Tutoring  (Prep - year 8).

If your child is having learning difficulties at school, or is at risk of developing a  reading or math problem, beginning intervention early is key.  We have registered teachers who work with your child individually or in small groups to help build essential reading, writing and math skills.  We offer tutoring in Literacy and Numeracy.  Both are multisensory, intensive and evidence-based which means they have been researched and proven to work.

Before commencing tutoring, an intake assessment occurs for two reasons;  1) to identify each students needs and establish what needs to be taught and 2) to measure student growth over time using standardised tools.  Ongoing informal assessment is also built in to each lesson to monitor progress and see how students respond to intervention. 

 

About our Literacy Program: 

'Spell-Links to Reading & Writing'

SPELL-Links uniquely applies clinical and neurobiological brain research by using speech-to-print word study instruction that leverages the brain's biological organization and wiring for oral language. This gateway leads to reading, writing, and spelling success for all K-12 students.

Reading and writing success begins with word study – a structured, systematic way of learning, practicing, and applying knowledge of sounds, letters, and word meanings to read and spell. With word study all students, including those with learning disabilities such as dyslexia and dysgraphia, gain skills and confidence. SPELL-Links uniquely combines speech-to-print, multi-linguistic, and meta-linguistic word study methods, delivering structured literacy instruction to produce strong writers and fluent readers with deep comprehension and rich vocabularies.

In addition to Spell-Links, our teachers can target reading comprehension, reading fluency and written expression using evidence-based strategies.  This provides a holistic approach to literacy development. 

About our Mathematics Program:

'Math-U-See'

Math-U-See is designed to teach students specific skills that build as the student progresses. This systematic and cumulative approach uses a definite, logical sequence of concept instruction. The Math-U-See system is structured with step-by-step procedures for introducing, reviewing, practicing, and mastering concepts. Each lesson teaches using multi-sensory tools such as videos, manipulatives, and other resources, designed to appeal to any type of learner. Recommendations from independent researchers on best practice for maths instruction include all components that Math-U-See has used for the last 20 years to teach maths mastery to students of all ages and abilities.


Structured Literacy & Numeracy Programs (MSL based) 

Our qualified teachers provide effective tutoring to help children build essential literacy and numeracy skills.
