The following are a series of kind words shared by our course participants, schools, teachers and parents.
"Attending your PLD in 2018 was a game-changer for our school.
Since then, we have implemented school-wide Structured Literacy, and strengthened our Third Wave Learners with an authentic Team approach - teachers, teacher aides, external agencies, private tutors with expertise in supporting students with literacy difficulties, and families involved, all on the same page."
"I would like to say that our Teacher Aides are still buzzing about the training you gave them recently. We have put some Writing interventions in place using your PD as a guide and just this morning I had a Mum pop in to say what a huge difference these writing lessons are having for her son and his confidence as a writer."
Karen D - Associate Principal/SENCO - .
"It was awesome to attend your Wobbly Kids book launch webinar yesterday. Thanks so much! You are so inspiring."
"Working with Jenny has transformed student progress and achievement at our school. We now have a much clearer shared understanding of how to support the cognitive development of underachieving students - and the results speak for themselves. Since working with Jenny, we have become much better at matching the right interventions to the right students, but her guidance has transformed our professional practice across the whole school, particularly around Literacy instruction. I am delighted to highly recommend working with Jenny Tebbutt."
Jim Turrell Principal - Limehills School, Southland, NZ
"Working with Jenny through Raising Achievement has made a huge difference to my teaching practice. I have seen incredible shifts in progress and self-esteem in many of the children at my school who previously struggled to learn and were disheartened by it. Jenny’s courses provided research-based explanations for third-wave learner issues as well as providing tools that I could implement in the classroom and school-wide immediately. Through the work I did with Jenny, I have enabled my staff to be the SENCo in their own rooms, giving them the confidence to meet the needs of the children (rather than expecting teacher aide hours)."
Lexia Copp - Career Mentoring Participant
"Best webinar series I have attended. I enjoy how Jenny is easy to talk to and ask questions of where I am not made to feel dumb. The power points are easy to follow and given in time to print off before the webinar."
"Thanks a million for your time, effort, resources and great passion Jenny. Tonight's webinar was just amazing and you are so inspiring down to earth and we can relate to your language and great teachings. Thanks for sharing your pearls of wisdom so we can take it out into the wider community, Much appreciated."
Sandra R - Parent
"This is the MOST helpful PD I have come across specifically for LSCs. Far better than anything provided. The perfect balance between research, theory and practical ideas that I can use specifically in my role. I just need to go over all the notes again. While it was the perfect pace, I need to commit my learning to long term memory. I also have great ideas for actioning what I’ve learnt to benefit the school."
