Is your child able to sound out new words?

Is your child able to write legibly and spell most words he can say?

Is your child, grade 3 and up, able to read a newspaper article and tell you what it is about?
If your child can read, write, and spell well, he or she will be successful in other subjects.
But reading problems will impact every subject a child tries to learn.
If reading, writing, or spelling problems are holding your child back, let STEPS help!

The National Institute of Health has found that explicit phonics is the most effective way to teach a child to read.
If you live in the Summerville, SC area, STEPS tutoring can help your child be a successful reader.

STEPS Reading Center provides one-on-one tutoring for students of all ages.
Our specially trained teachers work with your child to learn the letter sounds and how to write them either in manuscript or cursive.
Students will learn all 70 phonogram sounds and then how to blend those sounds together to read.
Your child will also be taught the process of spelling and the rules that determine the correct spelling of English.
Sessions meet for 2 one hour sessions per week.
Students are scheduled for Mon./Wed. or for Tues./Thurs. sessions.
Contact us now for scheduling.

All STEPS Tutors are highly trained and experienced in teaching reading.

Sessions are video taped and tapes are available for parent viewing.
