Nakhon Sri Thammarat
Jay has been teaching learners of all ages for over 20 years. He has spent the last 15 years helping design and establish effective language curriculum in schools all over Thailand, conducting well over 100 teacher training and professional development sessions in virtually every province. As a bilingual professional, Jay has led training for both Oxford and Cambridge publishing, the Thai MOE and Se-ed Publishing. However, his passion is Jolly Phonics.
Jay was introduced to Jolly Phonics in the UK over 15 years ago and immediately saw its potential as a fast track to literacy. Its multi-sensory style and fast pace is the perfect medium for engaging and developing young learners.
“Education is not the learning of facts but the training of the mind to think.” – Albert Einstein
This is the motto of Jay‘s school and Jolly Phonics is the way he goes about this process. Students learn quickly, efficiently, correctly and, more importantly, with confidence and success. He has seen shy, nervous children walk in at the beginning of the year and in a very short time they are happy, knowledgeable and confident to learn anything sent their way. This is down a strong foundation in phonics.
Jay is bilingual and available to teach full training in either English or Thai.
