Abacus Mom received this note today from our friend Irene Daria, who has helped some of our clients improve their reading skills.

For 15 years, Steps Tutoring has been offering private academic enrichment lessons in reading, math, grammar, writing, and test prep to children in the best public and private schools in New York City. Now, Steps has published its renown reading curriculum in a series of books called Steps to Reading that parents can use to teach their kids how to read at home.

“Reading is where all academic success begins,” says developmental psychologist Irene Daria, Ph.D, founder of Steps Tutoring. “Not all schools are strong at teaching phonics and, wanting to help as many kids as I can, I’ve published my reading curriculum in a series of fun and engaging books that anyone can use to teach a child to read.”

The books include:

  • Step-by-step instructions on how to teach:
    • Phonics
    • The most frequently used sight words
  • Fun and engaging worksheets
  • Vocabulary
  • Phonics Bingo and board games
  • Online activities
  • Guides to phonics stories the children can read. The stories reinforce each lesson and make children feel so proud of themselves!
