I am the owner and founder of WORDSENSE. I have an outgoing personality, good inter-personal skills and love the interaction of teaching. My life’s motto is: “Perseverance, Patience and Diligence”.

I believe that it is important to strive for excellence and to always do your best. I am an experienced teacher with 22 years in the trenches. I hold a BEd (Hons) – Specialising in Language and Literacy from the University of Cape Town and an HDE IV (Higher Diploma in Education) from Hewat College of Education.

I am also a Japanese abacus (Soroban) instructor as I believe that the development of strong mental maths is vitally important. This method can be applied to school maths to enhance the child’s mathematical skills in a multitude of ways.

I am a qualified Feuerstein Instrumental Enrichment Practitioner and accelerate cognitive functions by developing ‘Out of the Box’ thinking skills.

Literacy Development

Is your child struggling at school? We will strengthen his or her reading, spelling and comprehension skills by establishing a strong foundation in:

  • Phonemic Awareness – Back to Basics
  • Decoding Tools
  • Comprehension Tools
  • Vocabulary

By doing this, your child should be able to read more fluently, understand the meaning of what he/she reads, and therefore cultivate a positive approach to learning.

This is a proven method that has been developed over 80 years. English and Afrikaans are offered.

Mathematical Development

We build a strong mathematical foundation by going back to basics. We equip the learner with the necessary knowledge and skills by using interactive and fun educational games and proven teaching methods. We continuously stretch the learners’ abilities through challenging activities.

Personal Development

In order to strengthen their literacy and mathematical skills, we believe in developing the learner holistically so that they become responsible for their learning.

Instrumental Enrichment

This is a cognitive intervention programme that teaches key thinking processes to participants. It enables children to problem solve, organise, plan, self-regulate and explore different points of view, which they can use in many learning and social contexts. We believe in empowering children to awaken a life – long love for learning.

Free Baseline Assessment

A baseline assessment will provide insight as to where support is needed so that your child’s strengths can be enhanced, and their challenges addressed.
