Perth English and Maths Tutors Share Why Every Aussie Needs English Education
PERTH, Australia, February, 2013 – Janice McGuire, Teaching Manager at Perth English and maths tutoring service NumberWorks’nWords says, “More and more Australians are starting to believe that a comprehensive understanding of the national language is not as important as it used to be and the newer literary statistics support this. I understand that we now communicate through text, instant messaging and email however, a detailed knowledge of the English language is still important.”
As measured by the Australian Adult Literacy and Life Skills Survey, only 54 per cent of Australians between the ages of 15 and 74 years had adequate or better prose, and 53 per cent had adequate document literacy skills*.
According to Janice, a good grasp of the English language is important to becoming a valued and successful member of Australian society. Basic tasks such as reading instructions from a medicine bottle, completing a tax return, or accessing information from the Internet all require reasonably high English skills. Some children may not quite understand the value of good literacy until they are faced with actual, real-life situations that require a better understanding of the English word, but parents should instil in the next generation its importance and indeed, necessity. www.numberworksnwords.com.au/
Although learning English starts in the home when a baby learns to talk, the important intricacies of the language are taught in school. Some children adapt to the subject naturally; but some need a little more support. NumberWorks’nWords, a specialist in maths and English tuition in Perth, has designed specific English tutorial programs that address children’s individual needs and complement their work at school. Each program is developed by qualified English tutors to achieve the following outcomes:
- Proven literacy gains in reading, comprehension, writing, spelling and grammar;
- Continuance of maintenance and development of skills;
- Improved motivation and behaviour; and
- Enjoyment of books. www.numberworksnwords.com.au/
Josh, a 7-year old student who gets help from the Perth English tutors at NumberWorks’nWords is doing so well that his parents have this to say:
“I am thrilled with the progress my son has made since attending the NumberWorks’nWords English program. His core English skills have developed significantly as has his overall confidence and ability. Not only have his school results improved, he is now taking the initiative at home to read independently, explore words and give it a go. He is happier at school and it’s no longer a chore to get him to read or do his homework.”
Students and parents can book an assessment at www.numberworksnwords.com.au/ where a special program will be designed by the Perth English and maths tutors to fit the student’s needs and improve their literacy skills.
