About Christine Blance
Christine Blance is a Specialist OG-trained Dyslexia Tutor who is now teaching on Zoom to pupils worldwide. She is passionate about taking students struggling with reading and spelling and raising them to levels so they can achieve potentials that were never thought possible. After many years of teaching in Secondary Schools, she is a biology graduate who was inspired by one of her first dyslexic students to specialize in this condition. After a year's training and gaining a British Dyslexia Institute Diploma, she returned to teaching in schools and began her own tutorial business where pupils of all ages came to the classroom in her home.
She has compiled an extremely effective teaching program incorporating mnemonic chants and phonic flashcards. The mnemonic chants are unique to her. The phonic flashcards are based on the Orton Gillingham method, which Christine was trained in. The associated structured worksheets are her creation. The entire teaching program is available on a memory stick and can be purchased on her website. The mnemonic chants have been published in a series of books called Spelling Success. All are on sale from Christine's website.
