The Benefits of Savvy Learning
Early engagement at the right level leads to small wins. Consistent small successes lead to more confidence. Confidence in education leads to curiosity and a desire to keep learning.
If a learner needs more time on a set of learning objectives or would be better served by moving ahead, Savvy’s Learner Success team works with the coach, parent, and learner to determine the right level so the learner can thrive.
Savvy’s program is centered on engaging interactions with delightful coaches because people — especially kids — are social by nature. Classes are 25 minutes, 4 days a week, which we’ve found to be just right — not too short or long. The consistency of meeting daily is key to making real progress.
Group classes are limited to 4 learners to ensure our coaches can cater to each learner daily. They are also grouped by specific learning level and time availability.
1:1 classes allow coaches to cater entirely to the needs of one learner. They are easy to schedule and are often chosen when a learner is accelerated, struggling, or needs extra help and attention to stay engaged due to a learning difference.
There’s no skill more foundational to learning than reading, yet not all children learn to read quickly and automatically. It can be frustrating and overwhelming. They may lose confidence and become resistant to reading. That’s where we come in.
When we can meet them at their level, learning to read is a delightful, engaging experience that builds confidence and turns into a virtuous cycle.
Delightful engagement at the right level — not too hard, not too easy — leads to small wins. Consistent small successes lead to more confidence. Confidence leads to curiosity and leveling up in learning. And the results are what we live for.
A large number of Savvy Readers are advanced for their age. They grow when they’re engaged one-on-one or in small groups with materials and discussions that cause them to think critically. This approach expands development at their own pace.
Keep them challenged and engaged.
When you have a gifted reader on your hands, there can be a few obstacles:
Meeting readers at the right level of challenge for their capabilities is the answer.
Savvy Reading classes help children nurture their love of learning and unlock their full potential. Children will succeed quicker when they are using topics of their individual interests. Our reading coaches asses and use your child’s interests and strengths to help build their reading comprehension.
By giving your learner the skill set and the confidence to progress on their own, you will see them light up with the love of reading.
Our experienced coaches work to foster a love of reading in our students and design our curriculum to be as enjoyable as it is effective — so kids stay engaged and want to do it.
Multisensory elements are also included to engage multiple pathways to the brain, encouraging a better understanding and higher retention of the material. Lessons are written for direct, explicit instruction but also created for increased engagement and interest for the readers.
Not all children learn to read quickly and automatically. Savvy reading is excellent for readers with dyslexia and other reading challenges. It’s built on explicit and systematic instruction and draws from the gold standard Orton-Gillingham approach.
Savvy’s program incorporates many elements of the Orton-Gillingham methodology, focusing on the sounds and matching letters that makeup words, which allows struggling readers to begin to feel confident in reading.
The phonics scope and sequence build off base skills and gradually move on to more challenging concepts. They focus on the word level and the connection between letters and their sounds. Readers with dyslexia will benefit from the ongoing spiral review, regularly reviewing concepts and building on skills.
