Reading Improvement: The A+ Way
At A+ Tutoring of Central Florida, we believe each and every student is uniquely and individually gifted, and that every student can succeed! Therefore, to help each student achieve his or her greatest reading potential, we recommend an evaluation of student needs. Our assessment includes an informal discussion with the parent and student and may also include a formal evaluation of student skills. An individual reading improvement plan is created for the student to include targeted skills review, specific practice integrating schoolwork, test preparation, and strategies for success.
Welcome to A+ Tutoring's reading improvement success stories! Hallie came to A+ in the first grade! She struggled with her reading fluency, decoding unfamiliar words, and reading directions in class. A Reading Specialist assessed her skills, identified specific skills to review, and more importantly, the ways she learned best. A plan was designed around her needs. Hallie met with her tutor, one on one, and within a few short weeks her confidence and reading skills began to soar!
FCAT reading often challenges students at the elementary, middle, and high school level. Craig is a specific learning disabled (SLD) student who was given little chance to pass the reading portion of the FCAT. Meeting with his tutor, one on one, has made all the difference! Craig's reading scores have more than doubled since he began tutoring at A+, and we expect his results from the October testing will put him over the top.
Reading can be a challenge for home school students and their parents. At A+, we offer students, such as Kaye, a junior in high school, the chance to truly excel and prepare for their College Board SAT and ACT tests. Her verbal test scores improved over 100 points as we guided her practice.
From the 1st grader learning phonics, to the SLD student challenged by the FCAT, to the high school student facing an upgraded language arts curriculum, together we build A+ success.
