In How to Tutor: A Step-by-Step Guide to Teaching the 3 R's, renowned author and educator Samuel Blumenfeld demystifies primary education. You'll learn that you can teach subjects you already know without requiring specialized academic training or degrees, and that countless generations have proven that basic academics can be taught by any literate person.

You will be taught to teach as you follow these step-by-step programs:

  • READING: In 117 leassons, teach any student to read virtually any word in a comprehensive phonics program
  • HANDWRITING: In 73 lessons, train any student to develop the lost art of cursive handwriting
  • ARITHMETIC: In 67 lessons, enable any student to master the essental calculation skills, from simple addition to long division

These tried and true methods are so simple they can be used for all age levels - from primary children's education to adult literacy programs. As the teacher, you  will not only learn what you need to teach, but why these basic skills are essential and why they are fundamental to the success of the home educator, tutor, classroom or remedial teacher.

You can be the best teacher your students will ever have!

Samuel L. Blumenfeld

Samuel L. Blumenfeld (1927–2015), a former Chalcedon staffer, authored a number of books on education, including NEA: Trojan Horse in American Education,  How to Tutor, Alpha-Phonics: A Primer for Beginning Readers, and Homeschooling: A Parent’s Guide to Teaching Children

He spent much of his career investigating the decline in American literacy, the reasons for the high rate of learning disabilities in American children, the reasons behind the American educational establishment’s support for sex and drug education, and the school system's refusal to use either intensive phonics in reading instruction and memorization in mathematics instruction.  He lectured extensively in the U.S. and abroad and was internationally recognized as an expert in intensive, systematic phonics.  His writings appeared in such diverse publications as Home School DigestReasonEducation Digest, Boston Magazine, Vital Speeches of the DayPractical Homeschooling, Esquire, and many others.
