Teaching your son or daughter to use English competently might very well be the key to their success at school in Mississippi, at exams, in their career & beyond.

Imagine your son or daughter several months or years in the future … in Rankin or elsewhere …

Is your child a smart child because he or she became an early reader, acquired a passion for knowledge, obtained early language and literacy skills & developed an air of confidence that will last them a lifetime?

Or is your child struggling to read, underperforming at school and set-up for a lifetime of frustration and failure?

Of course everyone wants to be the proud parent of a happy & confident son or daughter, and every parent can.

But, in order to guarantee a bright future for your son or daughter in Mississippi, it’s often necessary to take your child’s education into your own hands.

If you want your son or daughter to grow up to be smart and successful, then you need to underst& how crucial it is that you teach your son or daughter when his or her brain expansion is at its apex.

The cerebral cortex in your child’s brain is responsible for his or her sight, hearing, and smell. It also controls his or her speech, thinking, and memory. In fact, the cerebral cortex is what makes them – them! At birth, the cells in your child’s cerebral cortex were poorly connected (they are for everyone). However, by 2 to 3 years old, the cerebral cortex contains 100 trillion connections. & that number remains high until the eighth birthday when it starts to gradually decline and level off to adult levels (*Ref). It’s ​very important to take the opportunity to teach children during this time when brain development is peaking.

Teaching English to your son or daughter might be the key, not only to their success in school in Rankin, but also their sense of self-worth, both in Mississippi and beyond.

  • Early & advanced English skills will make your son or daughter smarter.
  • Early & advanced English skills will improve problem solving.
  • Early & advanced English skills will improve planning, and abstract thinking skills.
  • Early & advanced English skills will help develop complex idea comprehension.
  • Early reading can help children compensate for modest levels of ability in other areas. (*Ref)

ON A PRACTICAL LEVEL, HOW IMPORTANT IS EARLY READING?

  • Your child’s reading ability and vocabulary at 3 years old might predict his or her success in school in Rankin when they are 6 to 7 years old (*Ref).
  • Your son or daughter’s reading ability at 6 to 7 years old might predict his or her success at 17 to 18 years old (*Ref)!
  • Your child’s reading ability at 7 to 8 years old might determine their graduation from senior school in Rankin (*Ref).


ON THE OTHER HAND:

  • Children who can’t read fluently by 7 to 8 years old are four times more likely to leave school without a diploma/results than proficient readers (*Ref).

and:

  • Children who are not taught Phonemic Awareness, & therefore have to rely on memory have difficulty beginning to read & continue to have difficulty with new words.


BUT, SURELY SCHOOL WILL TEACH MY CHILD TO READ? SO, WHY DO I NEED TO BOTHER?

If this is what you are thinking, then you should know that you cannot rely on schools, including those in Rankin …

  • In the USA, almost 70% of children at school who are aged 9-10 years old cannot read proficiently (*Ref)!
  • And, of those children, 33% of them read at only a very basic level, & 34% are reading at a very unsatisfactory level (*Ref).
  • It’s not much different in the UK, where over 100,000 children leave school illiterate(*Ref).
  • Or in Australia, where 33% of students aged 11 years old fail to meet literacy benchmarks (*Ref).
  • Or in Canada, where 42% of the entire adult population is only semi-illiterate (*Ref).

 

NO, YOU CANNOT RELY ON SCHOOLS.

But, why not?

  • Teachers don’t always appreciate the basic building blocks of language and reading
  • Teachers all too frequently don’t know how to teach English language concepts
  • There just aren’t enough qualified teachers
  • Classes are too over-crowded
  • Kids don’t get enough one-on-one attention from teachers in the classroom
  • Schools aren’t using the correct teaching systems – i.e they rely on rote learning or sight words
  • Schools are overwhelmed and have tried to shift some of the burden of teaching onto apps and computers

 

UNFORTUNATELY, IT IS A FACT THAT:

Being illiterate is a guaranteed ticket to a dead end.

YOU NEED TO TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR CHILD’S EDUCATION – TODAY!

BUT HOW?

You can begin by teaching English to your son or daughter.

By Teaching your son or daughter to read your son or daughter will develop early reading skills that will help put them years ahead of other children in Mississippi. So, if you’ve decided that you want to become a proud parent of a happy & smart child, then you owe it to your child to teach them to read and improve their English.

What Method Do You Use?

  • We teach using a Step-by-Step method. The content of each lesson is determined by an 8-page workbook that’s slightly more challenging than the last in the sequence. Lessons ‘scaffold’ and build upon the learning of the previous lesson. As a result, students advance in small, manageable steps and acquire English language skills that enable them to achieve better results in school, exams & beyond..
  • Sequenced instruction is organised into 5 developmentally appropriate stages, 15 levels of increasing difficulty and 600 lessons. Each lesson provides one hour of learning per week and follows a workbook that consists of six worksheets with instructional content and one reinforcement exercise page.:
  • Each lesson is accompanied by a workbook follows a similar plan:
    • Page 1 :: Communication/ Discussion/ Topic orientated
    • Page 2 :: Grammar/ Language
    • Page 3 :: Phonics/ Vocabulary
    • Page 4 :: Reading (Ongoing Story)
    • Page 5 :: Story Comprehension/ Language
    • Page 6 :: Grammar/ Language Exercise
    • Page 7 :: Achievement Exercise / Assessment
  • Depending on your child’s age and their English skills, instruction will typically consist of a variety of activities including speaking, listening, letter-sound correspondence, sight words, guided oral reading, text comprehension, creative writing, grammar and critical thinking.
  • You don’t need to prepare anything or create teaching materials for an RTL English lesson. It’s all been done for you. Each page of this workbook contains teaching notes to enable you to guide and lead your child through the learning activities. Once your son or daughter has finished their lesson, record their achievements in the progress report form and then simply print the next workbook in the sequence.

Will My Child Learn Phonics?

  • Yes! We teach synthetic & analytical phonics which includes 44 basic phonemes, 22 beginning blends and 15 ending blends.Our students learn and practise phonics throughout our Foundation, Elementary, Intermediate and Upper Intermediate stages. Our Advanced stage uses phonics to teach pronunciation. 
  • We pay particular attention to blended consonant sounds (that are located at the beginning and end of many words). We teach vowels first and then consonants. As soon as possible we teach children to read. In practice this means after students have learnt 5 vowel sounds and 2 consonants they can read a few words by themselves. Children are also taught how to decode words, so from the very beginning they can see new simple words and know how to read them.
