From 3rd to 4th Grade

Is it really almost middle school?

As 4th grade begins their school year, your child also starts to build its foundation for their middle school years. Suddenly your 4th grader brings home a backpack (or computer) filled with textbooks. It is a not-so-subtle reminder your child is working his or her way towards middle school. Every lesson in 4th grade builds on the next, so helping your child close learning gaps, keep up or get ahead is a significant investment for the soon to be Middle School years.
Our team of expert grade 4 tutors has specific indicators kept in mind while tutoring your 4th grader to achieve this big transition year with the utmost ease.

Tutoring and Focus Subjects 4th Grade

Phonics and Reading

Our experienced reading tutors will begin with teaching phonics, necessary reading skills, vocabulary, and spelling.

Writing

Our experienced writing tutors understand the power of writing. They foster within their students the abilities to organize their thoughts and build the skills needed to write clear and concise descriptions, narratives, and informative sentences and paragraphs

Spelling and Vocabulary

Our experienced tutors focus on how words are spelled and pronounced and then focus on the meaning of the words by using them in context.

Number Sense

Our experienced tutors will develop their student's abilities to understand, relate, and connect numbers. With a healthy number sense, children can think flexibly and fluently about numbers.

Reading Comprehension

Our experienced tutors will develop reading comprehension skills in their students to understand and interpret what they have read, decode what they read, make connections between what they read and what they already know, and think deeply about what they have read.

Problem Solving

Our experienced tutors include problem-solving skills in sessions with their students. Problem-solving strategies can help with subjects like math, reading, writing, and help them develop excellent social skills. Problem-solving teaches kids to stop and think before they act.

Critical thinking:

Our experienced tutors seek out imaginative ways to include critical thinking skills by encouraging their students to ask questions, promote decision-making, encourage partner work in classroom discussions, and learn from others' different viewpoints.

Math

Our experienced tutors focus on two key areas to build a strong math foundation. First, we look to fill any gaps that need to be relearned. Second, we work to help your child learn and master new math concepts.

Testimonials

"Sarah Katrina is a unique and wonderful tutor. She is a natural with kids – they love her instantly and she is warm with them but she also is firm which helps them to trust her and to learn with her. I hired her to help my 6 year old son and I was so impressed by how sensitive she was not just to his learning deficits but also to him as a whole person. She used the information that she observed about his personality to help make their sessions fun and productive. Katrina is a gem! Highly, highly recommend her."

"Working with children is not something that anyone can do. To connect to a child, you need to have compassion for the child and be able to really speak their language. On top of that, you need to know how to balance kindness with firmness, to get kids on task and help them achieve. Sara Katrina possesses all of these qualities. While working in an elementary classroom for the first time, I sought Sarah Katrina out as a mentor because I saw her amazing abilities, and she helped me achieve better classroom results and better relationships with my students. If there is anyone who can help kids achieve their potential, it is Sarah Katrina!"

"Sarah Katrina tutored my 8-year-old son over the course of a few months during one summer as preparation for 4th grade. Every time he came back from their session, I felt that he had a good experience and that he felt accomplished and proud of himself. He told me that she was very helpful at explaining concepts because she gave individualized attention. He also said that she made it fun by splitting up the sessions with break times. Afterward, Sarah Katrina spent time with me going over how I can help my son and anything that I should look out for or support in his learning. I highly recommend Sarah Katrina. She has the patience and cares that all teachers should have plus the knowledge behind it to get the best out of the student she is teaching."
