I am a certified Reading Recovery teacher and as such follow thier program which is highly effective. It works from students strenghts. THere is an initial assessment to see where the student is and what they already know. The lesson is based on the needs of the particular student. It is a reading/writing session since they go hand in hand. I teach various reading strategies. Phonics is only ONE strategy at the point of difficulty. There are many other strategies. The lesson is approximately 45 minutes and is great for Kinders and grade 1 students who either need support or want to jump ahead. It also will work for second grade students.
This tutor offers a sliding scale for students with economic hardships.
