Mr. Tim’s Learning Land is a UK based Phonics School delivering high quality reading and writing programs to children of all ages. It is one of the few schools that has a license from the Thai Ministry of Education to teach phonics.
Since 2007, our overall aim has been to give all of our students the very best start in life and we couldn’t think of a better way to do this than by teaching them how to read, write and speak clearly.
Here at Mr. Tim’s we want to take all of our students from Pre School to Primary and beyond. We really believe that learning is a lifelong journey and that our courses will give your children the gift of Language for Life.
At Mr. Tim’s Learning Land every child matters and is nurtured to progress and enhance their English language skills to the very best of their ability, hence our motto:
“Language for Life.”
There’s no life without language. Giving your child the opportunity to learn to speak, read, and write in English is a priceless gift that will enable them the reach their full potential in life.
Our English courses are directly linked to the UK National Curriculum of England, which delivers a rounded course practicing every facet of your child’s linguistic development to complete native fluency.
Reading & Writing Skills
Our phonics and grammar programs offer a structured curriculum direct from the UK classroom designed by Oxford University and developed for students learning English as a second language.
Our English courses are directly linked to the UK National Curriculum of England, Wales, and Northern Ireland and from our phonics program direct from the UK classroom designed by Oxford University.
Proficiency in English is an essential part of life in the 21st century, and that early exposure to rich and natural language allows young learners to travel confidently towards native speaker fluency.
Meet Mr. Tim!
Mr. Tim is the Head Teacher at Learning Land. He is a professionally qualified UK trained classroom teacher with over 15 years teaching experience.
Why Choose Mr. Tim’s?
Well, first and foremost because I’m running the show! I’ve been teaching children to read and write English for the past 15 years and I know that our phonics first approach to reading and writing works. It’s been fully tried and tested by me personally. I’m a real educator in the business of education.
The most important point I want to make is that in 2006, before I opened Mr. Tim’s Learning Land, I was a teacher and now in 2019, after running a successful phonics school for 10 years, I’m still a teacher. This makes All the Difference because my school is and always will be headed by myself. I know what the teachers need and what the students need.
Very few schools are both owned and managed by real teachers. We are also one of only a small number of schools in Thailand to be fully licensed by the Thai Ministry of Education to teach synthetic phonics. This is an important point as it shows our school, teachers and curriculum have credibility not only from the UK but with the Kingdom of Thailand government as well. My school is judged by YOU the parents on one thing and one thing only – YOUR CHILD’S SUCCESS!!
I believe, there is no life without language and giving your child a head start in life by providing for them the opportunity to learn to speak, read and write in English is a gift to your child that is priceless and will enable them to reach their full potential in life both as an individual and as a valuable, contributing member of society. So what does that mean for students studying at Mr. Tim’s Learning Land?
We only hire qualified, native English speakers with prior teaching experience in the UK or an international school setting. All of our teachers are specialists in synthetic phonics and are constantly upgrading their neducational knowledge through training and professional development.
ALL teachers are trained by myself initially and assessed by myself throughout their 60 day probation period and regularly after that. My teachers are qualified, professional career teachers who are passionate in all that they do.
At Mr. Tim’s we believe parents’ teachers and students should work as a team. After every class we invite parents into the classroom for 10 minutes to listen to all that has just been taught. All key lesson points are covered such as Saying the Sounds, Sound Vocabulary, Blending the Sounds and Writing the Sounds. We do this to empower parents to help their children at home with their reading and writing homework. The key to a child’s success is for all key players to work together as a team for one goal – The goal of teaching your child to read and write quickly and efficiently.
We use Floppy Phonics Sounds and Letters here at Mr. Tim’s which is based around the UK Letters and Sounds synthetic phonics programme. Since 2007, all schools in the UK have been required by law to teach phonics using this systematic phonics programme.
Oxford University Press began publishing Magic Key books as part of the Oxford Reading Tree for children as early as 1985 with loveable characters such as Kipper, Biff, Chip, Floppy, Wilf and Wilma.
Thirty years later, Floppy Phonics Sounds and Letters has been developed which is used extensively in UK Primary Schools which helps deliver the Letters and Sounds curriculum in a fun and engaging manner.
At Mr. Tim’s we believe children must have access to a wide range of resources to complement their learning. No expense has been spared in providing both traditional learning resources such as phonics cubes, dice, magnetic whiteboards and flash cards to state of the art 21st technology resources such as Interactive Whiteboards Board’s and Multi-touch touch screen technology.
We know different students respond to different resources in different ways so we have left no stone unturned in providing the widest range of resources possible to all our students to enable them to have the most positive learning experience in the most engaging learning environment.
