What Our Families Say

Viva Phonics is an amazing tutoring program! My son enjoys working with Angelica and has made significant progress. When we started a few months ago, my son's teacher stated that he was reading below grade level. Now he is reading at the same level as most of his peers. I highly recommend Viva Phonics for anyone looking for a tutor for their child.
Angelica has been wonderful with my two girls! She is Amazing! My girls where not confident in reading before starting with Angelica. Now they are feeling confident and excited to tutor with her during the week.
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.

I’m Angelica and I created this program when I started working 1:1 with students who struggled with reading. I found that many times students were being sent home with sight word lists that had no logical pattern and included words that could easily be decoded. Students weren’t able to blend simple words and when they didn’t know a word they would just guess!

The only way to fill the skills gaps was to relearn to read. Starting from scratch ensured that students had the foundational skills needed to grasp more complex concepts within the Viva Phonics program and beyond.

We know that the intellectual crippling of children is caused overwhelmingly by faulty instruction-not by faulty children.

The future of your child depends on reading well.

where will they be if their reading journey starts now?

Our Approach

While studying the Alphabetic Principle students build the 5 essential reading skills: Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Vocabulary, Fluency and Comprehension.

Decoding

Readers start by increasing their understanding of letter-sound
relationships. This is key to helping beginning readers 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 component to reading – by practicing the speech sounds verbally, and spelling those speech sounds accurately. A strong speller is a strong reader and writer!

We are so very grateful to have her in our son’s corner.  

These past 4 months Angelica has developed our 6-year-old from someone who was afraid of reading and did not like it to someone who truly loves it. He was a good bit behind for his grade level and with her contributions and the implementation of a course of action have contributed significantly to his success. Above all, she is caring and genuinely wants your child to grow and improve. We are so very grateful to have her in our son's corner.

A complete educator.

Angelica serves as a tutor to my grandson Israel who is ten years old and a fourth grader. Angelica is fantastic! A complete educator. Israel has been working with tutors for the past three years, however, he has not been able to make as much progress as he has since starting to work with Angelica.
