tutoring

RWI offers tutoring services to assist students to read, write, comprehend and perform study word analysis.

RWI helps your child improve his/her literacy “tools”: print awareness, phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, spelling, writing and text comprehension.

The acts of reading and writing are reciprocal, and the “writing knowledge serves as a resource of information that can help the reader. “ Students keep a journal where they work on a variety of writing genres, conduct word work, log vocabulary examples, record comprehension strategies and keep inferences made during reading.

The positive response from students and parents reinforce our belief that the quality literacy habits students develop while participating in RWI tutoring carry over into their home and school literacy activities.

With RWI Collaborate, students receive individualized guidance from a highly qualified tutor. Online sessions can be used as a supplement to your child’s in-home tutoring sessions or as the main method of instruction. Using the online system, students and tutors interact (in real time) through a user-friendly virtual video conferencing platform, where they can upload, share, and edit documents.

Middle School / Junior High Students receive a customized curriculum to ensure success

Expectations for academic achievement change in Middle School and Junior High. We often see students encountering difficulties because they are unable to approach assignments in a functional way, known as Executive Functioning.
Executive functioning is used to perform activities such as planning, organizing, strategizing, paying attention to and remembering details, and managing time and space. If a student struggles in any of these areas, regardless of intelligence, grades can plummet, along with confidence.

Recognizing the importance of executive functioning, our instructors are selected for their expertise in study strategies, organization, and innovative approaches to learning.

Our program embodies three core components—Vocabulary, Comprehension and Writing—as well as other cross content instruction in science and social studies. RWI customizes the student’s curriculum based on homework, current class projects, and exams. We look at informal and formal assessments, such as MAP, when deciding the best course of instructional method. We cover a full range reading assessment followed by the same quality, targeted instruction.

Our Middle School and Junior High tutoring programs empower students and builds their self-esteem as they begin mastering higher level subjects and preparing for high school.
