Summer Tutoring Programs
Dan L Duncan Reading Initiative
Our mission is to enhance children’s opportunities for successful living by providing them with individualized, research-based assessment and clinical services. Our summer program provides skills for success in reading for the upcoming school year. Our programs target both struggling students as well as students with grade level academic skills.
We offer low tutor-to-student ratios (1:1) for PreK-8. All intervention programs are evidence-based and have been identified as effective approaches to reading instruction. Based on assessment results and needs, an individualized instructional plan will be implemented in the following areas.
|Phonemic Awareness||Phonics||Word Attack Skills and Spelling||Listening and Reading Comprehension||Vocabulary and Fluency|
|Rhyming||Letter Names||Decoding||Retell||Multiple Meanings|
|Sentence Segmentation||Letter Sounds||Prefixes||Sequencing||Synonyms|
|Blending||Advanced Letter||Suffixes||Story Grammar||Examples and Non-Examples|
|Initial/Final Sounds||Sound Combinations||Homonyms||Character Mood||Expression|
|Substituting Sounds||Inflectional Endings||Summarizing||Timed Readings|
|Syllables||Multisyllabic Words||Main Idea|
|Deleting Sounds||Compound Words||Inference|
Our comprehensive program placement consists of a combination of norm-referenced and criterion-referenced tests. The placement test takes approximately one hour to complete. At the end of each summer session, post assessments are administered to provide results. Once registration is complete you will be contacted to schedule an appointment for the assessment. In order to gather the most current skill level for each student, assessments will be scheduled during early May.
We offer low tutor-to-student ratios (1:1) for kindergarten through third grade. Our intervention programs are evidence based and have been identified as effective approaches to math instruction. Based on each child’s individual needs, an individualized instructional plan will be implemented in a variety of areas.
