Dear Parents,

 

Thank you for your interest. Below is an overview of my reading intervention  and ISEE prep programs.

 

READING INTERVENTION

 

I work one on one with students two times a week with each session lasting one hour. Before starting, I conduct an assessment which takes up to an hour and a half to assess fluency and comprehension as well as strengths and weaknesses and any possible learning issues. After tallying all the scores and going over my notes, I put the findings in a 4-5 page report. This report serves me as a guide in creating a program conducive to student’s specific needs. The intervention programs are between 14 and 18 sessions long (7-9 weeks).

 

The sessions are composed of several sections with more focus on those areas that are lacking the most. For example, if the student reads with low fluency more emphasis is placed on bringing the fluency up, and as the fluency improves, more emphasis is given to comprehension. If the student reads with high fluency, we focus on different aspects of comprehension.

 

I work my students hard, and they are usually tired after each session, but I also make it fun, and they do enjoy it. During each session, I find ways of boosting their self-confidence which helps them become confident readers.

 

My approach is goal oriented: I don’t believe in working with a student for an entire school year just to keep her head above the water. My goal for the students is to bring them up to a certain level of reading fluency and comprehension. For that reason, I create individual reading intervention programs for each student.

 

ISEE Prep

 

I start with an assessment which takes about 3 hours. I administer the practice test by simulating actual testing situation, collect additional information from the student and put all the findings in a 5-6 page report. Based on the findings, I create the prep program for each student with more focus on those areas that need the most improvement. The prep program is usually 15 to 18 hours long. After we finish all the sessions, I administer another practice test.

 

 

 

Each session is 1 . 5 hour long. In terms of math, I cover all the content and the types of questions that the student will encounter on the actual test. I also work on test taking strategies that are best suited for ISEE. In my experience, majority of students run out of time on math sections during my initial assessment, so I make sure that does not happen on the actual test. We do timed exercises for the students get used to working with time constraints.

 

 

 

As for language arts, I do reading interventions throughout the school year, so I have a lot of different tools I can use to improve student’s score.
