LTK for Tutors
The Language Tune-up Kit (LTK) is the perfect tool for tutors looking to help students increase their reading abilities. Students can easily search for tutors in the LTK application, so you can use the LTK platform to boost your base of students. Tutoring in the LTK system is also new and effective, allowing you to expertly guide your students with the help of AI and with detailed reports on your students progress.
How the LTK Works
The LTK in an online program that works because it is based on the scientifically proven Orton-Gillingham method of utilizing a multisensory curriculum with a positive feedback mechanism. It is very effective with many students, as well as with children having learning disabilities (LD), including dyslexia and ADHD (Tier-2 and Tier-3). The LTK adjusts to each student’s abilities automatically and there are further adjustments that can be made. Tutors can monitor/review progress on their own using a dashboard. The LTK’s multisensory approach reinforces learning by having students code words in multiple modalities, such as tracing over letters as they hear words audibly spoken. The LTK also includes a card-deck to teach phonemic awareness, letters, and sound recognition. The lessons are also full of games and activities to teach phonics and give instructions for beginning readers.
There is an abundance of research in cognitive science, education, and neuroscience that helps us better understand how the brain works and the acquisition of reading skills. However, reading impairments and learning difficulties continue to exist. Some of the major factors contributing to reading difficulties is lack of early reading remediation and how reading is actually taught in schools. Educational practices often do no not apply the latest research and teachers are often finding themselves unprepared to teach each student according to their unique needs. Many student difficulties are overlooked and not diagnosed properly at an early age when remediation is essential and can truly make a difference. This is when additional resources and training are essential. The LTK offers an opportunity to increase literacy levels, to teach students about reading and language rules, to improve phonemic awareness, and develop language decoding skills. It’s not just learning to read, but also reading to learn. The LTK shapes a student’s learning pathways!

“Our LTK programs are bailing students out of difficult situations every day. We’ve had about 5 or 6 of our elementary school students receive “Most Improved Student” awards in the last year. That translates to about 20% of our enrollees. Two of those are now on the honor roll with A’s and B’s in courses they previously had difficulty getting passing test scores on…and they were also up for ADD evaluation.”

Thanks again for developing such a program. I hope we have success!”
