Give Your Child A Boost-Up in Their Reading, Writing, and Math Skills This Summer!







Summer is fast approaching and there’s no better time than now to sign your child up for our wonderful summer tutoring workshops at our Alpharetta office!


We offer programs in Reading, Writing, and Math Skills to bridge the summer transition gap for students. This year is a particularly important time to focus on these basic skills, especially since many students have missed so much academic understanding due to the pandemic gap in learning from the previous two years. Our workshops focus on benefitting the students with the basic necessary skills to help them reach the next level in the Fall with the ease of transition — a boost-up in their learning. We will teach Reading compr...

On Reading and Writing Instruction-

temp-post-image


Helping children of all ages thrive in reading and writing skills is the most important goal for the Teachers as Tutors team. Parents, let us face it, the Pandemic had serious negative effects on many children. In the early grades, k-2, children were often not able to access the basics of social skills such as developing relationships with others, use of expressive language and even development of basic phonics skills because masks impaired the children’s abilities to look at lip formations. Many students have learned to form letters incorrectly because they did not have direct instruction in forming letters. In the upper- elementary and middle school grades some students did not consi...

Individualized Education

Individualized education is not only for students in Special Ed, it's for everyone! The team here at Teachers As Tutors understands that every student learns best in a different way. Whether that be visual, auditory, reading & writing, or kinesthetic, during our intakes we get to learn about the students and take into account all of their needs in order to create an tutoring plan for each individual student.


Visual- Visual learners are able to retain information when it’s presented to them charts, graphs, pictures and more.


Auditory- As you may have guessed, this is referring to those who learn by listening to information being presented. These learners tend to do well in groups, lecture...

Let's Individualize a learning plan for your child to be successful!

Not all students are alike nor families for that matter. Teachers as Tutors does not have a one-size fits all approach to working with children. We look at each child and their family as unique, so we will want to tailor a plan that's just as unique. When you call to set-up tutoring for your child, we will schedule an intake meeting for your family. At this meeting the parent can share work samples, progress reports, or if applicable an IEP to help your tutor better know your child. It is at this meeting we can layout a roadmap for the coming tutoring sessions. Further, the tutor will then take the paperwork to study before the first tutoring session with your child.


There are many options in...

Keep It Simple, But Be Effective!

Keep it simple, but be effective this summer! You can help your child enrich their skills while riding in the car each day. Start by using simple games like I Spy, and find alphabet letters in signs, license plates, or wherever you can find them while riding in the car. When my girls were little, we sang learning songs or counted backwards and then forwards while killing time waiting in traffic. I encourage 3rd grade kiddos to go over multiplication tables with their parents while riding in the car as well.


Reading comprehension is improved when you have a great vocabulary. Give your child a new vocabulary word of the day or week. Use the new word in as many ways as possible in converstation ...
