Literacy Steps

Structured Literacy Tutoring

Structured Literacy is an approach based on Science—the science of how we learn. At Literacy Steps, we provide explicit and direct instruction that is structured, sequential, cumulative, and diagnostic. We use a multimodal approach that uses visual, auditory, and kinaesthetic methods to learn.

Our team are highly experienced registered teachers and specialists in their field. It enables us to empower students with dyslexia or who have neurodiverse learning needs, who may be struggling or to accelerate students.


Jennie has been amazing with my 6 year old. Within a month, his school teacher had noticed a difference in his literacy and he also went up 2 reading levels. Jennie also gives you fantastic advice and simple tools that you can use to support your child at home. Jennie makes learning fun and exciting for children.
