prosody),
Often times when students struggle with reading they do not have a solid foundation in phonological awareness and/or phonics.
The goal of my program is to identify reading needs, through assessments, and then customize 20 lessons based on that data. These lessons will be facilitated by a family member from the comforts of home. *
The program begins with a thorough assessment of Phonological Awareness skills, letter recognition, letter/sound knowledge and phonics. There is an initial assessment fee which is then applied to the total.
With data from the assessment, the family will be provided with customized, targeted lessons to work on for 15-20 minutes daily.*
Included in the lessons are daily phonological awareness and phonics practice, printable materials, and online practice for reinforcement and fun.
Included in the program are four, 20-minute Zoom calls to check in and ask questions.
At the conclusion of the 20 lesson course, is the final assessment of Phonological Awareness skills, letter recognition, and letter/sound knowledge. At that time, families can decide to continue with more lessons.
*There is an option to have a virtual tutor facilitate these lessons for an additional fee.
