How does Viva Phonics help students with reading?

Each phonics lesson is strategically designed to help your struggling reader master new skills and gain confidence in their reading ability.

Decoding

Readers start by increasing their understanding of letter-sound relationships. This is key to helping students recognize familiar words and decode new words. The ability to decode helps readers grasp new vocabulary and apply new terms correctly.

Fluency

Readers build reading fluency through repetition, practice and drills. This new ability to read words quickly, accurately and with expression will improve a student’s comprehension skills, increasing his appetite for reading and devouring all things words.

Spelling

Readers develop a rock-solid foundation in spelling through dictation exercises – an integral part of reading – by practicing the speech sounds verbally, and spelling those speech sounds accurately. A strong speller is a strong reader and writer!

We could not be happier with the results for our 7yo son. He was struggling in class, being bored and confused most of the time (especially with virtual learning setting). One-on-One approach helped build his confidence and skills set. Ms. Ellen is wonderful, attentive, supportive and kind. The approach works and we are hoping to meet all the goals!

My son has struggled in reading from the start. We had tried many different programs and tutors with no success and just more tears and frustration. Within a week of starting with Angelica my son said he liked his meeting with her and was excited to learn. In the time we have been working with Angelica he has come leaps and bounds from where he was. He is reading with confidence and excited about it. He wants to read and is so excited to sit down with a book and read to us, it’s not a fight anymore. Angelica has put a love of reading and learning back into my child. I would highly recommend her for any child who is behind or struggling. She has a gentle approach, yet keeps him very focused and engaged during each session.

My daughter has had difficulties reading since she began school. We have tried other tutoring programs with varying degrees of success. Since starting Viva Phonics, I have seen my daughter gain confidence and a love for reading. My daughter feels successful after every tutoring session. As a parent, I am always kept well informed of my daughter's progress. I cannot recommend this service enough, and grateful to Angelica and the Viva Phonics program.

Viva Phonics services is a great tutoring program. My 7 year old daughter has the pleasure of working with Angelica who is so amazing at her gift. My daughter went from lacking confidence to now building her confidence when reading. She is no longer shy and enjoys reading. The program is teaching your child the breakdown of words and it delivers what is promised the process is worth it.

Parent Reviews

“My daughter is autistic, dyslexic but also gifted. She has struggled in the public school system and started this class unable to read. By the end of three weeks, my daughter was reading short sentences and short paragraphs. I highly recommend this class.”

Stephanie M.

“Patient and kind. She was very good at explaining what the kids needed to do. We took all four classes from her and highly recommend her.”

Lara J.

“Our family can’t say ENOUGH about how WONDERFUL we think Ms. Lima is. Our 8YO son greatly struggles with reading, he has some learning disabilities and can get frustrated very easily. These Individual Tutoring sessions have REALLY been amazing. He is progressing quicker than we have ever seen and is doing so with little frustration. Watching his confidence grow and how he has started “self correcting”, makes us so happy to see. We truly feel that we have her to thank for this. He looks forward to his time with Ms. Lima. We HIGHLY recommend her for any children who may be struggling keeping up with reading, she makes this online tutoring a very easy process, always positive and has wonderful communication with parents.”

“Angelica is amazing. My 9 year old is dyslexic and way behind on reading. He has made great progress with Angelica. He does not get frustrated with her, she has a gentle approach and is always there to support Luke and answer any questions I may have. We will continue to use her for all his tutoring needs.”

Sherri L.

“My daughter has been struggling with reading and we enrolled her in this class to help support her gettin her up to speed. We have seen real progress through this class and it’s great that they provide an assessment at the beginning of the program and throughout the program where we can actually see improvements and where we can focus efforts. Angelica her teacher has been super helpful and communicative about things we can do to help and also about her progress. She is very patient with my daughter and my daughter enjoys the class. I highly recommend to any students who are struggling with reading.”
