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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Many high school students who struggle with reading feel frustrated and ashamed. If that’s your child, it’s important to choose a tutor who can build up confidence as well as reading skills.
With Learner, your child will be matched with the perfect online tutor who has a compatible personality and teaching style. Our reading tutors are passionate educators who can create the ideal classroom setting and move and the right pace for each student.
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."

Finding the perfect English Language Arts reading tutor for you or your child is no easy task. Unfortunately, while doing a google search for nearby tutors may seem like a quick fix, it’s often not the most effective way to find a compatible tutor. Rather than try to find someone in your neighborhood or hometown, opting for an online ELA reading tutor is a fantastic alternative.
Over the last couple of years, more and more tutors have been switching to online platforms. By opting for a virtual tutoring experience you can get access to qualified and experienced tutors and niche course options that may not be available in your location. Whether your child is learning English as a second language, wants to improve upon their reading fluency, or is simply looking to get ahead in their ELA class curriculum, there will be a tutor that specializes in your desired area of expertise. Instead of finding that compatible tutor yourself, Learner will do the heavy lifting of finding a tutor that specializes in your desired subject matter and teaching style.
One main concern that people tend to have about online tutoring is that the virtual experience is not as impactful as an in-person experience. But the fact of the matter is, virtual classrooms offer many of the same benefits as in-person ones and more. For instance, virtual tutoring platforms such as Learner record every tutoring session. These recorded lessons double as study tools that students can go back to whenever they need to.
Both online and in-person tutoring can help students significantly improve their reading comprehension and creating writing skills, get better grades, and prepare for standardized tests. With an online service, however, you can access the best experts from around the world and arrange lessons at times that work with your student’s schedule.
All of our tutors must have a least a bachelor’s degree and several years of teaching English language arts. They teach students effectively using proven strategies like the Orton-Gillingham methodology.
