Reading Comprehension

Many students struggle in school because they lack the necessary reading comprehension skills. Our classes teach them to analyze passages for content enabling them to answer the kinds of questions that typically appear on reading comprehension tests, as well as to improve their understanding of assigned texts.

Better skills in reading comprehension have shown a marked improvement in all academic areas. These skills are required well beyond high school in all levels of post-secondary education.

This program is appropriate for students in grades 1-12. You will see a marked improvement in vocabulary, comprehension, reading speed and fact retention and recall.

A customized study plan will be designed after the student has taken a reading comprehension diagnostic test, which we will use to assess and identify problem areas.
