2nd Grade Reading Tutors

Is your second grader still struggling with reading? Don’t wait any longer.

A Viva Phonics tutor will provide reading tutoring lessons to help your child become a strong, confident reader.

Does your 2nd grader need a reading tutor? 

Viva Phonics offers online reading tutoring for second graders. Our second grade reading tutoring lessons include a review of first grade, kinder, and pre-k skills as needed.

Does your child often guess, skip words, depend on pictures to read, and struggle with comprehension? Viva Phonics’ 2nd grade tutors can help!

A 2nd grader is expected to read quickly, accurately, and with expression. Fluency supports comprehension. A student who is struggling with decoding will most likely struggle with comprehension.

How fluently should second graders read? According to DIBELS, a trusted screening measure, by the end of second grade, students should be able to read about 94 words per minute with 96% accuracy.

If your second grader is struggling with reading, schedule a free reading screening. Our second grade reading tutors can help your struggling reader learn to read!

My son worked with Viva Phonics for his entire 2nd grade school year. We saw tremendous improvement over the course of 9 months–his confidence and his grades are proof of that!

Viva phonics has been amazing and my daughter LOVES her tutor Ms. Shannon! My daughter is a struggling reader and in just a few short months, I have seen so much progress with her reading. She is also more confident and actually likes reading now. Her teachers have also seen the huge improvement from her test scores to her entire attitude about reading. Thank you so much Viva Phonics!

I totally recommend the Viva Phonics program. It is very well thought and organized and I’m really proud about the progress my son has made. I like the way that each session is structured, and my son loves it too. It has the right combination of games, repetition and practice. I like the way he gets immediate feedback and learning is corrected and or reinforced on the spot. His teacher is amazing and knows very well how to keep him engaged. They’re good. You can see that they are professional and they know what they’re doing.

My daughter is in first grade and hated to read and was behind in her reading. She is now reading daily, enjoying it, and right on track with her progress. Her instructor, Nicole, does great with her and plays a variety of games to keep her engaged.

Great program! My son had zero confidence when reading, and wanted nothing to do with it. He recently asked if he could pick out books from the library! Ms. Allison has been great with him, and he enjoys his weekly classes with her.

My 7 year old is showing so much progress since we started in November. His 2nd grade teacher began to notice improvements after just 3 weeks of beginning the sessions. I am very grateful that we found this program! Ms. Allison and Mrs. Angelica are awesome!!

I noticed that my daughter was having issues with decoding multi-syllable words. As a certified teacher, I tried to help her, but we were "bumping heads". While being a virtual learner in 3rd grade half of last year, I signed her up for Viva Phonics. Her former tutor Ms. Ellen and her current tutor Mrs. Angelica has helped her to fill in the missing gaps with her reading. I am highly impressed with the growth that my daughter has gained since starting the program. I would recommend Viva Phonics to anyone who has a struggling reader.

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.
