Reading Assessment

When a child is accepted for tutoring the first session(s) will involve assessment of his/her reading abilities. These are formal and informal evaluations and are designed to help us determine your child’s strengths and needs. Based upon the results of the assessments an individualized instructional plan is developed and used by the tutor to teach your child.

  • What Reading Materials will be used?
    When tutoring children we use non-fiction and fiction books, magazines, newspapers, etc. that are appropriate for the child’s individual reading level and that are of interest to the child. We have an extensive collection of materials at the Center.
