Reading and Spelling (All ages)
I hold a Post Graduate Degree in Education with specialisation in learning and teaching, currently completing a Master's Degree in the same discipline. I hold a certificate in Early Childhood Development and am also a certified Phonographix reading therapist with over 15 years of teaching experience.
I have worked with countless children and adults labelled dyslexic, only to discover poor teaching methods leading them to their demise. I teach music and EAL in an international school in Thailand and have taught in South Africa and Botswana.
I am a lifelong learner, on a journey to learn more about how we learn best and what impact I can have on my students.
Experience: 15 years
Learning to read can be a difficult task if the correct tools are not implemented. Yet it is the key to opening up a world of knowledge and information. You may be just starting to learn how to read or you may be someone who has always struggled to read, perhaps English is an adidtional language. It makes no difference where you are in the bigger picture of learning to read, I will help you in your journey.
Based on the basic English code, according to linguists, we start with sound first and then move on to symbol. The English language is thought to be most difficult but I will demonstrate to you, how simple it should be.
In order to best understand your needs, I will do an assessment to guage your reading proficiency and offer you the first lesson free of charge. Learning to read is fun and need not be an obstacle anymore.
