What do a reading tutor’s services include?

A reading tutor's services cover activities that help school-age children in their reading and writing. They can conduct lessons at the student's home or via online sessions. Parents must note that while a tutor should frequently use positive reinforcement, they shouldn't mislead the student about their performance quality. 

And while a tutor can go over lessons that a student needs help in, a private tutor must still have a lesson plan and schedule that will help the student succeed in the classroom - and even enjoy reading in their leisure. In general, these are what an English reading and writing tutor may cover:

Primary reading tutoring: Paired reading

During the paired reading, your hired tutor will select reading materials. The student starts reading the material out loud, with the tutor adjusting to their speed. For easy materials, the student may prefer to read by themselves and signal their tutor that they want to cover the material independently. For difficult materials, the student may require the assistance of the reading tutor. After this, the tutor gives feedback on pronunciation and punctuation. 

Then, they may move on to the next material or the next activity. The goal is to have the student do more solo reading and take on more challenging (but not too advanced) materials. 

Vocabulary lessons

Next, the reading tutor and the student take the material(s) that they read. They'll list all the words that the student isn't familiar with. Together, the reading tutor and student sound out the word and go over its meaning. The student might learn some synonyms or antonyms and how to use the word in a sentence. 

Reading comprehension tutoring

If the student struggles with reading comprehension, the tutor may ask questions like, "What did you like best about what you just read?" or "Have you ever read, heard, or experienced anything like this?". This may be followed by deeper questions, including, "Why do you think this happened?".  

The tutor then gives follow-up questions to help the student reflect on the piece. If necessary, the reading comprehension tutor may ask the student to reread a sentence or paragraph. By the end of this activity, the student should have a clear understanding of what they read.

English reading and writing

Your hired tutor may assign a writing task that builds on reading comprehension, or create a standalone task. For example, they can ask the student to write a sentence or paragraph about what they read. Students can also pretend to write to the author or a character in the story, asking questions or offering advice.  

Standalone tasks may involve writing about their day at school or their pet. Your hired tutor guides the student in planning the composition and writing a draft. They'll then provide feedback on the structure, subject-verb agreement, grammar, and spelling.

A Primary student grade 1 need face to face reading tutorial . I would prefer closer to Croydon 3136 .

My grade 1 daughter gave 2 thumbs up to Anna for the first meeting. My daughter is very shy and I am happy the way she approached my daughter. She was fun at the same time my daughter was learning. She even went over the time. Seems like my daughter prefers Anna to help her reading. We are looking forward for the next session. Highly recommended!

Haven't used the treadmill for a while. The belt skips from time to time. Maybe it's my weight. When a lighter person walks no skipping.

Good job done!

My step son is in Grade 2, and struggles with his reading and writing. My wife and I do our best, but with a new baby coming into the home, we’re hoping to get a little extra help for his education before he starts to fall behind. We’re hoping to find a uni student studying primary teaching who wants some one on one experience. We live in Rowville, near Park Ridge Primary School and Rowville Secondary College
