In these ongoing 1:1 tutoring sessions, the learner will grow in reading fluency, I will support and actively instruct them in reading accurately and with expression. Fluent reading is the key to reading comprehension.

Class experience

US Grade 1 - 5
Beginner - Intermediate Level
To ensure effective tutoring, the teacher suggests meeting 2x per week. Book additional recurring meetings after the initial purchase.
This class is taught in English.
  • Learners will become more fluent and expressive readers. Learners will grow in reading accuracy, meaning they’ll begin to make fewer errors while they’re reading. They will learn to notice when something doesn’t make sense in their reading. For example, reading the sentence, “Leslie sat on her front porch and had a snack,” but saying, “Leslie sit in her front porch and had a snake.” Too many errors renders a sentence meaningless. Learners will develop the ability to “read like they’re talking.” A reader must not read too quickly, too slowly, or in a choppy way. Reading in these ways makes it difficult to comprehend what one is reading. Learners will develop prosody or “reading with expression”. Prosody is “the skill of reading aloud with proper intonation, phrasing, and expression.” Reading with prosody frees up the brain to enjoy and comprehend what’s being read. Learners will become more confident readers and speakers.
