We Will Solve Your Child’s Reading Problem

There are new expectations for children entering second grade. These 7- or 8-year-old children are now expected to read fluently, with expression and possess an increased capability for reasoning. Students in 2nd grade spend less time learning to read and spend more time reading to learn. 2nd-grade is also when schools introduce formal comprehension. This includes making inferences, answering questions about something they have read even though the answer may not have been explicitly stated in the text. That’s why we created our 2nd Grade Reading Tutoring program.

If your child did not build a strong reading foundation in kindergarten and 1st grade, 2nd-grade can be incredibly difficult and painful for them and you alongside them. Any reading difficulties that were not sufficiently addressed in 1st grade are likely to become more pronounced. This is simply because without a strong foundation the students will only struggle with all of the new things that are expected of them. It becomes a compounding problem, and it is not uncommon for 2nd graders to be labeled as learning disabled, diagnosed with an attention deficit disorder, or simply get left behind.

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

For beginning readers, there are 300 small words that cause problems. These are the words that look alike, the “th” words like there and them, words like where and were, or was and saw. If a child doesn’t have a firm grasp on these foundational words, the rest of reading will become a painful struggle. In our 2nd Grade Reading Tutoring program, we ensure your child knows and can read these words fluently.
