Reading is the foundation of most academic achievement, so it is vital to get help for struggling readers as soon as possible. Through my phonics-based approach, I can correct reading difficulties within a few months--if not sooner. My students not only become strong readers but also often start reading above grade level. I also can help pre-K students get a head start!
Readers make great strides when they can connect the letters on the page to the sound that they make in speech. Many letters and combinations of letters make several different sounds depending on how they are used in the word. I teach the rules governing these differences, which helps students read much more fluently as well as spell more accurately. I also incorporate the child's interests into the reading material I use--reading is a lot of fun when it allows a child to learn more about what they love!
