Are you EAGER for your child to start reading? Eager Readers bridges the literacy gap between pre-school and big school. Preschoolers develop their literacy skills through fun games and activities, giving them confidence to start Kindergarten!

✔ Eager Readers was developed and is taught by a Master’s degree qualified Reading Specialist and ESL teacher with twenty years of experience in Canada, USA, UK and Australia

✔ Classes are 30-45 minutes per week during school term time

✔ Children are taught a range of foundational skills, including phonological awareness, phonics, vocabulary development, reading comprehension and reading strategies

✔ The first class is considered a trial – if you don’t think Eager Readers is right for your child, no cost is incurred. Classes are designed for children aged 3 to 7, readers and non-readers alike. A free initial assessment will determine appropriate class placement to meet your child’s needs.

    Thank you for guiding Sophie to a perfect start in reading. Sophie has enjoyed every single moment of her classes with Miss Tara. As parents, we are very proud of Sophie’s achievements in reading over the past two years. Sophie is now able to read simple books independently. She could now “guess” most of the new words by blending letter sounds together independently, which I have never thought that a 5 year old child could achieve. I am so grateful to receive your professional advise on how to guide children read. Your feedbacks about Sophie’s progress in class was also very helpful. Miss Tara, you are an inspirational teacher and your work is simply amazing. Sophie will miss you very much. I will definitely enrol my son in your reading classes when he is old enough to join. I highly recommend Eager Readers for a good start in early literacy development for all children.

    I started my son Luke in Eager Readers during his last preschool year, to get him started with letters and sounds. I was hoping to build his confidence and make the most of his inquisitive nature before school started. Three terms in and I am still surprised each week at just how far he has come and just how much he enjoys it! Every week is a fun, engaging and personal learning experience guided by the ever patient Tara. I am very thankful to have discovered Eager Readers.

    My pre-school twins love their weekly lessons with Tara. The lessons are stimulating, fun, interesting, systematic and innovative. Tara is also very patient and gentle with the children. I highly recommend Tara’s classes to any mum of pre-school children. She is brilliant!

    My daughter has only done one term with Tara and we’ve seen great results already. The most important thing we’ve noticed is a huge improvement in her enthusiasm and confidence in trying to read. Tara has been so great in fostering this confidence through her fun games and activities and suiting the lesson specifically to my daughter’s learning style. I would thoroughly recommend Eager Readers!

    My daughter is the youngest in her daycare class so we were unsure if she would be suitable for Eager Readers. After one term with Tara, she is now recognising simple words, is able to read (and now write) the names of everyone in her family and her friends and she can now accurately recognise all of her beginning sounds. But most importantly she is demonstrating an enthusiastic love of reading.

    Tara is brilliant! Her lessons are individually tailored to engage each child, in order to achieve their maximum learning potential. Since beginning our lessons with Tara, Isaac has grown considerably in his ability and continues to improve with each week and most importantly, thoroughly enjoys his lessons and enjoys the world of reading! Thank you 🙂
