We Will Solve Your Child’s Reading Problem

In first grade, one thing is certain—you’re not in kindergarten anymore. Children in 1st grade move from the world of learning through play to the world of symbols and concepts, and by the end of the year, these 6- and 7-year-olds are expected to be reading grade-level books.

Your child’s experience of building their reading foundation in preschool and kindergarten will determine if your child is labeled an advanced student or left still trying to catch up. It’s normal to see children in 1st grade reading at different levels, but a classroom teacher may not provide all the instruction your child needs. Through our 1st-grade tutoring program, we can help your child catch up to grade level or even jump ahead several reading grade levels.

Is your child making a lot of mistakes on words that look alike?

There are 300 small words that beginning readers make mistakes on because they look alike. (i.e. the th words like there and them, words like where and were, or was and saw.) Every time your child makes a mistake on any of these words it’s like a dagger in their heart and they can’t see the next word. They become unfocused and unconcentrated. If they’re making lots of mistakes on these words, they can’t focus on what the story is about. They end up focusing on how stupid they are and then they don’t want to be there. At the Dicker Reading Method and our 1st grade tutoring program, we help your child to gain mastery over their vocabulary and fluency in their reading, overcoming their past struggles and growing into a confident, joyful reader.

Does your child:

  • leave off endings  
  • add on endings
  • substitute one word for another
  • hesitate on words
  • not know the meaning of words 

If so, they are not reading to their full potential. Each mistake your child makes distracts your child, destroying their focus and concentration. At the Dicker Reading Method, our time-tested program will teach your child the vocabulary they need and bring them into the learning “zone.” Your child will gain the skills they need to become a strong reader. For the past 35 years, The Dicker Reading Method has developed custom-tailored, one-on-one tutoring programs for children. We have created a proprietary method that will allow your child to learn 5 words and their meanings in 1 minute. Watch as your child’s grades, test scores, and confidence soar as they develop a love for reading and school.
