Reading support skills

Everyone knows that reading can be quite daunting when it is not enjoyed or if it does not come naturally. It might be even more challenging if that reading needs to be out loud and if we feel insecure about it, and it might lead to one not attempting it in the first instance.

VoiceWorX’s practitioners know it happens to both children and adults and that reading skills get a knock when we are nervous or when we cannot fully understand (comprehend) what we read. 

  • Are you, or anyone you know, having difficulty with reading and comprehension?
  • Are you a new parent or a teacher who realises that reading to children does not come naturally, just yet? 


By boosting your child’s reading and comprehension skills beyond learning expectations for Key Stages 1 and 2, they will be better prepared for the inevitable fast pace that Key Stages 3 and 4 will bring.

In Secondary Education, under-developed reading and under-developed comprehension might manifest bigger issues when puberty sets in, just when the change in hormones plays havoc with your child’s confidence.  Presentation skills become part of the curriculum and those already lacking in confidence and who also feel awkward and self-conscious, find it difficult to stand in front of their peers presenting projects and homework, often resulting in panic, tears, stage fright and possible non-participation.

Tuition is offered 1:1 and/or in small groups. 

1:1 tuition

In a confidential and relaxed environment sessions will be tailored to suit the individuals’ needs.  Coaching needs to be a practical, sensitive and positive experience so that the individual’s potential is realised.

Small groups

Everyone needs presentation skills, don’t they?  The earlier these skills are developed, the more confidence a person has.  There are many occasions when children must present themselves in school: assemblies, plays, and classroom activities. By tutoring in small reading groups children will develop social learning with their peers, be able to hold their own in a debate, be able to present themselves with confidence, vocally and physically. These skills, in turn, will stand them in good stead for Secondary and Tertiary Education and, ultimately, a career.


Enhance your sight-reading and presentation skills in a confidential and relaxed atmosphere. Together we will hone the skills you already have by ensuring posture, breath, articulation and resonance work together to support you and your voice. Once empowered with confidence your newly found voice will display a range of colour, tone, dynamics and pitch. Not only will these skills augment your personal repertoire but also the boost to your inner confidence will outwardly project to those around you.
