Lianne Bantjes offers specialised therapeutic tutoring for children and adults who want to further develop their English reading & literacy knowledge and skills.
She believes that a supportive & nurturing environment encourages the development of self-confidence and improves self-esteem, which is the foundation for any learning to take place.
Lianne helps individuals :
- who struggle to read at grade level
- who are failing English as a subject at school
- who understand that success in every school subject, including Mathematics, is affected by the ability to read for meaning
- who may only be able to read mechanically but who cannot yet effectively read for meaning
- who want to cope better with the amount of reading expected of learners when they reach high school
- who are second or third language English speakers and would like to improve their communication skills
- who are foreign nationals and who would like to improve their communication skills in English
What Reading Therapy does:
- Increases the chance of other subject marks improving
- Improves self-confidence
- Develops self-esteem
- Moves the individual from learning to read through to reading to learn
- Reading becomes enjoyable rather than a chore and the person now reads for pleasure
- School work & homework is completed faster & with greater independence
- Learners experience greater success & are therefore motivated to study further
- Learners cope better in high school and with the demands of tertiary education
