Literacy & Numeracy Tutoring

I love the tutoring I’m doing. It started out with one student and now I have three! Their ages are 5, 9 and 11. It’s challenging to engage them and to give them work they can succeed at. Usually by the time parents engage a tutor the child has had quite a bit of time at school feeling like a failure so I try to give them tasks and games they can succeed at and still learn from.

I’m always scouring the Internet and shops for new resources. I often make my own though if I haven’t been able to find just what I need. It’s lots of fun 🙂

I’ve started recording my own audio books, I use the Hot Potatoes software to make quizzes, cloze, crosswords and match up exercises. The Learning Place from the Queensland Government has lots of free information which I’m using word lists etc.

    Just called across from Jillian's blog. Nice to meet you. what a pity you are in SA. I could really use a good tutor! My boys are 10 and 12 and both diagnosed with APD (Auditory Processing Delay) We homeschool, and the progress is slow but they are progressing.
    thanks for having me.

    Hi Ruby
    Yes what a shame I can't help out. There may be tutors in your area as well as other parents who've dealt with the same or similar issues. The Home Education Association may be able to put you in touch with someone too.

    Hope this helps, Kylie 🙂
