  3. As an Elementary School Tutor, I am often given the children who are having difficulty with reading…usually the ones others have given up on. I am able to help 95% of them with two simple things, one of which is so in line with the movie above:

    1. Usually they have learned to enunciate some of the phonic sounds incorrectly which makes it difficult for them to blend the sounds to form words. This is easy to correct.

    2. Secondly, they often have accepted the idea they can’t learn to read like other kids. This is a self esteem issue. So in every tutoring session I have at least two times when we form a circle and the kids validate each other (build self-esteem). Example: A piece of paper is taped to each persons back, than each student writes on every other student’s paper something they like about them…it must be true, and must be positive. The kids love this, and are hungry for it. That is also easy to do.

    I also put more emphasis on their successes than I do their mistakes in every way possible. It is amazing how these simple things work again and again at any age level.
