Praises for the Fitzroy Method Introductory Course Live Workshop:

"A great day – intense but greatly informative. Gives a sense of ‘Yes – I can do this and do it well for my students.'"
R. H. (teacher),
Kuyper Christian School,
NSW, Australia

“As a parent (not trained teacher) I found the course informative and pitched at a comfortable level. Workbook in association with power points and Jeremy’s overview worked well together. I know there will be many parents who will be disappointed they missed out on this great opportunity.

“Thanks so much. We are already using the Fitzroy Readers at home (my daughter started school this year) and this has further clarified this wonderful program.”

Lexie Williams, parent.
