Tips to Pass Along to Your Child

  • Amira is a reading tutor listening to your reading.
  • Amira will give you tips as you read words you know, words you don’t know, or words you skip. 
  • Make sure to think about what you're reading because Amira may ask questions about the story at the end. Each story can take 3-10 minutes depending on your level.
  • Amira will change the stories you can read based on how you do each day.  You can re-read stories to improve your score, too.
