We Will Solve Your Child’s Reading Problem

By 7th grade, adolescence is in full swing. Your child is in a transitional period between childhood and adulthood and faces pressures from school, peers, and even from you, their parent. When 7th graders have difficulty with reading, these pressures are dramatically amplified, leading to a struggle at home and at school.

Academic demands in 7th grade are much greater than ever before, and 12- and 13-year-old students need to sharpen their study skills. There are higher expectations, and students will have longer, more independent assignments and more challenging materials. 7th grade Language Arts students will now have to go outside of the text, using additional sources, to be able to answer deeper inference questions on reading assignments. If they haven’t already, any reading comprehension difficulties that your child may have will quickly reveal themselves under the added stress of these heightened expectations.

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 reading 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:

  • have diffuculty with Reading Comprehension?
  • not know the meanings of words?
  • make mistakes while reading?
  • read hesitantly?
  • become unfocused while reading?

Once they’ve reached 7th grade, every student is expected to be a competent reader. Every facet of their education, from English to Science to their extracurriculars, will require them to be able to read and draw meaning from the written word. If your child still struggles with reading, this is the time to get them back on track. At The Dicker Reading Method, we can work with your middle schooler to build their reading skills from the ground up, bringing them back up to speed and giving them skills to last the rest of their lives.

For the past thirty-five years, Dicker Reading has developed custom-tailored, 1-on-1 tutoring programs for children. We have created a time-tested, proprietary method that introduces students to 20,000 words developmentally. With The Dicker Reading Method, your child can 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.
