Research finds that 1-on-1 individual reading tutoring is overwhelmingly beneficial for the student. We offer only 1-on-1 tutoring programs. Other programs, even major brand names, offer only “personal” or “individualized” learning, utilizing small group instruction (usually 3-to-1 or 4-to-1 student to teacher ratios). The Dicker Reading Method has always used the 1-on-1 tutoring method and our results speak for themselves.

When your child comes to us, you know how old they are and what grade they are in school, but you may not know what they need to succeed as a reader and a student. Our assessment process will pinpoint the level that your child will begin the program at and your child’s individual needs.

Basically, there are three parts to reading: reading the words, knowing what the words mean, and reading comprehension. Without the ability to read the words and understand them, you can’t have reading comprehension and you can’t have fluent reading. 

In our assessment session, your child will be screened to determine what level of word recognition, understanding, and comprehension they already possess. This will be used by our tutors to determine exactly where your child should start and which skills they need to concentrate on in order to become a fluent, confident reader.

After we assess the child, we’ll start them right away. We then invite the parent into the room where they will be able to witness the shift from “I can’t read” to “I can read.”  No other program does this. In just a matter of weeks, your child will make huge leaps, up to a year’s progress in a month.

Phonics for kindergarten is very abstract, and can create a hesitant and disconnected reading style. For a child who has trouble with sounding words out, reading becomes an exercise in frustration and disappointment. 

We have developed an exclusive phonics reading program/decoding technique in which your child will learn five new words and their parts in one minute, naturally. Through this technique your child will become totally focused, concentrated, and “in the zone”, and will be exposed to 76 to 152 repetitions, learning to read the five words fluently. When your child sees the words in a story or sentence, they will recognize them and be able to read the story or sentence fluently. Our method takes the struggle out of learning phonics, and makes reading fun again.

Yes! We have very effective reading tutoring programs for students who have been labeled AD, ADHD, Learning Disabled & Dyslexic.

This will depend on a few factors. After the reading assessment, we will know where your child stands and at what level they are starting from. At this point, we will be able to make a recommendation. Some kids come 1 hour a week. Some children attend 2, 3 or even more per week. We want your child to experience real progress and we offer a the most flexibility to make it easy for your family to make it work. There are no contracts. The Dicker Reading Method is a pay as you go program. We don’t need a contract, because we produce results. We are open seven days a week, Monday through Friday, from 8:00 AM to 8:30 PM and Saturday and Sunday from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM. Even at 1 hour a week of tutoring, we promise your child will make great progress.
