My Virtual Tutor Transforms the Nintendo DS in to a Fun Learning System

When it comes to educational games for Nintendo DS, there aren’t all that many. But My Virtual Tutor Reader changes that. This new title is an interactive game that improves children’s reading and comprehension skills. The game features interactive books, fun reading and word exercises and quizzes that allow the child to earn a prize. When playing the game, the DS is held vertically like a book as a child is guided through the different game modes by an animated tutor that reads, repeats and provides encouraging words.  My Virtual Tutor – Reading concentrates on five reading areas including Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Comprehension, Fluency, and Vocabulary. The game retails for $29.99 and will be available in different packages (Pre-K to kindergarten, kindergarten to first grade, and first grade to second grade).
