The Benefits of Reading Tutoring

Reading is an important skill and one which all students need to master. Although it may seem basic, reading forms the base of every other subject. Even if your child enjoys reading, there is always room to improve and grow as a reader.

Build a Stronger Vocabulary

It's no secret that avid readers also tend to have a broader and stronger vocabulary. This is due to the amount of new words they are exposed to as they read. A reading tutor can help your child expand their vocabulary by stopping and analyzing new words with them. This can go beyond just looking up the meaning of a new word. Getting to know the root of a word, its synonyms, and antonyms will also help your child develop a better understanding of how words work.

Reading Comprehension

Reading comprehension is an important but sometimes tricky skill to master. It requires a bit of multitasking since your child has to read a text while also paying attention to the main points of the text. A reading tutor can help them go back and identify which parts are important and why. This will make it easier for your child to grasp the main idea and supporting elements in the text.

Become a More Fluent Reader

Fluency is often related to how well you speak a certain language, but in reading, it refers to your child's ability to correctly read a text at the right pace and with the correct expression. This brings together their abilities with phonics, reading comprehension, and punctuation. If you notice your child struggles while reading out loud, their fluency may need work. A reading tutor can help pinpoint the areas where they need the most help and increase their reading fluency. Not only will your child be a better reader, but they will also show an increase in their confidence and love of reading.
