Catching Up Education provides effective literacy instruction grounded in evidence-based practices to help struggling readers from kindergarten to high school become confident readers in a short span of time. If your child reads slowly, laboriously, is uncertain about sight words, reads word-by-word, ignores punctuation, makes many errors, has poor comprehension and spelling then Catching Up Education is for you. Following an initial assessment, I will find what skills students have and help fill in the gaps in their knowledge with direct and explicit tutoring of these skills. Areas of focus include phonological awareness, reading including systematic phonics instruction, reading fluency, spelling and comprehension. Students will be motivated in the program to follow a series of strategies including instruction and modelling, repeated reading and progress monitoring. These strategies are designed to maximise the time a student spends reviewing letter names and sounds, learning phonics patterns, and using this knowledge to decode single to multisyllable words. During learning sessions students of all ages will read interesting fiction and non fiction texts, make predictions, answer questions and retell the story to improve comprehension.
My name is Farah, I am a mother of three, and I am passionate about teaching students how to read. I have a Masters in Special Education and a Masters in Primary teaching. My nurturing approach to teaching and expertise will help your child to reach their potential. I have many years of experience working at the Exodus Foundation with industry experts delivering specialised reading.

At Catching Up Education, I believe all children can be taught to read, comprehend and spell to their potential.
