How can Phonics tutoring help you succeed?

Are you a parent whose child struggles with their phonics? It's not uncommon for young children to struggle with their phonemes, vowels, and blending. If you want to help your student with their phonics, help them by contacting Varsity Tutors, who can help match them with a tutor who can work on their problematic areas. A tutor can provide students with proper help in the subjects they find difficult. Tutoring sessions can be arranged either in person or online. Chicago, Illinois, phonics tutoring is a great option for your child to address their phonics struggles.

Phonics largely deals with teaching students how to read, connecting how words look on paper and how they sound out loud. Phonics explains how sounds are connected to letters. If letter combinations, like “sh” or “th,” are confusing your child's understanding of how to read those letters when inside a word, a personal phonics tutor can help work out those sounds with your child. If your child has a specific learning style, whether it is hands-on or visual, a tutor can plan their lessons correlating to their unique learning style. Phonics tutors in Chicago can help organize tutoring sessions based on your child's learning needs.

Session Summaries by Phonics Tutors

Phonics Tutoring review by Steve in Chicago, IL
The student and I worked on arc length and measure of circles as well as tangents, secants, angles, and related theorems and formulas.  We focused on and discussed her prior exams since she is completing her testing right now and discussed some issues she had on those exams.  It seems like she understands the general underlying processes and concepts, but there is some confusion over how to proceed and identifying the applicable theorems or formulas.

Phonics Tutoring review by Kelli in Chicago, IL
We covered introductions. Some basic pronouns, and the numbers 1-10. We also discussed things that she would like to learn. She really enjoys animals and gymnastics, so we will try to focus on things that she is interested in. I gave her a sheet including the things we covered so that she could practice for next week.

Phonics Tutoring review by Jose in Chicago, IL
The student and I browsed a magazine together. I wanted to do some reading with her in a more challenging setting. I asked her to read slowly and her pronunciation was flawless. I have to work with her now on controlling her speech. I also worked with her systematically on descriptions. I assessed her needs in terms of vocabulary. I need to find a way to enrich the vocabulary.

Phonics Tutoring review by Robin in Chicago, IL
The student was so eager to work today! She wanted to read all of the books I had brought right away. We worked on isolating beginning sounds, which she did well. We played a game to practice isolating medial vowel sounds and she beat me! She read to me with great accuracy and self-corrected her mistakes. The new books we read today gave her a bit of a challenge, so we did lots of word work afterward to practice sounding out unknown words.
