Tutoring Help For High School Critical Reading
Students in high school spend the majority of their days in content-area classes, all of which require that they efficiently extract information from their texts and interpret what the author has explicitly or implicitly stated. These added demands may have your teen struggling to keep up. Strong reading skills are crucial as your teen faces higher-level classes, more difficult literary and scientific texts, and a heavier workload. Their ability to rapidly comprehend what they are reading will help them during study time, as well as when they take important standardized exams, such as the ACT and SAT. Plus, strong reading skills will give your teen a leg-up in the workplace as they graduate college and start a career.
The reading skills that high school students need to use in their day-to-day activities are based in the foundational skills learned in elementary and middle school. These include the ability to read a wide variety of materials with ease, for varying purposes, and with comprehension. If your teen lacks these and other important skills, or if your teen lacks strong foundational reading skills, our tutors can help.

"My experience at Huntington Learning Center has dramatically changed my life. Huntington has helped me in all aspects of life, especially in school. I am now a much faster reader, and I am able to conquer the SAT. I honestly don’t know what I would do without Huntington. At first I was very close minded and my parents forced me to come here, but I’m glad they did. I strongly recommend Huntington because your grades will rise, and you will see the difference."

How Do I Know if My Child Needs Help?
Most of the time it will be obvious when your child needs help. Often, you can see when they are struggling. You’ll see warning signs, such as low grades, poor test and quiz grades, struggles with homework, avoiding homework, changes in attitude or behavior, or becoming disorganized or quiet and withdrawn.
Your child’s teacher may also notice issues and tell you that your child is a day dreamer, a class clown, or is acting out. The teacher may be concerned about your child's ability to succeed, or that important school skills are missing.
