Give your child all that they need to thrive from grades 1 through 3.

In our Young Readers program, students learn the 44 sounds made by the 26 letters of the alphabet. Through a systematic Orton Gillingham based approach, students learn to combine sounds together to read  one and two syllable words. By the end of Levels 1 and 2, children demonstrate a significant improvement in their ability to sound out familiar and unfamiliar words and a marked improvement in reading fluency. It is not unusual at all for a student who completes this program and the practice activities that come with it to experience to go up a full grade in their reading level. All students notice that reading is much easier! Tutors leverage children's love of games, social interaction and the online environment over Zoom to enable students to have fun while learning!

Level 1:

Letter sounds including both short and long vowels and digraphs. They will learn how to decode these sounds as the learn to read short vowel (CVC) and long vowel (CVCe) words

Level 2:

Hard and soft sounds (i.e. pig vs page and tic vs twice ) trigraphs (i.e. tch as in catch) and two syllable words (i.e. cupcake, milkshake and robin)
