Initial Assessment: Our journey begins with a comprehensive assessment to understand the unique reading challenges your child faces.

This step is crucial for tailoring our approach to meet their specific needs. We take a personalized approach understanding that every child is unique and learns in their own way.

Our tutors work one-on-one with your child to identify their strengths and weaknesses, and then develop a customized plan to help them overcome their reading difficulties.

Phonemic Awareness and Phonics: Building a strong foundation in phonemic awareness and phonics is pivotal. Our expert tutors employ interactive reading techniques to teach the sounds of letters and how they blend to form words, making the decoding process less daunting for your child.

We also focus on sight word recognition, helping children memorize frequently used words that do not follow phonetic rules.

Vocabulary Expansion: A robust vocabulary is a linchpin for comprehension. Through engaging activities, we introduce new words in a fun and memorable way, enriching your child’s reading skills and understanding of the text. 

Reading Fluency: Practice makes perfect. We foster reading fluency through repeated reading of text passages, allowing your child to gain confidence and improve speed, accuracy, and expression.

Reading Comprehension Strategies: Comprehending what’s read is the epitome of mastering reading skills. We teach various reading strategies like summarizing, questioning, and making predictions to enhance understanding and retention of the material.

Writing Integration: Reading and writing are two sides of the same coin. We encourage children to express their understanding and creativity through writing, reinforcing the connection between reading and writing.

Technological Tools: Incorporating modern technological tools can make learning more engaging. We utilize educational apps and software that reinforce reading skills in an interactive and enjoyable manner.

Parental Involvement: Parents are integral to a child’s learning journey. We provide regular updates and guidance on how to support your child’s reading practice at home, forging a collaborative effort towards improving their reading skills.

Continuous Evaluation and Feedback: Progress monitoring is vital. Regular assessments and feedback ensure that the teaching strategies employed are yielding the desired results and adjustments are made when necessary.

what are the 5 basic skills of reading?

The five basic skills of reading, often referred to as the “Five Pillars of Reading,” are crucial for understanding written text and are fundamental in learning to read proficiently. These skills are:

Phonemic Awareness: Recognizing and understanding the sounds of the letters and how they interact is the first step. Phonemic awareness helps in distinguishing different sounds in words and understanding the sound structure of words.

Phonics: This involves understanding the relationship between phonemes (sounds) and graphemes (letters and words). Phonics instruction helps learners to decode words by sounds, which is essential for reading.

Vocabulary: Developing a strong vocabulary is essential for understanding what is read. Vocabulary instruction helps learners understand the meaning of words and how they are used in context.

Fluency: Reading fluency is the ability to read text accurately, quickly, and with proper expression. Fluent readers recognize words automatically and can focus on comprehension.

Comprehension: This is the ultimate goal of reading, where learners are able to understand, interpret, and analyze the text. Comprehension skills allow readers to interact with the text in a meaningful way, extracting relevant information and understanding the message being conveyed.

Mastering these basic reading skills forms a solid foundation for learners, enabling them to become proficient readers who can effectively interact with and learn from text.

In closing, the path to proficient reading skills is a collaborative endeavor that requires teaching foundational reading skills, patience, and a nurturing environment. At Edmaur, we are poised to provide just that.
