This is a discussion on Phonics in Tampines !!! (Class to Commence soon....) within the Tampines forum, part of the Toddlers and Preschoolers (1-5 years old) category; Dear parents, My older son (k2) attends a branded kindergarten but sadly he's still not able to read. The teacher ...
My older son (k2) attends a branded kindergarten but sadly he's still not able to read. The teacher asked me better to find "special needs" teacher for my son. Luckily I bumped into my friend and she told me her daughter (k2) is attending Phonic lessons in Tampines and suggested me to contact her. Teacher Karen started private lessons with my child because he was a very difficult child to teach. Once tr.Karen almost gave up on him but she decided to give another try. His level of literacy was only a Nursery 1 level. But In less than 7 months, my son is now reading a decent story book and teacher karen is preparing him for primary 1. My husband and I so happiieeee.........
Now, I want to send my second child (4 years old) to Tr. Karen but she needs 4 more students to start a new class. She told me not to be so kan-cheong. Infact she suggested that I can start my child next year in January 2015. If parents are keen, can pm me or contact Tr. Karen directly at 98439995.Teacher Karen is a god sent teacher into my child's life. She is very good and firm with children also teach for many years in Independent ICreative school. I hope the class will form soon !!! can't wait.....
how much is the charges?
I've contacted phonics teacher. Thank you very much for sharing. My girl very excited 'cause got friends there.
She like the classroom, very interesting.... colourful !
I had come across this thread somewhere in March 2015 and decide to give Teacher Karen a call. Upon visiting her, I am very impress by the fact that all her material is customised and done by herself. This tell me a lot about her knowledge and experience. She is not just the normal teacher outside where they will buy books or material and go through it. She had manage to come up with her own unique material which I guess from her vast experience. I had send in my daughter who has no foundation in English, she had arrived in Singapore from China. I have great difficulties in coaching her English and I guess that Phonetic will be a good start. My wife is from China and she cannot coach my daughter in English. I am the only bread bringer in the family and my work required around 11 hours of my time daily. My daughter like the class and not only is it entertaining but educational as well. After 1.5 months, I can witness great improvement. I will said it is a miracle and I decided to call Miracle Karen instead of Teacher Karen. Teacher Karen is an understatement.
For those who thinking of Calling Miracle Karen, you can reach her at 98439995. But I must warn you, she does not have much time slot left. Call while stock lasts.
I panicked when my son was unable to read at the beginning of the year and he will be attending PI next year. After trying to teach him to read for a term and there is no progress. I realise I was unable to teach him and had to send him to attend phonics lessons. After searching from the internet, I found A'mayzing Phonics which is nearby my house, home based, the class is in small groups and most importantly, my son likes the teacher even after the first meeting/orientation with her.
My son started his lessons with teacher Karen in early March 2015. Thankfully, he show great interest and is willing to make an effort to practise at home. After he attended a few lessons, I see the difference between a professional (Karen) and unprofessional (myself) - my son shows improvement in his reading skills compare to before.
My son is reading more story books at home now as he can pronounce more words correctly and I am very happy to see him putting on a smile when he read - it shows that he is actually enjoying the story himself as well.
I am very thankful to find A'mayzing Phonics and have teacher Karen to teach my son. I agreed with the comments I see online saying that she is a firm and caring teacher.
Thank you Karen.
For those that is facing the same problem like me I would really suggest you try giving her a call or WhatsApp her @ 9843 9995.
