ABOUT READING MADE EASY
Experienced, Knowledgeable, Competent
I provide intensive, systematic instruction.
I use programs that address phonics, phonemic awareness. fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. Instruction is systematic - building skills gradually, introducing them in isolation and then integrating them with the other skills. I provide frequent opportunities for practice and provide specific feedback that is positive and helpful.
What I Provide
I will start by giving your child a comprehensive reading evaluation that will pinpoint your child's strengths and weakness. I will use this information to develop a personalized learning plan. This plan will be tailored to meet your child's specific needs and allow them to learn at their own pace. At the same time they will be building the skills and confidence to become readers for life.
To help you better understand how I will be helping your child
phonics- the connection between letters and their sounds
phonemic awareness-the ability to identify and manipulate individual sounds
fluency- the ability to read with speed, accuracy and proper expression
vocabulary- knowledge of words and word meanings
comprehension- the understanding and interpenetration of what is read
