Extraordinary Kids is an owner operated business on the North Shore of Auckland in Torbay, helping students with Reading, Writing, Spelling and Maths. I aim to provide individualised instruction to allow students to overcome learning blocks and achieve greater educational goals.The learning environment is highly structured and purposefully quiet with the aim of allowing a high level of absorption of material.
All Students Welcome
All students are welcome. Some students just need some clear teaching of skills that they may have missed in the classroom; others may be struggling to understand what is being taught at school.
My specialty area is dyslexia and maths learning difficulties. I use a 32 level phonics programme that colour codes the vowel sounds of the English language and over teach to ensure learning is retained. I pride myself on being a good explainer of maths and have hands on materials to help students understand maths though tangible experience.
I can assist kids who are behind in school or those needing extra encouragement to keep up. I can provide extra academic challenges or supervise projects for gifted students. There is a great deal of flexibility to create and provide the right programme for each student.
Academic monitoring is part of my goals for High School Students and I can help with study skills.I am happy to help kids who are learning English as a second language and may want help to increase their vocabulary and learn to write more correctly. Home-schooled children, students with Aspergers and children who have missed school due to health issues are welcome.
