Is your high-schooler struggling to keep up with reading and homework?
Give your student the strategies he or she needs to be a successful reader.
High school can feel like a “make or break” time in a student’s life. There are many extra pressures placed on high school students, mostly in preparation for getting into college or to ensure graduation. Reading issues for high school students can appear to be subject-specific problems, but if your high-schooler is struggling with reading, the impact can be like a ripple effect, triggering multiple issues.
Deeper understanding of what is read and being able to connect that knowledge to other concepts is a main goal for high school. Beyond the basic skills required for effective reading, high school students are also expected to learn, understand and be able to discuss what they have read. High school students have to be able to read multiple selections and then be able to compare and contrast them. High school students are also expected to be able to read efficiently from text books. Tests, writing assignments and long-term projects are typically tied into assigned text book reading.
RITES certified reading specialists work create the right program for your individual student’s reading success. Through the trusting relationship built between the RITES teacher and your student, we involve the student directly in the process of understanding his or her learning style to recognize weak areas and use relative strengths to transform these weaknesses into areas of competence. As with all RITES tutoring, we pinpoint the skills each student needs to improve and focus each dynamic lesson on building these specific skills. RITES reading specialists give your student strategies to become a more confident, efficient reader to get the most out of the text he or she reads, leading to improved grades.
For high school students still struggling with the mechanics of reading (phonemic awareness, decoding, encoding, fluency), we have RITES reading specialists trained in specific, scientifically researched and proven multisensory teaching approaches, such as Orton-Gillingham, to remediate these skills so your student achieves reading success.
