Testimonials

I took my daughter to a Free Trial Class when I noticed that as an ESL child, English was a barrier for her to fit in and fully engage with programs in her ELC. While I hoped to bring her up as a bi-lingual child, the challenge is that with a non-English speaking environment in our family life, she was left on her own to pick up English at school. Difficulties associated with understanding others or expressing herself in English made her restless during group times and hindered her concentration during class activities at the ELC. At that stressful time, I came to know Love2Learn and made the best decision taking her to Lisa’s class!

She was instantly drawn to Lisa’s program in the first session and has since stayed on in the program. I noticed significant improvements in her language abilities, overall confidence and curiosity for learning. The program is multi-sensory, with each letter sound illustrated by a variety of vivid, familiar objects, followed by demonstration and discussion of when and how the letter sound is used. The technique Lisa applies in the multisensory instruction helped her to develop images to associate the letter sound with and understand the meaning of them. She used her new skills to apply to her reading by herself after only 2-3 sessions and she was so proud of herself! After every class she is keen to get home and read the Little Learner readers (books Lisa lent to her students based on their reading readiness level). My daughter is far more engaged in her ELC classes now.

As a parent, I have also benefited from Lisa’s programs. She is a very experienced and caring teacher. She goes the extra mile to help me understand the school system, especially the implicit norms and mindsets that as a first-time parent, I have no experience and knowledge of.

I would highly recommend Lisa’s programs for parents who are looking to enrich their children’s development, helping them to be better prepared for school and to develop their independence and learning.

We absolutely adore Love2Learn, that the teacher is proficient at articulating where my son needed help with his English, while putting no pressure on him at all. My son always looks forward going there and we saw the improvement in him from the first lesson.

Lisa is very open about the teaching methods she uses and shared some useful links with us, which we found very beneficial as a family, whose English is the second language. It’s truly amazing!
