Literacy is a fundamental skill that plays a pivotal role in an individual's academic, social, and personal development. Struggling readers face significant challenges in acquiring literacy skills, which can have detrimental effects on their overall educational journey and future prospects. Tutoring can be an effective intervention to address the specific needs of struggling readers and help them overcome their reading difficulties.

This comprehensive tutoring framework provides a systematic and research-based approach to support struggling readers. It outlines effective strategies, techniques, and resources to help tutors create individualized learning plans that address the unique needs of each student. By implementing this framework, tutors can help struggling readers improve their reading skills and achieve reading success.

Assessment and Diagnosis

The initial step in tutoring struggling readers is to conduct a thorough assessment to identify their specific areas of difficulty. This assessment should include:

  • Phonological awareness: the ability to recognize and manipulate the sounds in spoken words.
  • Phonics: the relationship between letters and sounds.
  • Fluency: the ability to read words and text accurately, quickly, and with expression.
  • Comprehension: the ability to understand the meaning of what they read.
  • Vocabulary: the knowledge of words and their meanings.

Based on the assessment results, the tutor can diagnose the student's reading difficulties and develop an individualized tutoring plan that addresses their specific needs.

Instructional Strategies and Techniques

The tutoring framework outlines a range of instructional strategies and techniques to improve the literacy skills of struggling readers. These include:

Phonics Instruction

Phonics instruction is a systematic approach to teaching the relationship between letters and sounds. It helps students develop the foundation they need to decode words and build fluency.

Fluency Building

Fluency building exercises help students develop the ability to read words and text accurately, quickly, and with expression. This includes repeated reading, timed reading, and choral reading.

Comprehension Strategies

Comprehension strategies help students understand the meaning of what they read. These include story mapping, summarizing, and making predictions.

Vocabulary Development

Vocabulary development activities help students expand their knowledge of words and their meanings. This includes vocabulary games, word lists, and reading texts that expose students to new vocabulary.

Differentiated Instruction

Differentiated instruction is a teaching approach that tailors instruction to the individual needs of each student. This may involve adjusting the content, process, or product of instruction to meet the student's learning style and readiness level.

When tutoring struggling readers, it is important to use differentiated instruction to address their unique needs. For example, a student who struggles with phonics may need more explicit instruction in letter-sound relationships, while a student who struggles with comprehension may benefit from guided reading and discussion.

Progress Monitoring

Regular progress monitoring is essential to track the student's progress and make adjustments to the tutoring plan as needed. This involves using assessments and other data collection methods to measure the student's growth and identify areas where they need additional support.

Resources

There are a wide range of resources available to support tutors and struggling readers. These include:

  • Educational websites: such as Reading A-Z, Starfall, and Khan Academy.
  • Reading intervention programs: such as Orton-Gillingham, Wilson Reading System, and Lindamood-Bell.
  • Professional development opportunities: such as workshops, conferences, and online courses.

This tutoring framework provides a comprehensive approach to supporting struggling readers and helping them improve their literacy skills. By implementing this framework, tutors can create individualized learning plans that address the unique needs of each student and help them achieve reading success.

It is important to remember that tutoring is a collaborative process that involves the tutor, the student, and the parents or guardians. By working together, we can help struggling readers overcome their challenges and reach their full potential.
