Love Literacy

Fun - Effective - Proven

Phonics, word recognition and early literacy training and resources for teachers, teacher aides and whānau.

At Yolanda Soryl Literacy, we believe in giving every child an opportunity to learn and experience the joy of reading. The training and resources we provide include the fundamental components of The Science of Reading: phonemic awareness, oral language, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. All as part of an integrated approach to learning literacy in a structured literacy programme.

We acknowledge that children learn to read in varying ways, requiring their teachers to draw on a broad tool kit of methods to teach them.

Since 2002, Yolanda Soryl and her team have empowered over 25,000 educators with the knowledge, tools and confidence to provide children with the phonics, word recognition and early literacy skills they need.

Structured literacy designed for the New Zealand classroom.

Phonics, word recognition and early literacy training and resources for schools and whānau.

Last week I flew up to Te Whanganui-a-Tara/Wellington with my whānau to go to my investiture at Government House. There I received the insignia for being awarded the Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to literacy education. I met the Governor General, Dame Cindy Kiro, and her support team, some of whom are teachers! It was also a privilege to meet the other insignia recipients.

I was very impressed by the vegan high tea that they served specially for our table. That helped make it even more of an incredible experience and made us feel very welcome.

I feel very fortunate to be recognised in this way for something that has truly been my passion to do. Thank you very much to the very kind people who nominated me, those who wrote letters of support, and the many kind messages I have received subsequently.
