Jenny Allen is a country girl who was educated at Kingston CAE and Melbourne University. Jenny spent twenty-six years in Early Childhood Education with the Kindergarten Union, the Children’s Services Office and the Education Department. Positions included pre-school teacher, Pre-school Director of both kindergartens and an integrated services centre for five years, District Coordinator and a variety of acting roles including Regional Director, and Director of the Lady Gowrie Child Centre.
Jenny and her husband Ron Yates established Master Coaching in 2001, which then became REM+ Tuition after breaking away from the franchised system.
Jenny soon recognised the need to teach dyslexic children to read in a different way to book-based reading programs, and therefore undertook the Three Levels of Teaching Students With Dyslexia. Aside from her role as Manager/Director of REM+ Tuition, her work with students consists of teaching children using the Hickey Method, and reading assessments.
Why I teach at REM+ Tuition
I am driven because I want to change the literacy opportunities and learning outcomes for as many children in South Australian schools as possible. I love that I have the privilege of being able to make a profound difference to the lives of all the students I teach.
When I am not working you will find me…
Travelling, cooking, bush walking, spoiling my family, reading, learning and continually improving myself as a person.
