Lisa Adele - Montessori teacher who helps parents teach letter sounds and phonics at home.

Hi, I’m Lisa! I'm the Montessori teacher who takes the guesswork out of teaching phonics at home.


As a Montessori teacher (Association Montessori Internationale AMI Primary diploma), I’ve helped 3 and 4 year old children learn letter sounds in a way that feels easy and fun. Many of those children started reading before they turned 5 years old!

I've noticed lots of parents posting in Facebook groups about their struggles to teach letter sounds and reading.


Many parents are following a “letter of the week” curriculum without knowing that it’s an outdated approach to learning letters. 

Then they feel stuck when their child knows the alphabet but isn't able to blend letter sounds to read simple words like cat or pig.

I’d love to show you how to use Montessori activities so that learning to read is a joyful process of discovery for your child.


Helping your preschooler learn to read at home is actually pretty straightforward when you have a clear plan to follow with a mentor to support you along the way!

That's why I created my step-by-step phonics program based on my Montessori training and experience in the classroom.

Inside The Playful Path to Reading™ I’ll teach you how to help your preschooler learn to read in a way that’s playful and child-led.


Imagine how relaxed you’ll feel when you have a step-by-step plan to follow with ongoing guidance and support.

As a result, you’ll feel confident about getting started and going at your child’s own pace.

You’ll finally feel reassured that you’re doing everything possible to help your preschooler learn to read easily!


“After taking the course, I felt more empowered to teach my children phonics. Having a path to follow makes it clearer for me and helps me free space for other important things."

“I was so blown away by how well thought out the program is. Lisa is wonderful and answered all our questions so thoroughly.”

"My daughter is newly 3. It's a wonderful, slow and simple guide to teaching language. We play letter sound games many times a day, bringing awareness to the beginning sounds of words. She's getting it!”

— Megan W.
