A Viva Phonics Tutor Can Help Your Child Learn to Read

Helping a Struggling Reader

An online phonics tutor can help your child learn to read with fluency and confidence. As struggling readers progress and move up grade levels in school, the disparity between their lack of reading skills and others in their class may widen. This is the time when we realize something needs to be done and our online phonics tutors can help.

This program is systematic and very thorough - perfect for building confidence! Even in just a few months, we've seen a big improvement in reading and spelling. If you've got a struggling perfectionist who needs help with reading, definitely try out Viva Phonics.

Angelica has been a blessing as she really assisted my child to improve not only in reading but also in comprehension. He started out being behind at school and he caught up with the help on Viva Phonics! Thank you!

Our daughter has been working with Angelica for about a year and a half now and we have been so happy with how much Viva Phonics has helped her. Reading was a huge struggle for her, and more often than not, homework and any attempt at reading would end in tears and frustration. Now she is reading fluently at grade level, for fun and asking for us to buy her more books. Angelica is patient, helps her work through her frustrations, and keeps her on task during tutoring sessions. I would highly recommend Viva Phonics to anyone with a child who is struggling with reading.

Our child has been working with Nicole for several months and has shown great improvement in her confidence. She is in high school, but learning English as a second language. Although this program is geared towards elementary school children, the instructor has shown great flexibility in working with our child who is older. Highly recommend Viva Phonics!

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!!

Imagine your child in just a few weeks…

where will they be if their reading journey starts now?

All you’ll need is a reliable internet connection and a tablet, laptop, or desktop computer. Your child will learn to read while engaging in fun lessons with their tutor. Get your reader started on their journey into cracking the reading code!

Where will they be if they don’t?

Don’t leave reading to chance.

Did you know that your child’s ability to read is linked to his or her self-esteem and social life? It’s true.
And, according to a recent fact sheet and literacy bulletin from RIFReading is Fundamental

  • 65% of fourth graders read at or below the basic level
  • 34% of children entering kindergarten lack the basic word skills to learn
    how to read
  • The first three years of school are a critical to reading and progressing to reading at an advanced level

Why Viva Phonics

One-On-One Learning

A virtual reading tutor guides your child through their reading journey. One-on-one instruction allows your child to receive full attention and is an overall more customized learning experience. Our goal is to instill confidence in readers and help them become self-sufficient learners.

Evidence-Based Reading Instruction

Explicit, systematic phonics instruction has been proven to be an effective method for teaching reading. The online phonics program follows a well-planned system that progresses step-by-step from learning the letter sounds to reading words, sentences and stories.

For Readers of All Ages

The online phonics resources are designed with older students in mind. Readers feel confident as they work on the targeted literacy skills without feeling self-conscious about their current reading ability. Middle school and high school students who need a review of foundational reading skills will feel comfortable learning from the online phonics resources.

Sessions Are Frequent and Engaging

The National Reading Panel’s study on teaching children how to read found that shorter sessions were more effective than longer programs. Each online session with Viva Phonics is focused, direct, and targets the necessary skills that help students become successful readers. Frequent lessons provide students more opportunities to practice and master new skills.

Flexible Payment Options and Scheduling

We offer weekly and biweekly payment options. Once you’re ready to get started, we can discuss how to best include the reading lessons into your child’s schedule. Progress checks are completed every 6 weeks and you have complete access to all program materials. Rates start at $65 per week.

About Viva Phonics

I’m Angelica and I created this online reading intervention 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.

After more than a century of frustration, it has now been shown that the brain can be rewired and that struggling children can become skilled readers. Sally Shaywitz, M.D., Overcoming Dyslexia

Miss. Angelica is amazing. She was super patient and helpful with my daughter. I truly appreciated her openness and honesty in regards to the learning disabilities my child may face when it comes to reading. I highly recommend her and cannot thank her enough for her professionalism while working with my daughter.
