Language Arts

  • Reading: Through our unique phonics program we’ll help your child learn to recognize letter sounds and decode words. By understanding how sounds combine to create words, students can improve their ability to read fluently and accurately.
  • Reading Comprehension: Learning to understand and attach meanings to the words in a text is an important part of reading. We will help students identify main concepts and relate what they read to real-life experiences so that they can understand, remember, and share what they read with others. We believe that with encouragement, all children can acquire the skills and confidence needed to develop a love of reading. 
  • Writing: Creating a strong writing foundation when students are young fosters a love of writing. We challenge our students to be creative and think critically in order to develop their writing skills.

"My daughter’s reading progressed by leaps and bounds with tutoring by Partners in Learning. Moreover, her increased confidence carried into other subjects at school. She wants to go to tutoring. And she loves her tutor. Partners in Learning takes an individualized and personal approach to their students. I’m so glad we found them. Partners in Learning is one of the best things we have done for our daughter."
