Naledi struggled with English grammar, spelling, and writing and his fine motor skills were not on par with his age. I believe it was because of not having enough practice due to the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown.
In 2020 he only attended the first term when the pandemic started, and we kept him home until October 2020. During that time, he was mostly kept indoors as a safety precaution. In June, we relocated from one town to the other, which meant changing schools in the middle of the pandemic and having very little time to adjust and fit into the new school. This created confusion in his life and disrupted his academic progress, and as a result, slowed down his progress.
We discovered Edublox online as we were searching for good schools to help him catch up with what he had missed while at home. During this search, we came across Edublox. We read about it and found positive, inspiring testimonials from parents who enrolled their children. We then took him for an assessment and we discovered they were offering exactly what we were looking for. We then decided to enroll Naledi with Edublox.
Today, he is a very happy, kind, playful child, full of energy and very curious. We noticed his fine motor skills have improved but still need a bit of work. He can read now. He is able to skip rope. His sense of direction has improved generally and when reading. His words per minute increased from 0 to 19 words per minute in only six months.
In March 2021, he was not able to read nor write any of the words presented to him. His reading is now almost on Grade 1, Term 3 level.
We recommend Edublox to other parents because we believe Edublox takes time to understand the child so that they can figure out how to help them excel in their studies and nurture their full potential. Not many teachers take the time to learn their student’s strengths and weaknesses and put in the time to work and develop those weaknesses into strengths.
Edublox tutors find the best solutions to get their students up to speed and improve academically. They help them find confidence in themselves and what they do. The kids want to do better and are encouraged to be the very best version of themselves. Personally, I would recommend Edublox to all parents whose children are struggling and need assistance in any area of development. The Edublox EASY programme works and the teachers are helpful and absolutely amazing.
