One of the most critical skills that we work on here at the Youth Tutoring Program is reading literacy because having good reading skills is important to being successful in today’s world.
In a study done in the United Kingdom, students read to someone for 30 minutes a day. The results? Students ended up performing remarkably well, with many improving their reading levels by two grades in less than 5 months!
While we do a lot to ensure student success while they are attending tutoring sessions, students will benefit even more if they do more reading at home. Please consider having your student read to you or an older sibling so that they get even more practice!
