Do We Qualify for 2 Free Sessions?

sad boy doesn't know how to read words

This offer is for people who are looking for a reading tutor and are willing to consider online lessons. Most parents want to find out how my reading lessons work,  to see if they feel their child can work happily with me, before making a decision to proceed.

I offer prospective parents two free lessons to try it out and draw their own conclusions about whether they think I can help their child or not.

Unfortunately, using the free lessons are of little help to a child if the parent has no plans to hire a tutor, because there will be no follow-up, and the short time spent won’t add to the child’s skills. It’s not a good use of your time or your child’s emotions. On occasion it has even upset the child that they won’t be continuing to receive the help they need and often desperately want.

In the first lesson I evaluate your child, though it is completely unlike testing at school. It’s non-threatening, and often kids rather enjoy the attention. I will tell them that their only job is to tell me if they can or can’t read a word, and that it’s no problem if they can’t. All they need to do is tell me, so that I can find out what they know how to do and don’t know how to do. If they can read a few words I show, then we move on to a beginning reader book. If they can’t, we’ll talk about letters. If they can’t talk about letters, we’ll talk about a picture.

In the second lesson, I begin work on the issues I discovered in the previous lesson.

For more details, see my FAQ. You also might like to see what other parents have said about the work I’ve done with their child.

If you are interested in tutoring, please let me know about your child, and what your concerns are. I hope I can be of help.
