Neeti Nagarkar

_DSC01512Mumbai

Neeti has been using Jolly Phonics with children for over a decade and has seen remarkable improvement in their reading and writing skills. She is amazed to see their pace and ease of learning as they build confidence, correct pronunciation and learn the language as opposed to memorising spellings. She has now started working with children with special needs, and is happy to see their excitement when using Jolly Phonics.

As a trainer, Neeti wants to help as many children as she can benefit from learning English through Jolly Phonics, and so she wants to train more teachers, special educators and mothers to make this happen. She is also planning on working with government schools in the Akola district of Maharashtra State.

Preeti graduated from Somaiya College and she is a certified holder of Early Childhood Education and has been in the education sector for 18 years.

Every year many of the students are participants of different competitions and exams including Spell Bee, Spell Quest, Maars and English Olympiad. Students have often won medals and reached an international level within these trails.

Betty O’Connor-Williams

BettyMumbai

Betty studied in both India and America achieving her BA at Bombay University and her ECE from Palomar Community College, San Marcos and certification for Train the Trainer by American TESOL; before she began to teach early years. She became the lead teacher working with 3 and 4 year olds in Virginia, USA until 2009 and returned to India.

On her return to India, Betty opened her own learning centre called Precious Lil’ Ones Preschool, located in Mumbai, whereby an after school programme called Phonicland was introduced; practicing the Jolly Phonics methodology. This programme greatly benefitted children 4-6 years of age, most of them non-native English speakers. These children learned to speak, read, write and spell in English by using Jolly Phonics. Because of this Betty then implemented Jolly Phonics as the curriculum in her preschool. To date, Betty has taught over 600 3 and 4 years olds with Jolly Phonics.

Betty has come across ladies from vernacular backgrounds, with limited English who are wanting to learn the Jolly Phonics method to teach their children at home, and to begin small classes at home to earn an income. This impressed Betty so much, she wanted to reach out to adults in India with the Jolly Phonics method, so that more children can benefit from such a successful programme.

“Jolly Phonics is a fun way to teach and a fun way to learn. When children can read, write and spell they have the power to move forward.”

Aneesha Balwani talks about training teachers in India

Aneesha Balwani“In June-July 2011, I conducted training workshops for teachers from Amity, a chain of schools and universities in India, and for mentors from the international development charity ARK (Absolute Return for Kids).

On 20th and 22nd June 2011, I held a Jolly Phonics training session with the ARK mentors. They were already aware of the programme, but needed training so they could then train teachers in rural areas of India. On the first day of training, we discussed ‘Why Phonics’, then introduced the Jolly Phonics resources, and explored the 5 basic skills.

On the second day, our focus was on the key issue of how to make learning fun for students. I made each trainee choose a letter sound and introduce it to the group for 20 minutes, in the way a teacher would to engage a class! We also discussed how Jolly Phonics facilitates the process of independent writing.

I conducted a workshop for the Amity teachers on 1st July 2011 at Amiown Pre-Primary school. They really enjoyed the training session – all of them actively participated in the workshop, sang the Jolly Songs and did all the letter sound actions with me!

For me, it was a great opportunity to be invited by the director of Amity Schools and ARK to train their teachers.”

Sarasa Ashok talks about her Jolly Phonics training

Sarasa Ashok“I recently gave three training sessions to teachers about how to use Jolly Phonics in their schools.

Firstly, every year I am called in to hold a training sessions in Chennai at the Balar Mandir reserach foundation, with about 50 teachers from various schools, on ‘Early childhood development’, ‘How to be an inspiring teacher’ and ‘How to make a better student’. Since becoming a Jolly Phonics Trainer, I have learnt a lot more strategies about how to teach English, which has enabled me to share new methods of teaching English with these teachers, and helped me deliver more successful and effective sessions.

I recently traveled to Nagercoil, South Tamilnadu, India, to implement Jolly Phonics in the curriculum there, and held a two-day training session there which 70 teachers attended. Everyone was very enthusiastic, had so much fun doing all the actions, and participated in practical activities, which was awesome!

The training course began with the questions that I am usually asked: ‘Why phonics?’, ‘What’s unique about Jolly Phonics?’, ‘What are the basic skills taught?’, as Jolly Phonics is a very different method of teaching to what teachers in that are used to. At the end of the training they were spellbound after looking at videos of children reading fluently and writing independently after using Jolly Phonics, which I felt really made the training successful. After this training session, the local school authorities were happy to introduce Jolly Phonics into their curriculum.

I held a one-day Jolly Phonics training session for teachers from 2 schools at Chidambaram in which the children come from low-income areas. Once again, it was an exciting day for the teachers, but I also found it quite challenging to get them to change over to a new programme from their conventional method of teaching English.”

S. V. Gomathi talks about her experiences with Jolly Phonics

S V Gomathi“I underwent Jolly Phonics training in 2004, and initially researched the use of the programme with ESL children in the slums of Hyderabad, India. I found the results amazing, as the programme had a great impact on the English language of the children as well as the teachers who were teaching Jolly Phonics.

I worked with Education Services companies and NGOs like the Centre for British Teachers, The Educare Trust, Rumi Education Private Limited & Absolute Return for Kids (ARK). I helped these organizations by planning and executing the implementation of Jolly Phonics in schools, and by training their representatives in Jolly Phonics, in order for them to them provide training in the schools they were serving. I also travelled around India providing training to the teachers of high-end to low-budget schools. I worked with more than 100 schools, including IB schools, and trained more than 1,000 teachers.

At ARK I developed a team of Mentors in 2010 by training them in Jolly Phonics and facilitating team building. The team was also trained in how to help teachers make Jolly Phonics more effective and result oriented within the classroom.

At present, many chains of schools have approached me for Jolly Phonics training and intend to be full trained by next academic year.

As a trainer I love Jolly Phonics, and I am now experimenting with it with my daughter who is 1 year old.”
