Ms. R. Tutors offers the areas most qualified English tutors.  Below are the three main components covered in English tutoring. 

Reading is arguably the most important skill for a child to master, and also the toughest.  After all, success in every other subject requires it.  So much is involved in being able to read proficiently.  Not only do students need to be able to decode the words but then, comprehend.  Most students will be required to read information then answer questions based on the reading.  This requires mastery of decoding and comprehension.  Reading fluency takes time and patience but once mastered, is the most empowering feeling for a student.

Some reading comprehension skills include:
  • Main Idea
  • Context Clues
  • Cause and Effect
  • Sequencing
  • Summarizing

Writing effectively enables students to communicate their thoughts and ideas.  This takes time and continuous practice.  From first grade on, students are required to write every day, take effective notes in class, and many tests require answers in paragraph or essay form.  Many students are facing the challenge of writing high school and college entrance essays; a very frustrating task if a child is struggling. 

Some writing styles include:
  • Descriptive
  • Expository
  • Letter
