What Our Customers Have to Say
I have never seen this kind of understanding in all the years I have taught young readers.
I am amazed with the progress and growth.
Thank you so much for inspiring me to love to teach reading and writing and for having a lively, appropriate program that children can’t wait to use.
I am seeing amazing results. The children are highly engaged, making great progress, and enjoying themselves as they learn.
I want to thank you for introducing me to the Jolly Phonics program, for providing me with support and guidance and for sharing my passion for evidence-based phonics instruction.
After teaching secondary school English for 43 years, I recently retired and took on a “Can you help my 6-year-old reluctant-reader with her reading confidence?” tutoring challenge. It took about ten minutes for that feisty first grader to convince me that I was way out of my league.
But Jennie Smith-Brock introduced me to the “Jolly Phonics” philosophy and protocols, and encouraged me to ask follow-up questions as they arose. Her intro’ webinar was enormously helpful, as were the few subsequent consults/conversations that followed. The inexpensive and engaging “Jolly Phonics”-sequenced readers were a life-saver. Clearly, the measurable progress they afforded gave a much-needed boost to my young student and to her crusty teacher, each. Jennie was the competent, patient, sensible, no-nonsense tutor that I myself needed. I whole-heartedly recommend both Jennie and her approach.
