Creating a Bridge to Reading
Knowing how to build words by blending sounds may seem like a simple task, but not for every child. There’s an art to teaching phonemic awareness, so your child feels confident in making the jump into reading.
Our reading tutors understand that each child learns in different ways, so they pace fun phonemic awareness activities to your child’s skill level. When your child understands the relationship among the sounds of words, the next step — reading — becomes a true adventure.

Using phonemic awareness activities, personal instruction and fun motivation, our reading tutors teach your child how to:
- Understand the sounds associated with letters of the alphabet
- Learn how to build words by blending sounds
- Recognize that new words can be formed by removing sounds from other words (i.e., remove the /h/ sound from hat to form a new word: at)
