Phonics Tuition

Is your child experiencing difficulties reading and writing?  


An explicit and targeted phonics programme may help to accelerate progress and develop a love of literacy.

Phonics is the study of the sounds that make up words and how to decode and blend these sounds to read and write. Explicit phonics teaching in addition to developing comprehension skills and vocabulary are essential components of becoming literate. 

My phonics programme involves: 

  • A free assessment to identify the learning required. 

  • Multi-sensory, small group instruction in phonics with students working at the same stage.

  • Useful tools to use in class to support reading and writing. 

  • Pupil tracking to ensure progress is being made.
