At Educate Tutoring, we draw on the theory of the Spalding method. Spalding has been proven to be successful because it integrates spelling, writing and reading through systematic and sequential teaching using explicit, interactive, diagnostic instruction. Through the use of a multisensory approach, the Spalding method aligns with the five literacy components consistent with the recommendations made by the National Inquiry in the Teaching of Reading: Phonemic Awareness, Systematic Phonics, Vocabulary, Fluency and Comprehension.
At Educate Tutoring, we believe in being child-centred, where the wellbeing of the child is first and foremost; having high expectations of our students; and continuous teacher improvement, so that we can be sure we are constantly updating and refining our teaching as new resources and research becomes available.
