Gentle Persuasion Tutoring focuses on teaching both children and adults to read. We use the latest scientific understanding of how people learn to read and tailor our approach to the individual’s particular needs. We use positive teaching methods that are effective at both teaching reading and building confident learners.
We focus on alphabet, phonological awareness, phonics rules, high frequency word memorization, and comprehension. Every session includes each of these areas of learning. We work with children and adults who have a variety of learning challenges and tailor our approach to their particular needs. We use the Barton Method if it is appropriate for the particular student. We look forward to working with you or your child in the future.
