Start school with confidence
The 'Little Learners Love Literacy' program developed by Maureen Pollard teaches early literacy skills with a focus on phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency and comprehension. The children are engaged in fun and interesting activities, through their participation in the program and its approach to introducing letters and sounds through the story ‘Milos Birthday Surprise’ . This program is based on the belief thatall children can love literacy. According to Maureen Pollard, children just need the right tools, teaching and support to feel successful. Maureen Pollard, an experienced educator has devoted her career to improving literacy outcomes for all students. Please see Shining Stars Tutoring Centre facebook page, for a recent review of this program by a parent who enrolled his child in this program.
Leave Struggle Behind. Shine with confidence
The 'Cracking The ABC Code' program is based on well researched phonic and phonemic knowledge as well as orthographic and memory research. The child's reading accuracy and comprehension ability are assessed as well as spelling and phonic knowledge prior to the commencement of the program so that the program is tailored to their specific needs. This program is delivered weekly on an individual basis. Parents are invited to be present during the tuition so that they are familiar with the strategies and skills taught during the lesson. Your child will receive a work book, a folder of individualised activities and a plastic satchel to carry the items. Anne also offers the 'Learnersaurus ' Literacy program developed by Leslie Keast- Patch, a specialist in dyslexia and literacy. This program is an explicit, cumulative, multisensory program suitable for all learners from 7 years of age. According to Leslie, after 10 weeks on this program, when followed as instructed, you will see your learner's confidence grow and watch them enjoy success as they begin to develop their literacy skills.
Anne has recently successfully completed the Sounds-Write practitioner's course which means that the Sounds-Write program can also be offered to students who either need to learn how to read or who need an effective intervention program to teach them to read and spell. Sounds-Write is a structured, multisensory, incremental, instructional, phonics teaching programme .
Anne is also able to support students who need extra tutoring with primary mathematics and creative writing. This centre uses the Australian version of the 'Maths-U -See' program.
