We Will Solve Your Child’s Reading Problem

9th grade is the transition year between middle school and high school, and it’s a tough one. Challenges are abundant for 14- and 15-year-old students, and it becomes difficult to balance schoolwork, after school activities, and friendships. As soon as students become freshmen, their transcript will begin to follow them, and the grades they make from now on will be present and visible when they apply for college. Not only do their grades now matter more, but freshmen in highschool now have access to a much wider diversity of classes, they must prepare for and take a variety of standardized tests, and the pressure to succeed is high on all sides.

Does your child:

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

If a 9th grader never formed a solid foundation in reading skills, or missed out on the vocabulary they now need, they will never be able to meet the demands of their new and challenging classes. If a 9th grader misses or misunderstands as few as 7 words in a paragraph, that paragraph may become impossible for them to comprehend as a whole. If your student can’t understand their readings, how are they going to succeed in high school? It’s not too late, though, for a high school freshman to gain the skills they need.

For the past 35 years, Dicker Reading Method has developed custom-tailored, one-to-one, 9th-grade reading 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.
