Reading

“The more that you read, the more things you know. The more that you learn, the more places you will go.” – Dr. Seuss

To some children, reading can be as challenging as eating brussels sprouts. They tend to undervalue the importance of reading just as they do eating brussels sprouts and other vegetables. After early childhood, reading, in one form or another, becomes our primary learning methodology, other than personal experience. Since our reading skills influence our ability to learn, weak reading skills directly increase difficulty in all subjects. Conversely, strong reading skills enable your child to grasp concepts and theories more easily, allowing her a head start on every assignment and in her education as a whole.

Here at Big Brains Education, our reading tutors, we provide our reading students with the necessary tools for a well-rounded education. Our experienced reading tutors are passionate individuals who share the common belief that reading extends beyond the classroom into everyday life, and that every child can be equipped with the valuable reading skills to become curious explorers of the written world. Using a reading curriculum comprised of a unique mix of phonetics, vocabulary, comprehension, and inferential skill building lessons, customized into unique lesson plans based on your child’s skills and weaknesses, our reading program ensures your child’s rapid progress to becoming a well-rounded, high-achieving learner begins right here, right now.
