Reading Comprehension

The human brain was not mean to take in words the way we do. There are specific parts of the brain for sight, hearing and touch, yet there are multiple areas of activation when people read. Reading at its most basic level is word identification and language comprehension. Language comprehension refers to a student’s background knowledge, vocabulary, syntax (word/phrase order), semantics or word meanings, verbal reasoning, the ability to make inferences and understand metaphors and literacy concepts such as genre.

Unable to Decode Words

No matter how many times you tell a child to try and sound out an unknown word, without automatic decoding strategies, they simply won’t be able to identify the word. Many students need explicit and direct instruction to decode words. Accurate decoding involves identifying vowel patterns and a clear understanding of the alphabetic principle of phonologic awareness. This type of awareness is demonstrated when students know the sounds of letters or groups of letters and can manipulate those various sounds in our language.

Writing

Getting thoughts out of our heads and into the world is difficult for many people. When children struggle to express themselves in writing, they tend to have lower self-esteem and often have production issues. Writing involves much more than deciding if the pen or pencil is mightier than the keyboard. It involves generating and organizing content, spelling choices, grammar, punctuation and vocabulary.

Math

Like reading, math can be frustrating when a student encounters a difficult new concept. Working with the right tools and strategies provides your child with the best chance of success. Students will have more ability and confidence when identifying numbers, their meaning, and will develop an ability to manipulate them successfully.

Handwriting

Handwriting is about much more than coordination. It requires legibility or accuracy of letter-forms and fluency or the automaticity and rate of formation. Ensuring the messages are getting from the brain to the pencil and down on paper is a key part of writing and communication. Keyboarding instruction is NOT a substitution for creating or aiding in context with writing.

Executive Function Skills

Parts of the human brain are not fully developed until an individual is in their twenties. Students are responsible for a great deal of organizing, planning, and time management today than ever before. Allowing students to practice these skill sets with appropriate coaching gives them ownership of their studies.

Working together
for better learning

I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you have done to help E. both read and write. He has come a very long way since we started with you almost one year ago. You are an extremely patient, kind, thoughtful, and generous person. W. C.

Angela has been a tremendous help with our daughter who suffers from dyslexia. My daughter has been going to her for the last year and a half and is now reading with confidence and at grade level. Angela is patient and very encouraging.

We couldn’t be more pleased with Angela and her work with our son C. this past year. When his high school moved to “Distance Learning”, C. began to struggle with his classes and staying engaged. Angela brought him up to speed with his current school work.

Angela has been tutoring my girls on and off for 5 years since they were diagnosed with dyslexia at age 7. The girls look forward to their tutoring sessions and have made improvements in their reading and writing. While Angela is warm and patient, she also ensures that the girls focus and remain on task.
