Looking for a tutor to help your primary schooler? At Coach House, we work with students in sessions lasting an hour each week.

Our Educational Director, Ally Chumley, is a Master’s qualified teacher and author of 45 books used in schools across Australia. She is a highly valued literacy consultant who works with this country’s leading educational publishers and curriculum writers. More importantly, she’s a teacher with decades of classroom experience in the field – what teachers call the ‘chalkface’.

Ally is also a specialist in preparing students for NAPLAN – the government’s compulsory national literacy and numeracy testing program. She has written sixteen educational books and a range of NAPLAN practice tests used to prepare students for the testing that happens each year in May.

At Coach House, Ally has implemented a comprehensive literacy program called SPELLS – Synthetic Phonics English Language Learning System. We assess each student, looking for gaps in their literacy learning, then we teach using explicit instruction and mastery activities until kids develop the knowledge base they need to progress in reading, writing, spelling, grammar and punctuation. It is not a difficult goal to achieve for students – but it does take some expertise and lots of individual attention.

Call 0437 155 338 to make an appointment to see how we can help your child. The first consultation happens with no obligation and at no cost.
