Making time for reading

Great for time-stretched teachers, Fluency Tutor for Google makes reading aloud more fun and satisfying for students who need some extra support. It’s a big help for struggling and reluctant readers, as well as students learning English as a second language.

Easy to use with a sleek new look, our software allows students to record themselves reading and then share that content with their teacher - away from the pressures of reading aloud in the classroom environment.

Ideal for schools using Google Apps for Education (GAFE), this friendly Chrome app integrates seamlessly with Google Drive and Classroom. And since it works with any online content, it's the perfect complement to other existing teacher approaches.

How it works

Pick any content, any time. Teachers can select any web page or browse a library of pre-selected reading passages based on content, lexile level or reading age. Students can also create their own passages from websites containing content they enjoy reading. Assigned passages can be edited as needed and then shared with individual students or groups via Google Drive or Classroom.

Students can rehearse and record their reading in a relaxed environment at school or at home, with extra help provided by a dictionary, picture dictionary and translation tools.

Teachers can listen to students’ recordings wherever and whenever it's convenient, giving quick feedback or a more in-depth assessment of reading progress. By collecting data over time, Fluency Tutor for Google helps teachers build a clear picture of each student's progress throughout the school year.
