Mentor InterActive today announces the release of My Virtual Tutor - Reading, an interactive game to improve children’s reading and comprehension skills.

Derived from a teaching system and proprietary software developed by faculty from the University of Colorado’s Center for Spoken Language Research, the software lets children practice reading skills on Nintendo DS through interactive books, fun reading and word exercises and quizzes that allow the child to earn a prize. The child holds the DS vertically like a book and is guided through the different game modes by an animated tutor that reads, repeats and provides encouraging words.

The program concentrates on five reading areas including phonemic awareness, phonics, comprehension, fluency, and vocabulary–all recommended by the Department of Education to improve reading proficiency.
