Welcome to studyphonics.com! I am honored that you are visiting! My goal is to teach you how to better teach others how to read English. I have written a 100+ page book, AND created a set of flashcards that is posted on this website. Click on the “Book” tab to view, read, and print the PDF of the book and the flashcards.
The MAIN reason I am going to all the effort to create a website, write a book, and eventually create YouTube videos is to spread awareness of TRUE phonics principles as well as how to teach people how to read. Many of these ideas were lost over a hundred years ago, and some of them I have thought of myself (ex: the “Consonant-Vowel Spectrum.) Many things that I will teach are common knowledge. But, everybody knows different things, so I am hoping to combine everything YOU need to know to teach someone else how to read.
I have a B.S. degree in geology. I am not a “reading expert.” I do not have any reading certifications from any university. Consider my book and flashcards as “free advice from a friend.” I have 9 children, and I have been teaching kids to read for about 15 years, now. I have also done extensive research into the subject of teaching kids how to read, in my spare time. Everything on my website is free for anyone to use. Since it’s free, you aren’t out any money if you don’t like my book or flashcards. However, I hope that you will find something I say to be helpful for you.
