When you get the right reading tutor in Crofton in your corner, you can expect your child’s reading skills to improve, leading to better grades and bigger smiles. Whether your child is starting to fall behind, needs some extra practice to reinforce learning or simply wants to get ahead, our talented tutors will provide the practical support he or she needs.

A Personalized Approach to Tutoring

We know that reading tutoring is not a one-size-fits-all type of thing, so we provide several different approaches according to your child's unique needs. Once we pinpoint your child’s current level, we can identify the most appropriate path to take to ensure he or she is getting great results.

Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

This program is specifically designed for kids who need extra help to take their reading scores up to their grade level. With our Personalized Tutoring, you can expect:

  • Personalized support throughout. We start with a personalized learning plan, and we continually update that plan to make sure reading is a fun challenge for your child rather than a source of stress and frustration.
  • Targeted learning. Using a detailed reading assessment, we have the insight to know what your child needs to improve reading comprehension and fluency.
  • Budget-friendly rates. Our hourly rates are similar to those offered by private tutors and other tutoring companies, helping to keep the best reading help within your family's budget.

Academic Coaching (K-8)

If your child is doing okay with reading-related schoolwork but could do with some extra support to realize his or her potential, this could be the right program for you. With Academic Coaching, you can expect:

  • Proactive tutoring to build on and sharpen reading comprehension skills, keep up with homework and get ahead in class
  • Learning sessions that include skill practice, homework help, and test prep tips, all designed to meet your child’s needs
  • A school-aligned curriculum that makes a big impact in class performance
  • Affordable monthly packages that satisfy your needs and budget.

Advanced Reading and Test Prep (K-12)

If your child is either on the fast track or needs some extra guidance to manage bigger workloads, you can give your teen the support he or she needs to adapt to accelerated coursework and excel at college-level classes with our Advanced Reading Skills course. This program offers:

  • More confidence (and less stress) for tackling big workloads
  • Efficiency at completing reading assignments in advanced courses
  • Better time management for completing homework and studying for tests that have a significant reading component — including the SAT and ACT
  • Higher scores on homework, tests, and on college entrance exams
  • Preparation for college workloads and high expectations
