๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’™ WHO AM I?

I am a primary teacher reaching out to parents who wish to help their child be better prepared for school learning (and life). I've taught in classrooms, homes, online, and in the TV Industry, helping young Aussie kids to manage their schoolwork, improve their social interactions, and develop better study habits.

I welcome all levels of learners & provide strong reading and learning pathways that complement the learning efforts already being made at school while physically preparing students' brains for success with the 4Rs -- reading, writing, arithmetic and recall. It's this 4th 'R' of REMEMBERING that's frequently underdeveloped at school & yet it's so important.

While school achieves provides many lessons for our children, learning doesn't only happen as a product of teaching.

This routine allows children the time and space to think about problems (and answers) in a controlled, non-judgmental, and playful environment, and it's designed by leading brain scientists (check out Dr. Michael Merzenich!), with clever algorithms that measure your child's rate of learning so they are never out of their depth, and never left too unchallenged.

Some of the areas covered: phonological awareness, phoneme discrimination, reading, writing, spelling, comprehension, maths, and the 4 key cognitive skills vital to learning success - memory, attention, processing, and sequencing. I'd love to help brighten your child's world. New and exciting opportunities await!

๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’™ HOW DOES IT WORK?

In between our monthly teacher call, students work on their own daily, neuroscientific learning account, called Fast ForWord.

Fast ForWord is a clinical-strength, teacher-monitored reading, language and cognitive-skill program developed by brain experts & delivered in a fun, animated format so kids feel right at home!

Itโ€™s easy to complete wherever you have Wi-Fi - in as little as 30 minutes a day, 5 days per week (or at least 3 days on your busiest weeks).

Your child will develop a routine that will not only help with language and reading, it will also help to get the brain learning FASTER so school becomes easier and life becomes happier.

I work with all learners (ages 4ยฝ+) including those looking for accelerated learning; home-based language therapy; or home-based interventions for: reading difficulties, auditory processing disorder, dyslexia, speech or language impairment, autism spectrum disorders, ADD, ADHD, a specific learning disability, home-schooling, and/or English Language Learners.

I'm a Primary Teacher.

I've been teaching and tutoring Primary Level Literacy and Numeracy for over 10 years, working in schools, private homes and with young actors in the television industry.

I'm also a fully-trained, Accredited Provider of Fast ForWord throughout Australia. Over the past several years, I've worked with hundreds of students (of all ages), customising and supporting their brain-based learning journeys.

๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’™

Struggling readers need 10x-30x more practice than peers to catch up โ€” but this is difficult through traditional means like after-school tutoring.

The special patents, computerisation & digital enhancing of the language and reading activities in Fast ForWord allow learners to exercise both the frontal lobes and the 'map' parts of the brain at the same time...

This means learners can build speedy fibre-tracts that connect one side of the brain to the other... and build processing maps... and build language skills all at once!

WHAT WILL WE BE WORKING ON?

๐Ÿš€ Language, Literacy & Reading Skills:
Phonemic Awareness, Phonics & Decoding, Spelling, High Frequency Words, Difficult Words (e.g. Homophones), English Language Conventions, Grammar, Reading Fluency, Vocabulary and Comprehension.

๐Ÿš€ Brain-Based Cognitive Skills:
Attention, Memory, Processing & Sequencing, Balance & Coordination

๐Ÿš€ Life Skills:
Improved Academics, Enhanced Self-Confidence, Better Communication, Better Ability to Follow Directions, Greater Interest in Learning, Stronger Mental Agility, Greater Alertness (a benefit to maths, sport, science & all other areas of the curriculum).

๐Ÿš€ Foundational Auditory Processing
Auditory processing disorder symptoms include difficulty following directions, inattentiveness, and learning or reading difficulties. There are several kinds of auditory processing issues. The symptoms can range from mild to severe. Children with APD can have weaknesses in one, some or all of these areas:

๐Ÿ‘‰ Auditory discrimination: The ability to notice, compare and distinguish between distinct and separate sounds. The words sixty and sixteen may sound alike, for instance.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Auditory figure-ground discrimination: The ability to pick out necessary and relevant sounds from extraneous background noises. Are you able to hear the person chatting next to you among a noisy group or if the kettle is boiling?

๐Ÿ‘‰ Auditory memory: The ability to recall what you've heard, either immediately or when you need it later.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Auditory sequencing: The ability to understand and recall the order of sounds and words. A child might say or write, "hostipal" instead of "hospital", or hear the number 356 but write 365.
