Are your child’s reading challenges holding them back?

Reading is one of the foundational English language arts skills, and it’s so much more than just learning to read in kindergarten or elementary school. Students need to hone their reading comprehension skills to be successful at all grade levels. If your child’s grades in the core curriculum subjects are low, it could be a reading issue. 

At Learner, we know how important it is for students to have top-notch reading skills. Our English language arts tutors offer customized lessons to improve word recognition, phonemic awareness, and comprehension. We can help your child improve their grades and prepare for standardized tests and college courses.

Learner offers several benefits to students

Better academic performance

Reading is a fundamental skill for more than just English language arts classes. Students need to understand rhyming words to write and analyze poetry. They use reading comprehension to figure out word problems in math. Our tutors help students build the reading and writing skills (and confidence!) they need for every class, from elementary school to college and beyond.

Effective college preparation

Reliable reading skills are essential for standardized tests like the ACT and SAT. Students also need to be at a high enough reading level to succeed in college. At Learner, our reading tutors focus on building word recognition, vocabulary, and writing skills to boost each student’s confidence and reading test performance.

Essential life skills

Reading and other English language arts skills are applicable to daily life far beyond high school and college. A strong grasp of reading comprehension can open up countless career opportunities and also help students improve their creative writing skills. A personal tutor from Learner can give your child the ability to enjoy reading for pleasure.

Your child deserves the best online reading tutoring experience

When students struggle with reading, it can affect their self-confidence in all academic areas. Our tutors are English experts who teach each student at their own pace. With Learner, your child will get one-on-one attention and customized reading lessons from a patient personal tutor.

Why students love Learner.

Chelsea from Learner helped me to get a full ride to Duke University.

“Chelsea from Learner was the perfect match for me. She customized the training so that it would push me hard - but not too hard where I would get frustrated. I worked with Chelsea for years because she took a genuine interest in me and my future.”

"Stephanie taught me how to be more organized. I was getting Bs and Cs before I started working with her. I used to get overwhelmed before studying for a test. Stephanie taught me how to create “study guides” so I’d have all the big ideas in one place. I am now getting As and Bs and my parents are much happier."

"When I first started working with Alan, I told him I would never be good at math. I barely passed my first two years of high school math and I needed one more hard math class to graduate. Alan believed in me and worked with me on the basics. Little by little, he built up my confidence to the point where I realized I am good at math and I did well in the class."
