๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’™ WHO AM I?
I've taught in schools, homes and the TV Industry helping our young Aussie actors to manage their schoolwork and scripts. I believe memory is a big key to success & research shows when learning feels more magical, it's naturally more memorable (and more master-able)! 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.
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!

In between our student/teacher calls &/or parent/teacher calls, all of my students are set-up with their own daily, neuroscientific learning account โ€“ itโ€™s 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 adapt and 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 4+) 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 brainbased learning journeys.


Struggling readers need 10x-30x more practice than peers to catch up โ€” but this is difficult through traditional means like after-school tutoring. From the comfort of your home, you can see results using educative technology expertly supported by your own educative human (me!). Your child can experience evidence-based brain-training that includes a NEUROSCIENTIFIC-TRIPLE-WHAMMY โ€” language, processing and cognitive skill development ALL-IN-ONE โ€” each learner will receive individualised, intensive practice on the skills that he or she needs most. By keeping things manageable, scientifically-measured (and therefore more targeted), you can avoid homework nightmares and enjoy seeing results sooner. There is something for every learner -- kids through to adults. If you have a struggling learner and you're looking for a home routine that can make a difference (rather than simply trying to reinforce what is already being taught at school and expecting a different result), I'd be thrilled to have you and/or your child aboard! We'll take a top-down approach that works the brain-body connection and brings a new ZING to learning by preparing the brain to process faster & remember more.



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.

"My grade 1 daughter struggled with reading and sounding her words out. After someone suggested we try Fast Forward with Coach Caro ... River has improved immensely with reading and writing and her school teacher has even suggested to other students to give it a try !!"
