My 9 year old Grace and I worked through 2 terms with Cracking the ABC code to support Graces spelling, vocabulary and comprehension development. This program's effectiveness is due to the carefully planned tasks that ensure a student doesn't just learn the spelling of a word but integrates this into their vocabulary and in doing so also develops an awareness of the rules of the English language using a range of multisensory approaches. The program also requires intensity and a sensitivity to the child's confidence and motivation levels and we received all this and more from Jen.
We hope to do another burst of the ABC code in 2015. Thanks Lil for such a wonderful literacy support package!!
Jennifer McAullay has been tutoring my son for the past 3 and a half years and in that time his reading and comprehension skills have greatly improved. Samuel has said that the skills he has learned about sounding out words has helped him in the classroom. Jen has been marvellous with Samuel and I am eternally greatful for the patience and encouragement she has shown him.
I highly recommend Jennifer McAullay as a tutor for the Cracking the ABC Code Program.
Understanding & Caring: That is what Jennifer McAullay is. My son Stefan had been seeing her for roughly 3yrs. Stefan found school work a real challenge. Stefan's confidence has grown so much after sending him to Jen. His confidence in class has grown. Just the other day in class the teacher was teaching the class about syllabifications and no one put there hand up but Stefan remembered what Jen had taught him so he proudly put his hand up and answered the teacher. Stefan came home from school that day so proud and confident that he knew what the teacher was talking about and that was with thanks to the beautiful Jen. He proudly said to me "Mum I remembered what Jen taught me and I got it right" . We had sent Stefan to other tutoring places but I can say with 100% satisfaction that Jen was the only person that was able to help our son gain confidence within the class room environment. I would definitely highly recommend Jen for your child.
Thankyou Jen for the way you approached spelling and compehension with Dylan. The 12 week program certainly gave him the boost he needed to gain confidence in his spelling. Most of all your patience and encouragement assisted with getting through the book each week and I was very proud that he took such a positive attitude towards getting it done. As this was now my second experience with cracking the ABC code as my eldest also participated and showed a great deal of maturity towards his work as he entered high school. Lastly and I think very importantly the school teachers were also very impressed as to just how thorough the program was and what was covered each week. As we know teachers have so much to cover in the classroom that there is no time for the 1 to 1 dedication which is where this progam is of such value. Thankyou Jen from both Joshua and Dylan.
Jen, you do an amazing job and you've helped us to change Phoebe's education pathway to be a much smoother road. We see that she feels more confident in her school work and she now has a solid foundation she can build on. Plus, she knows what she can achieve for HERSELF with hard work.
Thank you for all your hard work, support and encouragement. We certainly made the BEST choice to ‘catch’ Phoebe up in the shortest time by working with you.
You are an excellent teacher and your ability to help parents teach the program to their children is a testament to your skills. Yes, there were times of struggle for us to get the work done but you just kept being wonderful each week and it inspired me to persevere.
A huge thanks and we look forward to keeping in touch and ‘checking in’ over the coming year.
Our 10 year old son has struggled with learning for a number of years and after trying all different kinds of learning programs (some very expensive) and tutoring assistance we found Jennifer McAullay and Cracking the Code. Our son has gone from a child who would wake up in the morning and not want to go to school because he was struggling to a child who now asks me to buy him books! Jennifer is a fantastic teacher who offers a calm and relaxing environment for her sessions - it is not always easy working with a 10 year boy who has resisted the program at times but Jennifer does this with positive encouragement and praise - we are extremely happy with the support that she provides to our son and family - we highly recommend the program and Jennifer and look forward to continuing fabulous results in our son's reading and spelling which we have seen to date.
Jen was absolutely fabulous with my son. His reading and spelling has improved considerably and he is now more engaged in the classroom because of the content of this program. Jen has taught my son the foundations of literacy and what she has taught him has stuck. Jen showed my son so much compassion and patience and I'm so grateful. Due to logistics we have changed teachers but we will stick with cracking the code because the results are lasting. My son was devastated to leave his favourite teacher Jen, we will miss her. Outstanding teacher and really thorough program.
