The Reading Fox is your easy to use, online reading tutor.
Our mission is to help struggling readers of all ages succeed by making reading practice and self-tutoring easier, affordable and more effective. The Reading Fox is a combination of well-known books, successful study methods and proven eye-focus helpers which makes it a very effective, yet easy to use, online reading tutor! The tutor can be adjusted to your desired practice level and moves at whatever pace you are comfortable with. This also makes it a great assistant in reading comprehension and dyslexia therapy.
To fit your desired practice level, our tutor offers a variety of adjustable settings and functions. Words, for example, can be displayed broken down into smaller parts (sound units) to help with pattern building. Other features such as the open dyslexic font and our contrast color backgrounds, help reduce the “jumbling of words” on the display. To help with eye-focus, words appear one by one, “building” the page on your screen. This shifts your eye-focus always to the last word on the screen, similar to how a reading-focus card works on printed text. The tutor’s different speed settings allow you to set a comfortable practice speed, or you can set it to manual speed mode, where you can take as much time as needed with a word before moving on to the next. If you get stuck on a word simply click on it to sound it out loud. This helps avoid frustration and keeps you moving along with your practice. After all, your reading success is our goal!
Based on the successful CD-Rom version, the Reading Fox is now all Online.
Our tutor is all online, so there is no download or installation of software necessary. Simply log on to our members area from your computer, tablet or smartphone to practice reading whenever you like and as long as you like. In the members area we also have instructions and a video tutorial to familiarize you with the tutor. Our tutor is very intuitive and easy to use, so you can start practicing immediately!
