Reading, like writing, is a learned skill.  While natural talent can help, guided reading and instruction can
help students, teachers, or others learn techniques for more fully understanding what is read.  This more
complete comprehension can only serve to make your writing more cogent and focused...  while a trained
tutor can be quite helpful
, the acts of reading and writing will reinforce skills and increase comprehension.
