"Dear Alison and Janice
I have sat down a number of times to write this letter but I couldn’t work out how to thank you both sufficiently for helping my son
Fortunately for us, my Mum was talking to a lady from her workplace who suggested bringing
After Lachlan completed his second block of tutoring I decided to do the Learning How to Learn Course myself as I couldn’t believe how much
Thank you so much!!"
"I am a mother of 2 boys aged 6 and 11. My oldest son was having difficulties with his reading and especially spelling; so I decided to do the Applied Scholastics™ Phonics Course to help my son myself, instead of paying for tutoring. I have learned so much with Study Technology which was taught to me that I was also able to help my youngest son (who is in Grade 1) and a daughter of a friend of mine who is in kindy.
The Study Technology I learned was just so simple that anyone can teach their children; anyone can pick up on why their children have problems and KNOW how to fix it easily. I spoke to my youngest son’s teacher and mentioned to her the barriers that children (and adults) run into, and how to fix it. She tried this out on her class and got results.
I currently do volunteer work for Applied Scholastics in my spare time because it is a non-profit organisation and they are genuinely interested in helping others, especially children, and I REALLY want to get Study Technology and phonics known to improve the literacy standard in Australia. Thanks Applied Scholastics!"

"This course has been wonderful! I now really and truly know that I can tutor someone easily and effectively with this programme and I know too that it really works, as I have already been tutoring my children and they are having lots of wins!
I love this course and I love the chart and the whole gradient of the course. It’s hard to put into words, but it’s like coming out now at the end of the course with a whole new understanding and knowing all the data and the data has now become mine to use (not just like you’re told something but haven’t made it your own yet).
I totally get it that there are 44 sounds in the English language and these can be written in different ways. Somehow at the end now, it seems really easy and very usable and such a perfectly worked out course - it’s very awesome! Also using the barriers to study makes it much more effective.
So thank you to Alison for putting all this time in to get me through and thank you to Jan for doing the last part with me and this has been wonderful! Thank you!"

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all very much. Hannah has learned a great deal. Her writing, reading, spelling and comprehension have improved tremendously. She is now not afraid to tackle her homework and reading, etc. She has become a more confident reader and speller. Thanks again for all your hard work.”
“I am so very happy with the fantastic work and results Alison has had with our son Kye. In a little over a few months we have noticed that Kye has gained a great deal more ability and confidence. Alison, you are doing a fantastic job and Kye really enjoys his sessions with you. Thank you very, very much for your help in the past and thanks in advance for all the help we know Kye is going to get going forward. ”
"I remember asking my mother-in-law how to teach my son to read when he was little. She told me that it was just something that they picked up as they went along. I wanted to help him learn to read but I didn’t know how.
Now I know how to teach someone to read without depending on pictures to recognise what the word is. Now I don’t have to sit idly by while a teenage child struggles with schoolwork because they can’t read properly. I can do something about it now."
