Public Speaking and Phonics
Tutor: Bonita Jerome
Length: Full Year Class Period: Thursday (11:15 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.)

Description: Using Orton-Gillingham phonograms, students will learn basic phonograms and spelling rules that provide a wonderful foundation for the adventure of learning to read, write, and spell well. This approach works well with any reading program you may be using in your home. Along with the spelling and grammar components, students will learn public speaking skills and prepare a presentation to give to classmates and parents at the end of each semester.

Covid - 19 Contingency Plan - In the event that we are forced to transition to online classes at any point in the school year, this class will not be held online.  Parents will receive a refund for any classes that do not meet in person.

Tutor: Bonita Jerome fell in love with teaching while working as an administrator and tutor at a small missionary kids’ school in the Philippines just after graduating from high school. Returning to the U.S. in 1990, she pursued a career in elementary and middle school education with an emphasis on language arts. She then spent over a decade teaching elementary and middle school students at private Christian schools. Bonita is excited to have the opportunity to continue using her teaching experience in the homeschool community as she homeschools her own three children and begins her second year of tutoring at CHAT.
