Learner Assist is a learning support business that offers private individual specialist tuition and standardised assessment for Primary-aged and Middle Years students with specific learning difficulties, or who are underachieving in literacy and / or numeracy at school.  Specialist advice for parents and communication with schools and teachers are both offered as  extra forms of support.

Learner Assist promotes the use of evidence-based teaching practices such as Direct Instruction; the explicit, sequentially structured teaching of synthetic phonics (Sounds Write trained and certified) and  MSL (multi-sensory structured language education). 

The teaching methodologies and approaches used are highly suited to students with dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, ASD and ADHD.
