Reading Tutoring

At Thinking Cap Tutoring, we believe that in order to improve your child's reading, we must first understand his or her personal profile of skills.

Reading is complicated!  Strong readers have to do all of these things at once:

  • recognize whole words quickly and automatically
  • sound out new words using phonics
  • see letters and words in the right orientation (not backwards or upside-down!)
  • keep their place while reading
  • remember the ideas at the beginning of a passage by the time they get to the end
  • understand the meaning of words, sentences, and passages

When these skills are not solid, your child may struggle with:

  • reading speed
  • sight word recognition
  • sounding out unfamiliar words
  • reading comprehension
  • letter, number, or word reversals

Choosing the right reading program can be confusing, but we can help!

There are lots of reading programs that sound good and look similar to each other.  They all claim that they will improve reading skills, but you want to know whether there is evidence that the programs actually do what they say they'll do!

At Thinking Cap Tutoring, we are committed to using programs and tools that have been shown to improve reading ability through independent scientific studies, such as Read Naturally, The Wilson Reading System, and Great Leaps

Thinking Cap Tutoring's qualified staff is here for your reading tutoring needs.
