Reviews - What do customers think about How to Tutor?

How to Tutor/Alpha Phonics  May 12, 2007
I have used both the Math and Reading sections of this book with great success. This is my second copy.
A Great Resource!  Oct 26, 2006
I've used this book with my homeschooling children and it is super easy, not time consuming at all and superior to all other programs we've tried! I would highly suggest it to anyone teaching their own or tutoring other children, especially those on a budget.
A Word from the Author  Aug 22, 2001
The original edition of Alpha-Phonics is now once more in print and is available at this However, How to Tutor teaches more than just reading. It teaches the three Rs: Reading, 'Riting, and 'Rithmetic. I wrote it to enable parents with little money to be able to teach their children the basic primary subjects at home. It's simple and easy to use. Because I have been critical of the way public schools teach children the basics, I decided to provide parents with a way to do the job properly at home so that they could be sure that their children learned the basics before going to school. I also recommend that you consider homeschooling. My book, Homeschooling: A Parents Guide to Teaching Children is a comprehensive introduction to the wonderful and exciting world of homeschooling. Read it. You'll be glad you did.
Best book available for teaching reading & writing together.  Aug 19, 1999
I have used this book recently in a summer tutoring program. The children I worked with needed remedial help and did quite well with the simple lessons. Previously, I had used it to tutor children who were behind for their age group. I recommend it for families on a very low budget who are planning to home school. It's like Ragu. It's all in there and you don't need much else other than your Bible.
The best and least expensive phonics program known to man  Jun 21, 1999
I used Alphaphonics to teach my children how to read when they were 4 and 5 years old. It was thorough, VERY easy to use, and worth every penny (and there weren't very many of them needed!). "How to Tutor" is indeed the same thing-different format-and every bit as excellent. I used Mr. Blumenfeld's ideas on teaching cursive )included in this book. I strongly recommend to anyone, buy "How to Tutor" and save your money for those reading books for your children, when before you know it, they'll be reading them, thanks to Mr. Blumenfeld's book. It really IS all that's needed. For all of you who are insecure about teaching your child to read, use this and be encouraged, your child is teachable, especially by you. Just take the lessons in this book and write them on a chalkboard and discuss it with your student (great, by the way, for teaching those of any age who never really learned to read properly) Have you gotten the idea that I REALLY like this book? Don't let the price fool you, you CAN get great stuff cheap.
