Give them the future they deserve

Global Education Academy provides tutoring to Year 4 students in literacy and numeracy.

What makes our program successful

  • The only research-based learning centre (Cognitive Load Theory)
  • Program developed by the founder – Dr Majeda Awawdeh (previously managed  ICAS exams at UNSW)
  • Fully qualified educators with many years’ experience
  • Specialised small groups

Children develop their attitudes and beliefs in their abilities around this age. Year 4 is when they start evaluating themselves and become more aware of their ability. We believe every child has the potential, they only need the right guidance to reach it. Our unique proven method delivered by our qualified, experienced and passionate teachers nurture children’s thirst for learning, lift their self-esteem and ultimately enable them to reach their full potential.

If your child is advanced, you may consider preparing them to sit the selective school entrance test and/or try an academic scholarship for private schools. This is the time to start working on it.

Literacy

The English program includes four components:

Reading –  oral and silent reading strategies, reading fluency.

Reading Comprehension – Comprehension is a process of constructing meaning from clues in the text, as well as considering information in the student’s prior knowledge and experience including their language acquisition. This process of building meaning involves interaction between students and the text.

Writing – Developing understandings of writing constructs, text types and their purposes

Language Conventions – Instruction in a range of spelling strategies, acquisition of broad vocabulary, syntax and grammatical constructs.

Course structure

The course is structured for 4 terms of 10 weeks each. Students attend a 2-hour class once a week.

Each term students receive a GEA book that is mapped to the syllabus and based on Cognitive Load Theory.

In week 9 of each term students are assessed to measure their progress. Full feedback is given to students. Parents receive a comprehensive report for their child’s progress. Week 10 is the consolidation week.

The year 4 program is an excellent program for preparing students for Year 5 NAPLAN. NAPLAN assesses the three main literacy areas Reading Comprehension, Language Conventions and Writing. All these subjects are covered in the English course. NAPLAN also assesses Numeracy (Concepts, strategies and Problem Solving) that are covered in our Maths course.

Numeracy

All Maths programs at GEA include three main components:

  • Concepts
  • Strategies
  • Problem Solving

The focus in this level is on conceptual understanding of place value, whole numbers, operations, fractions, measurement, space, chance and data. Students learn using carefully-written books that introduce the concepts in a way that enable schemas acquisition. The program builds on previous knowledge and connects maths to everyday life. Students learn the inverse relationship of operation and are empowered by various mathematical strategies. In problem solving, students learn the UPSL TM  strategy (Understand, Plan, Solve and Learn).
