Reading Specialists vs. Tutors

A Reading Specialist receives extensive education and training on identifying and dealing with specific reading challenges.  They are equipped with many tools to adapt to each student’s needs.  Cheryl recognizes that one-on-one sessions are the best way for a student to get the focus and attention needed to reach his or her potential.  Tutors often work solely with groups, covering a variety of subjects.  They generally work with material that is provided by the student, and are not trained to identify or handle specific challenges that a student may face.  There are certainly instances when a tutor may be what you or your student needs, but it is important to be aware of the differences.
