UCF Master's Degree with 15+ years of tutoring experience

Education has always been a big part of my life. In grade school, my teachers would often ask me to work with other students in class who needed assistance with the current lesson. This gift of being able to help others resonated with me and I realized very quickly that everyone does not learn in the same way. In high school, I volunteered with students with special needs and discovered there are many ways to communicate and teach. At San ... See more

Educator Extraordinaire

The at-home-classroom is where not only formal education begins, but the love of learning is formed. Every child has the right to be taught in a way in which they are afforded the opportunity to observe and interact with core subjects. Students should be engaged during the lesson that they will be inspired further investigations and explorations into the content.

As an educator to young scholars I find it important to emphasize passion, determination, empathy and kindness in ... See more

Why You Need a Phonics Tutor

Reading is one of the most important aspects of any child’s development. Falling behind early on in reading can create a lifelong struggle with school and the learning process in general. Phonics is a great way to start your child off down a successful path. Phonics tutors use this different approach of teaching by associating sounds with letters or sets of letters in an alphabetic writing system. This certain style of teaching makes it easier for your child to recognize sounds in words which ultimately will help their spelling abilities. Studies show that children often struggle with reading because they are not able to distinguish the sounds in the alphabet in connection to the words they are reading. Overcoming this issue early on can be one of the main things that helps your child succeed academically.

Reading is a real struggle for most children. There are so many other things going on in their life, the last thing they want to do is read. On top of that, if they are having problems they definitely will not want to go over their reading skills. Because of this, it can be like pulling teeth to try to have your child practice reading. As a parent, there is only so much that you can do for them and if it is getting out of control you need to bring in the help of a private phonics tutor. We know that you want to help your child as much as possible and sometimes that is admitting “I need a phonics tutor.” Phonics is a fantastic way for your child to learn how to read but it has to be done right. To make sure that this happens you need to let HeyTutor find a language tutor who is specifically going to help with your child’s particular needs. This is the best way to ensure that your child is going to be able to read at the level that is required if not higher. You know that your child is fully capable they just need the right guidance.

Sometimes a child does not want to listen to their parents when it comes to reading. As mentioned, this can be boring and if it is a challenge they are going to act out. But all they need is to be taught from a different perspective than what they’ve have grown accustomed to. This will happen when you take a step outside of the box and find a “phonics tutor near me.” We have fantastic specialists who can assist your child get to the point where they can read and read well. To have a professional tutor who is dedicated to the success of your child is something that you will literally not get anywhere else. Our tutors will make sure that your child is having a blast while learning this material. At the end of the day, reading should be something that brings them joy and not frustration. When you find a phonics tutor you are looking for someone that you can trust with your child’s development. Reading is incredibly important and a skill that your child will have with them for the rest of their lives. So they have to pick it up first the right time or risk running into issues throughout their lifetime. Reading is not going to go anywhere, in fact, there will only be more and more reading to go as they continue on their educational journey. So they need to get it right now.

Our tutors will be helping your child read and spell, which are two critical skills that they absolutely must learn. So this will be a relationship that helps shape your child into a fantastic student and person. When they are winning the spelling bee one day or flying through the reading section on their ACT to get into their dream college, they will be using skills that have been passed down to them from a wonderful tutor. A phonics tutor will help not only your child but also your entire household. When your child is having difficulty with this subject matter it can rub off on the rest of the family and cause several other problems. The activities that are given to your child can also be used by you to make sure that you are positively reinforcing these skills into their brain. This way the lessons go further than just the sessions with the tutor

Benefits of Hiring a Phonics Tutor

There is much to be gained when your child gets to work with a phonics tutor. You will find joy in watching your little one gain more confidence in reading after each session. They will be more vocal and also read quicker but also more accurately with phonics tutoring. Additionally, your child will acquire more vocabulary on a daily basis. The opportunity to get this type of education for your child will be something that they truly appreciate later on in life. Show them how much fun they can have from reading by putting them in contact with a fabulous phonics tutor.

At HeyTutor we hate the fact that people often think of boredom when they think of learning. We think this is inaccurate and is only a thought because people are in the wrong environment. Our tutors look to make the experience one that your child will never forget. This is mainly because your child is going to need their ability to read for the rest of their life, and creating fun activities is the best way for them to get over the struggle hump. How it works is that our English tutor takes note of how your student learns and what they are struggling with learning. From there they will use their years of experience teaching other students who have trouble with reading to create a lesson plan. This plan will not be the same plan that was used for every other student, however. In fact, it will be a completely unique approach that is entirely built around your student. The plan will also consist of a bunch of fun activities that your child will be able to utilize for the remainder of their time trying to learn how to read. Our tutors do not want your child to be completely reliant on their tutor. They want the complete opposite. What they want is for your child to become independent in their reading ability and not need their tutor anymore. This is when our tutors have known their job is completed. But it starts with your child being able to work hard and listen to their tutor but also to spend time reading.

Their tutor will give them exercises that they will be able to use when they are alone which will instill great reading habits. A session with HeyTutor goes beyond just sitting down with your student. However, this is also another major key to the success of your child. When they are able to be comfortable in their own environment it will make sure that they are more receptive to reading. They will not have to worry about being criticized as they would in a classroom. Instead, they can read with a certified professional who will provide immediate feedback. This is a nice environment where your child is getting the focus that they absolutely need so that they are able to really learn how to read.

The benefits of working with one of our tutors are clear after just a few sessions of your child meeting with them. They will be prepared to handle whatever their teacher throws their way and will be reading at a high level in no time. Often, when trying to read in a classroom setting there is too much going on for your child to really learn how to read. They need to come into class with the basics so that they can add on. Our tutors will give them this foundation that is required for them to meet success. If your child is having any issues while they are in school our tutors can assist with this issue as well. With a few sessions, your child will start to see that they are picking up on things that in class they previously were not understanding. This could be for a slew of reasons but it usually because your child is not clicking with the teacher.


If you've ever wondered if there is "phonics tutoring near me" you are in luck. HeyTutor connects you with tutors in your area who will work with your child one-on-one to improve their skills and prepare them for success. Being able to pronounce words correctly means that your child will read more fluently while also comprehending. HeyTutor is a great place to find fantastic tutoring for your little one. Our tutors are trained professionals who are patient and great with kids. They dedicate their work to helping your child succeed. If you want your child’s reading skills to fly through the roof then reaching this goal has never been easier. Check us out today and find the perfect phonics tutor for your child.
