About the lesson

I primarily do summer enrichment and firmly believe that reading is more enjoyable when the student likes the subject they are reading about. Studies recently have shown that when students are reading about their interests (ie. letting students read news articles about Mars Rovers) at a higher level they will learn to read better. I also encourage students to read some genres more than others since some genres will naturally expand a vocabulary faster than traditional methods.

About Amelia

I am a Purdue Engineering student who has received multiple awards and for writing throughout my life. I have been giving lessons in reading for two years with a specialty for rapid advancement through reading "levels". I participated in a professional development lecture three years ago on how to best bring students that are behind for their age in reading up to par with their peers.

Details

My cancellation policy is a 12-hour minimum before the session without penalty, but if a cancellation is made within 12 hours of a session full cost is due. If three or more sessions are canceled within 12 hours of a session I reserve the right to no longer schedule meetings.

If I am teaching through a webcam I may ask a parent to print some materials for me so the student can physically hold what they are reading, as that is shown to improve comprehension.
