Creative Techniques

Our qualified teachers use techniques that allow students to become creative in the learning process (rather than worksheets), making tutoring sessions FUN and achieving maximum results. Students gain the skills to complete creative writing assignments on their own using techniques they learn in our literacy classes.


Expert Literacy Help

Our professional tutors incorporate different books each week to motivate children to enjoy reading and writing. Educational creative writing topics we focus on are: persuasive writing, descriptive writing, building your introductions and conclusions, character development, and organising/planning your story.


Parent & Kid Approved

Parents appreciate that our classes are not only a proven method to increase reading confidence and writing skills for their children, but as an extension to help build on existing skills. Workshops are creative and involve fun games, audio and visual clips, technology, and more to keep students motivated.

Welcome to Leap into Literacy!

Leap into Literacy was established after Allison’s PhD research found that reading comprehension levels in Australia are declining each year. After teaching creative writing classes to adults, she wanted to put together a fun program to help both struggling and confident children with their reading comprehension AND creative writing skills.

Leap into Literacy’s goal is to instil a lifelong love of reading and writing for all students, and to help extend those children who may need additional assistance in these areas. Classes are fun and are NOT based on individual students completing worksheets; this means that kids are more motivated to learn and retain the information for life. Creative techniques and technology are used in small groups with one-on-one assistance during classes. Our literacy program fosters kids’ independent learning for confidence and success.

Parents have said they are so happy to see their children enjoy reading and writing for pleasure! Students who are already avid readers and writers have also benefited greatly as they are challenged in ways that they may not be in the traditional classroom.

How it Works

The first thing to do is to organise a FREE TRIAL CLASS to see if your child enjoys the lesson. There is NO point continuing if they are not having fun, as this is our overall goal for motivation, retention and success. Call or sign up now for a no-obligation trial class to introduce “Reading, Writing, & Creativity” to your child today!



Classes are available for children in years K-6.

Our tutoring centres are located in Drummoyne and Balmain in Sydney’s Inner West and North Willoughby.
