I have taught ESL at Cleveland Heights High School Night School to adults. In my classes were professionals seeking fluency to pass United States tests for certification in this country, and fluency in speaking, writing and reading.
I have taught reading to elementary students using phonics, grammar and vocabulary lessons to improve their ability to comprehend more advanced material.
I have had five years experience tutoring elementary students in the South Euclid-Lyndhurst school system. I have tutored bar-mitzvah students (who are 12-year olds) who have difficulties with the phonic system of reading Hebrew. So I have had experience with your son's age group and tutoring reading. My most successful technique is finding a subject that the student is interested in, therefore making the reading relevant to his life. I like to tutor in a library where there is a supply of materials from which to choose.
