BESPOKE PRIVATE READING TUITION

We start with an initial pupil assessment. We encourage parents to stay for this session, to gain insight into reading strengths and barriers. Your local Reading Doctor will give you an overview of the intervention and resources we use.  After this, The Reading Doctor will give you feedback, make specific recommendations and advise on a bespoke action plan defining a plan.  You can decide if you would like any further weekly, fortnightly, one hour or 3/4-hour lessons either online or in person.  This will be the start of your child’s ‘Reading Journey’ and put them on the path to becoming a successful reader.

The Reading Doctor uses carefully selected resources to engage and motivate even the most disengaged learners.  Specialist reading schemes are used for older pupils.  These are sensitive to their reading interests as well as their reading level. in addition, each Reading Doctor pupil is given access to an online reading resource. 

 The Reading Doctor materials are kept safe in their very own Reading Doctor book bag which can be taken home between sessions.
