Reading and Literacy Tuition for Primary School Pupils

At Premier Tuition Centre, primary school grinds in reading and literacy are:

  • Explicit
  • Sequential
  • Cumulative
  • Multi-sensory

We use a combination of evidence-based approaches, strategies and methodologies to suit the specific learning needs of each individual child.

Some of the areas that we focus on include:

  • Decoding and encoding skills
  • Phonemic segmentation and blending
  • Phonemic / phonological awareness
  • High frequency / sight words
  • Comprehension skills
  • Fluency
  • Spelling

Each child is assessed prior to commencing tuition using a range of standardised and diagnostic assessments that identify their specific strengths and weaknesses. This allows us to create a personalised programme of tuition targeted to their unique learning needs.

Who is this suitable for?

Reading and literacy tuition is available to primary school pupils from Senior Infants to 6th Class. Some of our pupils have been diagnosed with a specific learning difficulty, such as dyslexia, while others have simply fallen behind in school. We also offer reading and literacy tuition to gifted primary school children children who are in the well-above average ability range in order to challenge and extend their learning.

How will this benefit my child?

Children who receive reading and literacy tuition at Premier Tuition Centre benefit from increased literacy levels as well as increased confidence and self-esteem.

They are getting on great, we are delighted. Best decision we ever made, and I mean that. Killian is a new child, he's super confident, he loves his words now and homework is so fast & easy & no rows. Killian adores Ciara. She gave him a level 3 book to practice at home & he does it every evening.

I can’t recommend Premier Tuition enough. With schools closed during lockdown and working from home I found it difficult to keep on top of home schooling with my 5 year old. I booked my daughter in for two 30 minute sessions a week. Clare the tutor was fantastic. Plus it gave me peace of mind knowing my daughter was getting that extra bit of help during lockdown.
