Dear South African parents,

Greetings from KZN.

Misty and I (Wayne) are here to support South African parents with all things literacy, age 5 to 14, TCRWP (Teachers College Reading and Writing Project, Columbia University, New York). We offer writing workshop, reading assessments (accuracy, fluency, literal and inferential comprehension), phonics, word study, and more.

At the moment we teach via 40-60 minute one-to-one Zoom sessions. In-person (KZN) sessions to resume later. You can book a virtual “meet ‘n greet” with Misty or me to talk more about your child’s literacy needs and whether ILG can support you and your family.

Here’s a digital calendar with available days and times:

We can do the “meet ‘n greet” through Skype or Zoom, whichever platform you prefer.
