Thinking Caps Tutoring has been a life saver. Not only do they address the material in a constructive and creative way, Thinking Caps tutors are warm and friendly and make learning fun. As a parent it is reassuring to know that my child is getting first rate educational support while building her self esteem.

Announcing our Comprehensive Reading Instruction Program!

Did you know that nearly 40% of children have some challenges with learning to read? Starting instruction early is of vital importance in helping students overcome these challenges. Thinking Caps is excited to announce our new Comprehensive Reading Instruction program led by trained reading specialists.

Our new program will:

  • PROMOTE phonological and letter awareness to help students when confronted with the task of decoding words and identifying various letters and sounds.
  • INSTILL phonemic awareness and word-attack skills through multi-sensory, motor-articulatory awareness and feedback components in order to build awareness of the motor-articulation gestures involved in producing speech sounds.
  • BOLSTER a struggling reader's performance in letter grades.
  • INCORPORATE guided, repetitive, and independent reading practices through systemic, explicit phonics. This instruction helps students become skilled at using phonemic decoding skills while reading.
  • DEVELOP comprehension skills by improving decoding and reading fluency.
  • HELP STUDENTS BECOME active readers, which will increase their interest level and help with the retention of information read.

Because every student has different needs, we utilize multidisciplinary techniques and interventions. Our goal is to encourage the student to understand and further develop his or her personal reading style, thereby ensuing ongoing growth and literary development. [Learn More]
