The Elements of a Successful Reading Program

  • Properly Identify the problem - Reading Assessment

  • Participate in an appropriate reading group - Reading Groups
  • Private tutoring taught by a qualified reading specialist - Reading Tutor
  • Parent Participation - Parent Resources - Free Reading Assessment 


The challenge for most parents is finding a qualified reading specialist in South Orange County that can properly identify the cause of the child's reading struggles. Once properly identified, the reading tutor will be able to develop an individualized reading strategy.

The Reading Assessment will evaluate your child's ability level in the following areas...

  • Letter knowledge - Associate sounds with letters
  • Phonemic awareness - Hear and manipulate sounds in words
  • Decoding - Corresponding letter sounds  to recognize words
  • Fluency - Reading words in connected textpe your paragraph here.
  • Reading comprehension - Understanding the meaning of text


Private Reading Tutor  


Every child will need some level of individualized tutoring and feedback. Some very involved parents will only need to hire a private tutor occasionally, while others would much rather allow a reading specialist to work with their child. 

The benefits to private tutoring include..

  • Private individualized attention
  • customized problem solving
  • Individualized motivation
  • Personal accountability
  • Increased self esteem


Private Reading Tutor Fees:  $50.00 per hour / $25.00 per 1/2 hour


Parent Participation


The single most important thing you can do to help your child succeed in school is to read with them every day. The National Commission on Reading concluded that "reading aloud by parents is the single most important activity for building the knowledge required for eventual success in reading." Experts still think that reading aloud to children is a better way to help kids learn to read themselves than computer games or electronic toys. We encourage you to go to our reading list on the parent resource page and find a book that you can read together.
