Welcome to Explicit Education…

Kristie Fleeting has been educating students for over 12 years in various locations, educational settings and year levels.  Over this time, she has observed the need for tailored educational support.  With her vast experience, knowledge of educational philosophy and practice with numerous educational programs she can be a key to success in your child’s education.  


Our Philosophy

Explicit education provides a learning environment where students are taught through instructional scaffolding. Scaffolding is breaking learning into small manageable pieces where children experience multiple opportunities for success. This is conducted by supporting students to understand key concepts, develop confidence and gain independence in learning.


Individual Sessions

Individual education sessions have many benefits to compliment traditional schooling.  Providing fewer distractions, targeting problem areas, offering learning style compatibility and flexibility will assist your child’s educational needs. 

What do these sessions offer?

  • One to one targeted sessions   

  • Working with the student’s current educational needs

  • Goal orientated, specifically focused on unlocking students potential in the selected targeted area.

Reading Comprehension Sessions

Is your child ‘fluently’ reading the words within a text, but failing to process it and understand the meaning?

Reading comprehension revolves around two key elements - vocabulary knowledge and text comprehension.  In order to comprehend the text, students must be able to understand the vocabulary they are reading.  For students to begin reading for meaning, they need to be taught explicit comprehension skills – the ability to infer, reflect and evaluate. 

What do these sessions offer?

  • Explicit teaching of comprehension skills (literal, inferential, reflective and evaluative skills)

  • Age appropriate reading texts

  • Building of vocabulary skills

  • Questioning techniques

  • Group discussions

Multiplication Sessions

Is your child writing them out, but still struggling to memorise them
?


Are times tables becoming an unnecessary problem in your home?

The multiplication session can help!

Multiplication is everywhere in our daily lives! For students who do not have a solid grasp on multiplication may find other mathematical concepts like division, fractions and algebra challenging

.
