Kids English Literacy
We are a New Zealand private teaching and tuition service operated by Registered NZ Primary School Teachers. We teach young children who are at the beginning of their learning journey and those who are struggling to develop good reading and writing skills in a school environment. If your child is aged between 4 - 8 years old, our mission is to teach your child how to read and write well. We believe this comes about through explicit teaching of Structured Literacy, that is well supported through scientific research and evidenced-based teaching. We plan and teach in a way that builds strong brain pathways and sets your child up with self-confidence and success in reading and writing.
Founder and Managing Director
My name is Kate Ng and my husband Dennis and I have raised a family of four children on Auckland's North Shore for the last 25 years. We love our local beaches and often spend our holidays somewhere close to the water.
I have been teaching in NZ education for 25 years, in both private and public kindergarten and primary schools. The body of research known as the Science of Reading, provides essential evidence in how children learn to read and is a guide to how I teach. The five essential skills of reading (phonemic awareness, phonological skills, oral fluency, vocabulary and comprehension) also play an important part in planning your child's learning goals. As a specialist teacher in Structured Literacy and Language, my unique skill is intervention with young children who are struggling to develop well in reading and writing. I also specialise in teaching explicit literacy to beginning readers in Yr 0 / 1. The research is evident that this way of learning is what prevents reading and writing difficulties later on.
As teacher, parent and student we are on an exciting journey of learning. Sharing these milestones, achievements and successes together is priceless. I look forward to talking with you soon.

“Few would deny that teaching children to read, write, spell, listen and speak is among the foremost responsibilities of educators. Without well-developed reading skills, children cannot participate fully in classroom learning." Dr Louisa Cook Moats
