More and more parents these days are making the conscientious decision to work with a private tutor to give their children the advantage of year-round literacy support. They recognize that the ability to read, write, and comprehend creates the basis of all education and even career success – and more often than not, they rely on the Reading Ranch®. Wouldn’t you like to put your child in a position to have the same educational benefits? Of course you would! But if you’re still on the fence about it, here are 6 reasons why your child needs a literacy specialist from the Reading Ranch:

Laser-focused literacy support – We keep throwing that word “specialists” around, and for good reason. While there are many great centers out there, most focus on providing curriculum for all subjects at all grade levels. The Reading Ranch specializes in providing ONLY reading, phonics, fluency, spelling, vocabulary, and comprehension enrichment for kids in Pre-K through sixth grade.

Our teaching standards – Reading Ranch was founded by Dr. Kim Southwell, who has a Ph.D. in Reading Education. We only hire the best tutors and teachers, and they are required to successfully implement our interactive curriculum. Rather than utilizing a drill and kill worksheet structure that feels more like a chore for the student, our interactive approach uses multi-sensory teaching (visual, auditory, tactile, etc.).

One-on-one time – As great as our school systems are, it can be difficult with burgeoning class sizes to get the 1-on-1 time between teacher and student. Reading Ranch specialists deliver on that missing piece (1-on-1 time) while also offering  a small, interactive learning environment with classes of only 2 to 3 students per teacher.

Year-round support – Summertime and even holidays are a critical time where students either leap ahead or fall behind when it comes to their reading and writing skills. Without continuing education, they can regress and end up walking into the next school year lacking the proper skills to keep up in class. Reading Ranch supports reading development year-round to fill those gaps and ensure our kiddos don’t fall behind.

We make it fun – If your child cannot read or write well, and they’ve fallen behind, school can be difficult in terms of sliding grades, poor self-esteem, and overall lack of confidence. And nobody wants that. Reading Ranch specialists have a passion for what they do, and that comes across every day in how we work with children.

We want parents involved – We’ve blogged about the parent-teacher partnership many times before. You are just as welcome in our halls and classrooms as your child is, and why? This relationship promotes trust, fosters additional learning strategies and feedback, and bridges the gap between what’s happening at school and at home. When parents and teachers work together seamlessly, it’s the kiddos that win.
