You can teach your child to succeed beyond anyone’s expectations!

A mother working with her child – making a difference.

I have been a student, teacher, and parent for most of my life have worked at Primary, Secondary and Tertiary level. My experiences have taught me that children will improve their reading, writing and math skills beyond theirs and anyone else’s expectations, when they are in an environment which:

  1. believes in them,
  2. supports them to aim high, and
  3. gives them the tools to reach their goals.

My five key beliefs

  1. Every child has untapped intelligence they may not be aware of.
  2. All children hunger to learn and develop.
  3. If you treat a child as a highly intelligent person, they will believe you over time, and  will act accordingly.
  4. Effort (yours and theirs) makes an important difference in how successful a child is.
  5. Children need effective strategies that help them learn new information and skills more easily.

I help families and their children develop the skills to work together so the children become excellent readers, writers and mathematicians. I believe that if you coach your child for 20 minutes a day on skills they need, you change their life forever.

I wish you lots of fun and success with your child.

      Thanks for that encouragement Fred. In the end love is actually all there is. I also love my job! It’s such fun getting to know and enjoy others, and working to enable them to achieve in the areas they want to achieve in.
