Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world – Nelson Mandela
We aim to have this program implemented by term 2. We are currently taking expressions of interest.
Our “I’m Still Learning” program is aimed towards kids who struggle at school and need that little bit of extra help, but whose parents are unable to afford to pay for tutoring. A child centred approach; reminding students of their strengths and building on what they already know and how they learn best.
Our Holistic Approach
Our tutors will be carefully chosen to ensure they have a holistic approach to learning, nurturing and building on the child’s strengths while inspiring and motivating a love of learning.
We believe in a holistic approach to learning and ensure relationship quality is at the centre of all we do. We value building a positive working relationship with our students and believe in the longevity and connection working with a student over many months and even years can provide. When children are inspired, excited and motivated to come to their session, more learning can take place. Sometimes, children simply need to be reminded of how much they already know and to honour and value their own way of thinking and learning. We have a passion for guiding and coaching children to reach their full potential. We aim to inspire and motivate children while instilling confidence and belief in themselves on their learning journey. As they realise their own growth and improvement in their literacy and mathematics skills they also discover their love of learning.
The Quality and Personalised Content
Our services will be designed to improve students’ literacy, life skills, self-esteem and self-confidence which contribute to improving learning outcomes and improved student achievements. Without support many students can become disengaged from school, usually resulting from behavioural and social skills problems or barriers they have developed towards learning.
By having qualified teachers, our tutors will ensure the work set is aligned with the National and State Curriculum and literacy and numeracy outcomes. Where necessary, we aim to fill gaps and reinforce challenging concepts resulting in increased confidence and improved achievement. Specific learning needs are also tailored for the individual child and for older children, their input into the learning journey is encouraged and valued, giving them a sense of agency in the learning process.
We envisage a world where every child is literacy aware with no child left behind.
Personalised sessions will be tailored specifically to your child’s needs. Short term and long term goals are set collaboratively, immediate feedback given, and the learning journey to be led by the child, ultimately increasing their confidence and abilities
The Feedback and Communication
Our tutors will understand the benefits and need for open communication to ensure your child’s learning journey is productive, valuable and fun. Regular reflections and evaluations will be provided and we will encourage your feedback and your child’s feedback to help tailor our approach to your child.
We believe it takes a village to raise a child so we aim to work collaboratively with you, your child’s teachers and any other professionals to ensure together we are meeting specific needs and helping to propel your children forward, all while reminding them of and focusing on their strengths and create a Learning Plan which works for your family and meets the requirements of the school curriculum
Most kids know how to read, but do they really get it? For many, the bridge from “Learning to Read” to “Reading to Learn” can be challenging. We soon realise it is much more than decoding the words on the page. If our children don’t have the strategies to make meaning from the text, then what’s the point? Often this is when we see lack of engagement and enjoyment as they just aren’t ‘getting’ what they’re reading. This begins to become more noticeable in later primary and high school years as content is more difficult making it even harder to make sense of new material
We aim to have the program up and running ready for term 2 of 2022.
In-Person and online Zoom sessions will be available. The bonus of being able to provide zoom sessions means that even during a lockdown, your child will still be able to be tutored.
Do you have a passion for guiding and coaching children to reach their full potential through inspiring and motivating them, helping them improve their literacy and mathematics skills, overall academic performance and love of learning?
We would love to hear from you.
