He is now in the second grade and reading third grade material. The trick to reading is to gain fluency by using phonics and phonemic awareness to process words quickly. This enables a child to concentrate on the content of the material. I have completed a Master's degree in Secondary Education. My emphasis was in math.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
