A quick announcement: I will soon be running a trial program to help students whose families can’t afford to hire a tutor. (See Prices.) This will (temporarily) be free. I need a bit of info from you about your child, to see if this module will fit his or her needs. Please fill out this survey , and I’ll let you know the next step. It’s VERY short! 😉
Do any of these sound like your child?
- She should be able to read in school by now—but she can’t
- He has learned to read a little, but isn’t advancing with his classmates
- She doesn’t understand that letters mean sounds
- He can’t blend sounds together to form a word
- She skips little words, or adds in words that don’t make sense, and aren’t on the page
- He guesses instead of sounding out (decoding) words
- She stumbles, stops, loses her place, or starts over, again and again
- He mixes up letters that are similar, such as b, d, p, and q, and/or words such as was and saw
- It sounds like he reads very well—but he doesn’t understand a word of it
- Reading at home is a daily battle between you and your kid . . . arguing, struggling, maybe even crying and tantrums
If any of these sound familiar, I know that you’re scared, upset and worried about your child’s future if his reading doesn’t improve—fast! And if this is your situation, I may be able to help your child through online tutoring. I’m a reading teacher who tutors American children using Skype, a video calling service that is free to you.
I offer a free session to parents who are sincerely looking for a reading tutor. See my FAQ for details, and check my prices to see if it’s something you can afford. If it’s too expensive, definitely fill out the survey mentioned at the top of the page, and my (temporarily) free program may help your child.
If you’d like to learn about the experiences other parents have had with my services, read these reviews.
If you are interested in my tutoring services, tell me about your situation in the form below. It is totally private, and I’m the only one who will see it.
Thanks for visiting. Sending you and your child the best of wishes,
