I teach phonics to younger children to develop their reading, writing and speech. I put a heavy emphasis on developing the child's awareness of phonemes, which are the most basic building blocks for all words in the English language. I will improve your child's ability to hear, identify, and manipulate over 40+ phonemes, and teach them how they correspond to the intricate spelling patterns that are found in our language. I have taught all forms of English and language arts from pre-school to adults in their 50's from foreign countries. I am an expert on pronunciation, vocabulary, spelling, reading, writing as well as more complex mechanics such as sentence structure, subject-verb agreement, comprehension, etc.

I had phonics as an official course from 1st to 6th grade - in total, 6 years. I am also a native English speaker. Using a systematic approach, I have helped elementary-age students build their knowledge of phonics, including vowel recognition, through a variety of enjoyable exercises. I also use online resources for homework and practice outside of lessons. Older students review the basics and then focus on prefixes, suffixes, and Latin and Greek roots, also supported by regular vocabulary study on the side.

I've been teaching Phonics for 10 years now and my students have gone on to love English and have improved reading and writing skills. I typically use a phonics book along with worksheets to help you or your child learn to read better. I love working with everyone from 5 years on up to older adults. I will tailor lessons specifically for you and your goals. I use humor and am easy going. I believe we learn best when we are relaxed and comfortable so that is the environment I create. Also remember, mistakes are a great thing! They give us wonderful opportunities to learn! I look forward to working with you to reach your goals!

Phonics Lessons

The study of phonics refers to the way that students learn to read and write. It involves matching letters with appropriate sounds to help form words. For example, the study of phonics will help a student differentiate all the different sounds the letter “o” can make, such as the long “o” and short “o” sound.

If you or your child needs a little help when it comes to reading, our phonics lessons can make all the difference. Our certified phonics teachers have the expertise to help students of all ages reach their reading potential. Sign up for the best online phonics lessons or in-person sessions today!

FAQ

What should be taught in phonics lessons?

arrow

The basics of phonics instruction involve teaching letter-sound relationships and identifying letter shapes and names. This will help students build a strong foundation on which they can begin expanding their reading skills as they work toward proper pronunciation and spelling. When you sign up for our phonics lessons, our certified teachers know what it takes to help you improve and will cater your lessons to suit your individual needs. They’ll provide you with all the tools to make learning how to read easier than ever.

What is a phonic lesson plan?

arrow

A phonics lesson plan refers to what you will focus on during your phonics lessons. For one student, that might involve focusing on spelling, but for another, it could revolve around identifying different sounds. Because each student is different, at TakeLessons, our teachers customize their lesson plans to align with each student’s goals, interests, and skill sets. Your personalized lesson plan will focus on certain topics that suit your needs and include exercises and activities to help you practice what you learn during your sessions.

How long should a phonics lesson be?

arrow

Here at TakeLessons, we let you decide between 30-minute, 45-minute, and 60-minute sessions. If you’re not sure what’s right for you, we encourage you to speak with your phonics teacher in advance for help determining the best schedule for you and your needs.
