Although Toni’s degree is in maths and science, in the last few years she has become interested in early years learning , particular in the field of phonics and mathematical thinking for Early Years Foundation Skills and KS1 and has written a phonics reading scheme specifically for use by parents who wish to help their children to learn to read and write.
Toni will be delighted to help your child to enjoy his/her studies, build confidence and achieve greater levels of success at school.
