“Before my daughter started SPELD NZ tutoring with, she was highly anxious about school work, hated reading and could not retain spelling words or multiplication and division equations. She has been tutored for one and a half years, during school terms. Among many of my daughter’s achievements are such things as liking reading chapter books, accurately recalling maths equations, and her teacher has been impressed with her improvement of spelling and writing. My daughter is noticeably more relaxed about school which she admits is due to her SPELD NZ tutoring.”

“My son had a lot of trouble at primary, intermediate and college with his spelling, handwriting and telling the time. We tried many things and nothing helped him until we started with SPELD NZ. The assessment showed he was dyslexic and dysgraphic and he started straight away with a teacher, once a week for one hour. He turned into a happy, achieving student within a month and is now finishing a Bachelor of Science at Auckland University. SPELD NZ was a fantastic help to our family and I recommend it to adults and children – they really are the experts in this field.”

“My son was struggling at school despite interventions that had been put in place such as Reading Recovery and Rainbow Reading. He didn’t want to go to school and his self-esteem was at an all time low. A friend of mine suggested we approach SPELD NZ. We had him assessed and discovered he was dyslexic. It was such a relief to finally have some concrete evidence and know what we were dealing with. They referred us to a SPELD NZ teacher who worked with him for two and half years. She was amazing and gave him the skills and self belief to not only survive at school but to thrive. He is a different child now. Gone are the days when he would refuse to come out from beneath the bed covers in the mornings! He is now a motivated, hard working Year 9 student whose latest exam results blew us away. I credit SPELD NZ with saving my son and although he no longer needs a tutor I know that should any problems arise they are only a phone call away. I highly endorse SPELD NZ – it is a fantastic investment in your child’s future.”

“His tutor has huge warmth and a great connection with him. It’s really important kids want to learn and he responds to her which is huge. She takes the panic away for him and very calmly says “here’s a way you can do that”. She’s able to push him to the limit of where he can go.”
