At ACE we believe all students have the ability to become successful learners. Beginning with an evidence-based education assessment we connect with and support our learners to meet their educational challenges.
ACE Education is based upon:
• Explicit, Direct & Cumulative Teaching
• The Orton -Gillingham Approach • Lucid Recall/ Working Memory Assessment
• Multi-Sensory Structured Language • Individualised Learning Plans and Reports Education
In mid 2016 I trained in Multi Structured Language Education in Melbourne. This extended my learning & thinking around the importance of phonological awareness and its significant role in helping children to improve their literacy skills. Over the next 3 years, I worked privately, using Structured Literacy to teach over 80 students 1-1 ( and in small groups) with literacy challenges.
Previous to this, I worked for 16 years as a primary school teacher in N.Z . Over this time, there were many occasions where I knew of students in different classrooms, who required a lot of extra support with reading, writing & spelling. However, there never seemed to be enough hours or resources to give them all the help needed. Hence, my long term goal to eventually work 1-1 with these kind of learners.
Fast forward to today, where I have been excited to set up ACE Education with my South Island business partner. It has been hugely rewarding seeing the growth in each student's confidence as they work in
1 to 1 sessions, having the space to focus, practice and build on their literacy skills at their own pace.
On a personal note, my home is a dairy farm on the outskirts of Cambridge where I live with Dave and my 3 teenagers. In my spare time, I am usually cycling, heading off to boot camp or yoga classes with friends, adventure racing or on the sideline of a local sports field, supporting my kids with their weekend sporting activities.
So please get in touch, even if you have a simple query.
I look forward to connecting with you and your child sometime in the near future.
