My boy Charlie 7 years old will be going into 1st class this September in the gael scoil and we live in Swords.

He will be given a special assist teacher within a small group 5-6 pupils who need extra help.

He is struggling in reading Irish and the maths through Irish, also they only started Jolly phonics at Easter so he scored below average but it was brought to my attention and we are doing extra English reading activities and he has improved through a retest but is still below average. He also has a photographic memory so thats why i never spotted it. I have been helping him with the English reading but the Irish I find difficult myself as I only have done the parents classes and I wasn´t taught in school.
My 2nd boy will be starting junior infants also in Sep so he may benefit help also.

I was thinking a minimum of 2 days a week say tue & thur help with homework from Sep or if your available during the summer let me know also.

Must be Garda vetted and approved by other bodies. Experience with this age group preferred.

Look forward to hearing from you,

Geraldine

Hello Orlaith,
Would you be available to give one or two sessions to a 6 year old this week or next? I would value your guidance on effective ways to teach literacy/jolly phonics.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Ali
