Classes begin with a lesson on reading skills. Then the teacher guides group reading with discussions, models vocabulary and comprehension skills, and helps students gain a thorough understanding of the text. Students then have a home reading assignment with vocabulary tracking. We keep the written work small because we believe reading should be enjoyable. Gaining a love for reading is the most important step in becoming a good reader.

In one-on-one classes, the teacher works through the student’s school textbook or our own curriculum, teaching full understanding of concepts, not just steps. Classes move at the student’s pace, and lessons extend to underlying concepts when students struggle. Comprehension for word problems is included, and lessons are aligned with Common Core.
