Assessment and Tuition
The Aldon literacy method involves a multi-sensory and multi media-approach. Combining technology with linked activities on worksheets and in workbooks. The Aldon literacy program, which has been tried and tested since 1996, is structured around a sequential, phonetic analysis approach. In addition, we use any other resources that we think might help particular students. All students are different, learn at different rates and have varying learning styles and needs. We cater for all needs and abilities.
During sessions, students work through their own personalised programs under the guidance of our highly trained literacy specialist Teacher. There is no group learning. Students work quietly in their own space, within our pleasant and supportive environment.
Our VCE English students work on analysing texts and writing winning essays. We provide one-on-one tutoring in VCE English and English Language with our VCE tutor who is an expert in her field.
In addition, we provide tutoring for adults who still need to develop fundamental reading and spelling skills. Some adults come to us to improve their writing skills for their current occupations, wanting to confidently be able to use correct sentence structure, grammar and spelling.
At Aldon Tutoring Centres Ballarat we are also able to cater for visual processing problems which affect reading, spelling, handwriting as well as maths. We have a certified Irlen Screener and also resources to use with individuals who have Dyslexia.
