What Our Customers Have to Say
Carrie Carter (Gray, Maine)
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.
Juanita DeWitt (retired teacher, Portland, Maine)
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.
Shirley Dempsey (Windham, Maine)
This training is the best PD I have connected so much with in a long time. Throughout the training, I could picture which students would benefit from it and how I would use it effectively.
Kelly Rich (Windham, Maine)
We are seeing AMAZING results at the primary school. It is so exciting! In my 36 years of teaching, Jolly Phonics is the program that has had the MOST impact for students.
Jim King, Tutor (Braintree, Massachusetts)
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.
Judi Logue, Parent (Cape Elizabeth, Maine)
I highly recommend Jennie as a reading tutor. She knows how to quickly fill in gaps in a student’s phonics knowledge and thereby build their skill and confidence. My daughter’s ability to read greatly improved.
