Reading / Writing Coach

Prometheus Reading / Writing Coach – Helping your student leap forward!

 

Why a Reading / Writing Specialist?
  • Teaching children to read and write requires that every child receive instruction at the level appropriate to his or her specific needs.
  • Our Reading and Writing Professionals, with their advanced degrees and years of experience, nurture reading and writing success.

Reading Coach

  Standardized tests are constructed on the premise that most students will not be capable of reading the passages and questions in the allotted time.

Reading Diagnostic Assessment

 

Bring your student in for a reading assessment, which:

·       Establishes your student’s Effective Reading Rate (ERR)

·       Detects reading readiness for standardized tests, such as SSAT, ISEE, HSPT, SAT, and ACT

·       Provides a diagnostic breakdown of reading comprehension strengths and weaknesses

 

These tests can:

  • Provide grade-level equivalence rankings, and detailed information about your students’ strengths and weaknesses
  • Help determine current capabilities and opportunities for improvement

 

Follow up – Prometheus will:

  • Deliver a written report within one week of the assessment and invite you to meet to discuss the report
  • Recommend programs to increase your student’s reading speed and comprehension

.

Writing Coach

Colleges repeatedly express concern about incoming students’ ability to coherently express themselves in writing

 

Bring your student in for a writing assessment, which:

·       Gauges grammar and writing proficiency

·       Determines grammar and writing readiness for standardized tests, such as SSAT, ISEE, HSPT, SAT, and ACT

·       Provides a diagnostic breakdown of grammar and writing strengths and weaknesses

 

These tests can:

  • Provide grade-level equivalence rankings and detailed information about your student’s strengths and weaknesses. Help determine current capabilities and opportunities for improvement.

 

Follow up – Prometheus will:

  • Deliver a written report within one week of the assessment and invite you to meet to discuss the report
  • Recommend programs to increase your student’s command of grammar and writing ability

Semi-private tutoring reduces the cost for each student. It is appropriate for students who know each other, have compatible schedules, get along well (particularly in the context of studies), and are studying at a similar academic level. That is, they are taking classes that are at a similar level of difficulty, and their grades in those classes are not significantly different. Note:  Students must jointly initiate semi-private tutoring. Prometheus does not match up students

** Discount is per hour, applied to the chosen program. For any unused portion of pre-paid package, the remaining credit is refundable, pro-rated, minus the pre-pay discount.

Reading/Writing Coach Program - Additional Details

 

Session Length

  • 1-1.5 hours

 

Number of Sessions

  • At the family’s discretion.
  • Recommended: 8-14 sessions, once or twice per week.

Homework

  • During the school year, this program relies primarily on applying the lessons to the student’s day-to-day class work and homework, so additional homework is kept at a minimum.
  • During the summer, we recommend the program rely upon the student’s summer reading assignments and subjects for which the student may want advance preparation.
