"This comprehensive, colourful programme offers everything: phonics, tracking, kinaesthetic work, visual work and games as a one stop package. No need to rummage around looking in different spelling books for a particular phoneme worksheet – it’s all here. The variety of exercises allows you to pick and choose which best suit your students’ needs."

The excellent graphic resources are child friendly with linked activities and games making learning fun for both child and supporting adult. The whole family can get involved! (Ours did). Hands On Teaching has given Claire the confidence to learn. She now has a store cupboard of strategies to use which have ultimately constituted to positive learning experiences through school and outside it."

"My daughter, Charlotte’s reading and spelling has been hugely helped by Miranda and the Hands On Teaching Programme. She enjoys her weekly session and looks forward to them. The Programme is well designed, the exercises are well explained and easy to follow. I am sure Charlotte would not have made the progress she has without the help of Miranda and the Hands On Teaching Programme."

"When I first took my son to see Mandy at Hands on Teaching he thought he was "stupid", he was very low on confidence and was reluctant to read. He came out of his first session full of smiles and told me "It's alright that I struggle with spelling, Mandy is showing me how to do it and she's got really cool coloured pens to help too" He is now on his second Hands On Teaching booklet produced by Mandy and has learnt to break words down and use her methods in the class room too. He is now a much more confident 9 year old who no longer sees his spelling difficulty as a barrier to learning. Mandy has a lovely relaxed manner with children and I have since recommended her to others."
