How can a Phonics tutor help you?

At any stage in a youth's academic career, developing a strong understanding of and ability to easily use phonics is likely to help them be more successful in school. If you're looking for phonics tutoring in Richmond, VA, Varsity Tutors is happy to try to help you find a tutor who may guide your child along the path to academic success.

Phonics is the way letters and sounds are related. This teaching method connects rules for spelling and the way letter sounds come together to create specific words. Teachers often ask students to sound out words to apply phonetics in order to decode a word or sets of words. While these are related, phonics is an attempt to make words and reading as simple as possible. Phonics is both auditory and visual, while phonemic awareness, or the manipulation of sounds within words, is mostly something that students hear.

Session Summaries by Phonics Tutors

Phonics Tutoring review by Robin in Richmond, VA
The student and I did lots of work today with 'l blends'(gl, cl, pl, fl). She did well on the workbook pages. She reread the book at an independent level! We played several sight word games with new words and I left the cards with her to practice further.

Phonics Tutoring review by Michele in Richmond, VA
The student worked on his homework which involved reading a sentence, choosing the word that completes the sentence and pasting it on the sheet. We reviewed the sight words and graduated two of them. She did a writing worksheet with short i where she wrote the word that matched the picture and did very well. We did phonics drills and then read and spelled plural words, blends, and some final silent "e" words. She needed prompting at first, but did pretty good once the rule was reviewed. She read a short "e" passage at the end of our session.

Phonics Tutoring review by Melissa in Richmond, VA
The student went through his cards and, as he's been doing for a couple sessions, he is able to self-correct. We also reviewed some of the homework from his Friday folder.

Phonics Tutoring review by Alyssa in Richmond, VA
Today, the student and I worked on practicing blends with long-vowel sounds (e.g. "smile"). We also got to do some writing outside, using her sidewalk chalk. I even made a letter hopscotch game. You throw a stone on a letter, and then you have to say the letter name and sound. Once you do that, you can hop to the letter, and then you have to say a word that starts with that letter and hop back. We also added new sight words, so she now knows love, me, you, mom and dad. Then, we read a book. She is very fluent in her letter/sound recognition, and needs less and less prompting each time we do sight words. She was not really struggling with anything today, and I didn't give her any extra practice. I have no concerns.

Phonics Tutoring review by Andrea in Richmond, VA
Friday was our final session, and we focused on practicing the reading of our sight words and practice sentences. The girls showed that they could now sound out words . They were a lot more independent and only needed a little guidance with blending their sight words. Previously, the girls would spell the words showing they had letter recognition and would not provide the sounds the letters make. The girls did an excellent job providing the sound of the letters, and the blending is starting to become second nature. The girls then did a word matching and rhyming sounds activity. We then moved on to practicing their sentence reading. I encouraged their mother to continue the practice and to keep providing new sight words moving on to the vowel 'o', introducing it slowly and with sentences. I also allowed them to keep the practice workbooks that we were using for their lessons.

Phonics Tutoring review by Linda in Richmond, VA
The student and I practiced letters and letter sounds. We are continuously working on motor skills by tracing our first and last name. Today, we learned about the letter 'a.' We learned 4 words that starts with the letter a (Apple, acorn, alligator, and airplane). We then traced and practiced the capital and lowercase "a".
