Right Track Reading Tutoring Services and Fees
Evaluations: Individual evaluation of reading skills. This requires approximately
an 1 hour meeting with parent and student. Depending on the age of the student, Miscese
will evaluate phonemic awareness, knowledge of the complete code, reading ability
and comprehension. The parent is provided with a summary of this evaluation and a
recommended program of action to help the student develop necessary skills. Evaluations
are necessary to determine the appropriate individual plan of action for the student.
There is NO obligation for this FREE evaluation.
Individual Tutoring: Tutoring programs are individually arranged for the student
based on evaluation results, the student’s unique situation and the family’s needs.
Tutoring programs include:
- Beginning Reading Instrution - to teach young children how to read (usually kindergarten
and 1st grade ages)
- Advancing Reading Skills - to directly help novice/beginning readers advance skills
and learn to handle complexities, read multisyllable words, build fluency and develop
comprehension skills (usually 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades).
- Reading Remediation - to help struggling readers acquire necessary skills and develop
proficient reading (students 3rd grade and older who struggle with reading)
- Mathematics - while Miscese specializes in reading instruction, she also tutors
students in math through high school geometry and algebra (Yes, I am one of those
people who love math!)
Schedule: Tutoring schedules are individually arranged to meet the needs of the student
and the parents and to fit scheduling constraints. Tutoring sessions are typically
30-60 minutes depending on the age of the student. The total time requirement for
an effective tutoring program will vary greatly depending on the individual’s situation.
Total tutoring time to acquire skills is affected by the student’s age, current skills,
the skills that need to be developed, the student’s level of effort, supplemental
work at home and other factors. Although it varies, effective reading skills development
or reading remediation tutoring programs typically require 20 to 40 hours of total
tutoring time. This is best accomplished in 3 to 4 sessions/week for 6 to 12 weeks).
Tutoring schedules are set by individual needs and the student’s progress toward
specific skill acquisition. If your child progesses faster, fewer tutoring sessions
will be needed.
Tutoring opportunities are limited! Please e-mail or call Miscese to arrange tutoring.
In general, Miscese has more openings in the summer than during the school year.
Individual Tutoring Rates: Tutoring rates are $20/hour. ($10 for ½ hour session;
