Reading & Literacy
Reading comprehension, strategies for analyzing a text, and a strong foundation of phonics, fluency, and vocabulary are important for student success in reading. In addition, a strong understanding of proper grammatical rules, practice in revising and editing, and essay development, analysis, and feedback are important for success in writing. 1 to 1 Tutoring’s language arts intervention program is student-focused, personalized, and responsive to the needs of each school and each student. Our tutors serve as an extension of your school — they are highly qualified, well-trained, and possess a deep love for education. Tutorials can be tailored for small-group push-ins within a teacher’s classroom, small-group pull-outs for deep intervention support, one-on-one support, after-school programs, Saturday classes, or summer bridge programs.
Our language arts tutorial and intervention programs help improve student achievement by tailoring support to individual school and student need. We structure lessons that focus on three specific criteria:
- Content mastery of the state standards: for public and charter schools or the school curriculum: for private/ religious schools
- Content depth of knowledge- so students learn each concept deeply in order to make connections to multiple standards through and across grade levels
- Concept evidence- where students learn to develop critical thinking skills by developing well- thought claims and justifying these claims using textual evidence
The core of our instruction focuses on the gradual release model of student responsibility and collaborative learning techniques using inquiry that is rooted in research to improve foundational skills, develop a deeper understanding of reading strategies and grammar rules, improve the reading levels of students, and advance students toward grade-level mastery of concepts and beyond.
