Using the Right Essay Format

Essay format is one of those things that only gets trickier as children get older. Use this video as a guide to learning the most basic way to structure an essay.

Keep in mind that the expectation for essay format will change in the higher grade levels. For now, this should work for 3rd to 8th grade students.

If you’re looking for a creative way to teach children reading, look no further than the kitchen.

Your child will get to practice his or her inference skills and taste goodies with this yummy tip.

What is Fluency?

Many parents ask me, “What is fluency, and why is it important?” Reading fluency is a HUGE key to developing stellar reading comprehension skills. Without good reading fluency, your child will simply spend most of their time thinking about the words themselves instead of what he/she is reading. This video will show you what exactly fluency is and how to make sure your child has it.

The children that I work with see an increase their reading grade level within 12 weeks. If your child is a struggling reader and would benefit from meeting with an online reading tutor, let me know by sending a note. I’ll get back to you within 5 business days.
