Debby Turner, Basic Literacy Tutor Coordinator

Please give a warm welcome to tutor Debby Turner, who has joined Anita Ewing as a Basic Literacy Tutor Coordinator! Debby, who has successfully tutored numerous students over the past several years, will provide ongoing support to our tutors and assist in tutor training.

Here are links to a number of YouTube videos dealing with improving reading comprehension that Debby found online when searching for materials for her current student, Julia. The Kaplan videos for the ACT were Julia’s initial favorites. She liked their clear and concise description of specific strategies to improve reading comprehension:

Strategies to Improve Reading Comprehension

How to Understand the Passage Despite the Science Jargon

There are also additional links to websites that had materials applicable to the reading comprehension part of the TABE test, including sample test questions and answers:
