Jan Polkinghorne

Adelaide, South Australia
Jan Polkinghorne has over 50 years teaching experience in both primary classrooms and tutoring children with specific learning difficulties and provides training in Jolly Phonics and Jolly Grammar. She is aware of research into Jolly Phonics and Jolly Grammar that demonstrates repeatedly the raising standards of reading and spelling. After retiring as Jolly Phonics Trainer for SPELD SA (Special Learning Difficulties Association), Jan has reduced her workload but still gives some training sessions.

Jan is willing to travel anywhere in Australia, really enjoys “off the beaten track” and has considerable experience working with indigenous schools. Happy to work with either small ‘in school’ groups or large regional trainings.
