Why TakeLessons?

Reading Lessons

For younger children, reading tutoring can help identify the methods and tools that best suit your child’s learning style. A personal tutor can offer the proper attention and feedback to help your student through words, sentences and paragraphs. Instead of moving at a pace that suits a classroom of children at different reading abilities, student and tutor can make progress at the perfect pace.

Reading tutoring also helps with the skills needed for standardized testing and core curriculum standards. Reading comprehension tests typically involves identifying key concepts and points of view, or comparing and contrasting themes. Many students can greatly improve their performance by learning what to look for and how to process the text. A tutor can help with specific goals like taking better notes while reading and learning to look ahead for key questions.

Why Invest in Reading Tutoring?

• Prep sessions that are customized to your specific needs and learning style
• Prescreened and friendly tutors committed to your success
• Choice of locations - in your home, online, or at an agreed-upon location with your tutor
• 100% Money Back Guarantee with your first tutoring session

If your child has struggled with reading scores in the past, consider reading tutoring to help them reach their full potential. Parents and classroom teachers may not be able to identify the specific skills that a student needs to improve upon. With the heavy importance placed on reading as part of core requirements and testing, every student can gain from the personal touch of reading tutoring.
