Welcome to the Reading and Writing Tutor

Today, reading and writing skills are as important as ever.

The Inspiration

I provide a tutoring service for students, to support them in developing their reading and writing skills. I provide an individualised, comprehensive, and structured tutoring program that utilises evidence-based practices, including synthetic phonics.

I am inspired by the success of students, particularly students that have had to work hard to achieve success.

My goal is to support each student to develop their literacy skills across the areas of spelling, reading and creative writing. Student confidence and academic achievement is linked to their individual literacy skills and success in learning builds a positive attitude and resilience skills. It is a joy to watch a student grow in their confidence and skills.

The Programme

In English, understanding the sounds of our language and the spelling patterns we use underpins reading and writing success. Reading success in turn provides a model for writing.

I provide individualised programs for learners of varied abilities, ranging in age from the pre-school years through to adulthood. All lessons include a spelling component, a creative writing component, vocabulary development and reading development; this is to comprehensively develop student literacy skills.

Lessons are delivered at the Erina centre in a one-to-one private lesson or through Zoom if required. Parents are encouraged to remain at the centre and are welcome to participate in their child’s lesson.

Should you wish to contact me to discuss your child’s learning, please call
