ABC Tutors Offers In-Home Summer Tutoring Programs for Students Struggling with Reading

Reading is the basis of our education system, a student who struggles with the subject or reading will without a doubt struggle in other subjects like math, science, and history. Reading is a fundamental building block that plays a crucial role in our daily lives and education. The ability to read and comprehend subject matter at standard academic levels or higher is a valuable skill for any student.

Other than learning how to speak or spell, reading is usually one of the first language skills that a child will develop, typically during the start of kindergarten. This is why it is important that every student is set up for success at an early age to ensure that they meet or exceed educational benchmarks, develop lifelong language skills, and hopefully discover a passion for reading in the process.

Learning to Read and Developing Solid Comprehensive Reading Skills can be Difficult for Some Children

A child struggling with their reading and comprehension skills is not uncommon in fact, more than 34 percent of children entering kindergarten lack the basic language skills needed to learn how to read (Childhood, 2014) and 67 percent of fourth graders read at or below the average reading level for their age group (Card, 2022).

As we continue to see an overall decline in our national literacy rates, parents should be concerned that their students may not be meeting the academic standard for reading and comprehension.

Our in-home reading programs develop stronger reading and comprehension skills than traditional learning centers and we work with students K-12 who are struggling with reading and comprehension skills including students with Special Needs or an IEP.


Don’t Let Your Child’s Reading Skills Regress During Summer Vacation

One of the leading contributors to substandard reading levels and academic regression is without a doubt summer vacation or summer break. Yes, Summer vacation is a time to relax, spend time with friends, and recharge the batteries for a new school year; but it is also the reason we see such a drastic decline in reading skills and the overall retention of information learned from the previous year.

The Worst Thing a Student Can Do When Learning to Read is Take Time Off.

Summer break is detrimental to the learning process, we can’t expect to see results when a student is learning to read for nine months during the school year and then suddenly stops the process.

This is especially true of younger students that need the repetition to build confidence, these formative years of education are critical to a student’s ability to properly decode the building blocks of language arts, blends, sounds, and phonetical awareness.

Fortunately, at ABC Tutors we offer in-home summer reading programs that will ensure a child won’t be left behind and develops the necessary reading skills. With ABC Tutors’ in-home summer reading programs, we can make sure that your student is reading at an appropriate level and prepared for the new school year.

If You Believe Your Child Is Struggling with His or Her Reading ABC In-Home Tutors Can Help

Don’t let your child fall behind, ensure that they are ready for the classroom by enrolling them in an ABC Tutors in-home reading program. At ABC Tutors we make reading tutoring a one-on-one learning experience that strengthens a student’s confidence through repetition and learning strategies that are individualized to the needs of each specific student.

We make the enrollment process straight forward and easy. We start by scheduling an interview with our ABC In-Home Tutoring Staff, parents, and the student. We first assess the needs of the student, identifying the specific areas that they are currently struggling in. Next, we work with parents and students to determine which ABC In-Home Tutor will be the best fit and how often and how long each in-home summer tutoring session should be.

Once a student’s tutoring program has been determined, weekly one-on-one summer tutoring will begin! Every student’s progress is documented, ensuring their targeted knowledge building goals are met.

If you think your child may be falling behind or struggling academically, schedule a consultation with one of our education coordinators to start the ABC Tutors In-Home Tutoring enrollment and interview process.
