Students build their analytical skills, gaining greater insight into the choices made by the creators of texts and how these impact readers. The focus on evaluation in the final years of the primary curriculum requires a larger technical vocabulary, greater ability to understand abstract meaning and figurative language, and to master a range of text types. Pre-essay writing skills are consolidated in preparation for Year 7.

Based on the Australian National Curriculum for K-6, Cluey’s approach to primary English focuses on core literacy skills, including reading and writing techniques in the early years, and grammar and punctuation in the senior years. Our personalised approach gives your child the opportunity to slow down in the areas they find challenging to ensure they ‘get it’.

“My 10 year old has had a 'in person' tutor before Cluey Learning but they didn't really engage him and it wasn't effective. Our experience with Cluey has been really great for him, Melissa has really engaged him and worked with his personality so well. I think online tutoring at home worked especially well for us, its easier and the tutors are fantastic. As a result, his confidence with English has really grown. We are very happy with Cluey learning and would happily recommend them.”
