Tips for Effective Studying
TC Reading aims to develop critical thinking skills in students of all ages. Reading comprehension skills impact every aspect of your students’ education. Comprehension issues can make homework harder, affect self-esteem, and create disengaged students. Our TC Reading will help develop your students’ fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension skills so they can become lifelong learners. Our program will help eliminate the stresses of reading while preparing students for future classroom and testing success.
Tutoring Club’s Letters and Sounds Program teaches letter recognition and sound association to develop basic phonics skills. Students are introduced to consonant letter sounds that are easy to pronounce and less often confused with similar letter sounds.
When entering the latter half of elementary school, students undergo a rapid transition away from the foundations of reading and are required to form a deeper understanding of texts. We know – this transition can become overwhelming for many students. Whether you’re looking for your students to get caught up or to get ahead, our awesome tutors help shed away any anxieties and work on building skills that create confident readers.
Lack of vocabulary directly affects your student’s ability to understand their reading materials and can hurt their overall comprehension. We pinpoint your student’s vocabulary and comprehension levels before creating an entirely individualized lesson plan. Over the course of our program, students will be able to develop strengthened vocabulary, visualize what they are reading, recall information, and form conclusions. With these skills under their belts, students will be fully prepared for future grade levels, experience a heightened sense of self-esteem, and grow into successful lifelong readers!
Middle school is an entirely new territory that requires a major adjustment from what your student may be used to in elementary school. Schoolwork gets exponentially tougher and their schedules can become jam-packed with new extracurriculars. Strong reading skills are more critical than ever to succeed as they are expected to analyze and demonstrate an understanding of the information presented in texts for nearly ALL subjects. This expands into the ability to identify the main ideas and supporting details.
At Tutoring Club, we eliminate the late nights and unwanted stress that comes with the more challenging homework assignments and more demanding exams. To do this, our tutors work with students on using context clues, roots, prefixes, and suffixes to define unfamiliar vocabulary as well as to understand the meaning of provided texts. We aim to boost our students’ confidence in reading and to create self-motivated learners just in time for high school!
High school students are subject to more pressure and stress as the weight of the college admissions process looms in the distance. Grades are more important than ever, but teachers keep giving out assignments with texts that may as well be in a foreign language.
Through TC Reading, our star tutors help our students break down complex texts into comprehensible parts by defining unfamiliar vocabulary and helping to analyze abstract meanings. Strong reading skills will take your students far in every subject and give them the tools they need to excel in examinations. Watch them achieve the scores that both they (and you) can be proud of!
Tutoring Club believes that learning should be specific to your student. As such, we don’t do whiteboard-based, one-size-fits-all, singular pace instruction. Our tutors get to know your student and their unique learning style, strengths, and the areas in which they could use that critically important confidence boost.
When your student arrives for their session, our tutors will greet them on a personal level, outline the goals of the session, and then do what they do best: teach. Based on your student’s last session and their understanding/performance, a new lesson is custom-designed to take their skills further and help them catch up, get ahead, and become more confident.
Our tutors then spend the duration of the session engaging in example questions/problems with your student, allowing your student to then work independently to briefly show that they have retained the key material, and then talk through those matters in which your student needs a bit more instruction and support, with the end-goal of subject-matter mastery and independent learners.
