WHAT ARE THE TOP 3 BENEFITS

ENJOYED BY THOUSANDS OF QUICKFIX PHONICS STUDENTS?

Rapid

Super-quick results whereby students can be reading simple books within a week

Smart

A systematic method that provides the essence of phonics and decoding

Easy

Video lessons show the parent exactly what to do, easy to follow

WHY DOES IT WORK SO FAST

AND WHY IS IT DIFFERENT FROM OTHER OFFERS ON THE MARKET?

Versatile

You don’t need to learn a set of words for each phonics sound (not all the sounds are taught) we use pseudo words. (If you can read any “sound” you can read any word).

Segmented

We offer unique methods for blending and segmenting which is where most people get stuck even after learning all the sounds.

Motivating

Children get an immediate confidence boost because of the fast results and develop intrinsic motivation. I would relate this feeling to “levelling up/gaining skills” in a video game.

"It takes less time for me to prepare for dictation and I can use words in writing sentences. I can also tell the differences and similarities in the sounds of a word when spoken."

I like to help the underdogs and see the smiles on their faces when they succeed.

I like discovering “diamonds in the rough” and making them shine.

Zoie-Way

Hey There,

My name is Zoie Way, a writer, lecturer, mum-preneur and an enthusiastic English teacher dedicated to transforming the way students learn, grow and succeed in our modern era.

As the co-founder of The Maelan Way and creator of the Quick Fix Phonics program, my personal teaching journey began over 20-years ago, and although I absolutely love what I do now, it wasn’t the future I had always envisioned.

Teaching wasn’t in my initial gameplan. I worked in healthcare management, spending most of my days managing medical practices and setting up new clinics from the ground-up. I had worked with general practitioners, various specialists, psychological mental health practitioners, and radiologists, but never children. At that time, I decided to start a part time teaching job, and I began to see the pure joy within the hearts of kids. Their innocence, curiosity and exuberance towards life inspired me. But as much as I discovered their playfulness, I had also discovered their suffering. Local schools in Asia are very good with rote learning, but the kids who don’t perform optimally under these conditions are treated like underdogs.

Misunderstood, neglected and disconnected from their learning power, I didn’t see underdogs, I saw diamonds in the rough. This is what led me to the phonics reading program. Born out of pure urgency, my phonics program began to boost their confidence, uplift their spirits and nurture the potential within every diamond in the rough.

I had realized, instead of focusing on adults, I could help develop kids, creating a healthy and supportive space for them to thrive. Cue The Maelan Way – Quick Fix Phonics: an unconventional yet highly effective phonic program that empowers students, of all ages, to learn quickly, grow abundantly and experience a truly progressive, fulfilling learning journey.

Driven to create future change in our world, I hope my company and my unique teaching methods continue to impact the lives and hearts of underdogs, always.

“In February of this year, the eldest daughter participated in Zoie’s 4-day English pinyin course. Zoie was very dedicated and devoted to improving her daughter’s English pinyin. In addition, she only reads 5 vocabulary exercises every day and Zoie quickly responded and encouraged her. She also participates in story telling, 15 minutes a night, she learns interesting English without pressure.

Worth recommending!”

“Speaking exams in school used to be the most difficult part because students are required to read aloud a passage that they have never seen before. The phonics method made my life much easier as I never have to guess the pronunciation anymore.”

The 3rd person dialogue and narration is fun, and I find the pictures are quite amusing too. What can be better than laughing and learning at the same time?

Thank you!!!”

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. Does your course teach all the phonic sounds?

No, it doesn’t, that’s because we want the child to start reading books as soon as possible! In our experience, the students that came to us were already burnt out from countless phonics lessons and worksheets, and they had low confidence and were not interested in reading and writing.
Many parents have a misconception that more phonics lessons mean better reading. Still, from what we observed over the past 20 years, more practice actually reading books results in improved reading ability and establishes a healthy reading habit.

2. Does your course teach sight words (tricky sounds)?

Tricky words are challenging to learn AND explain. When introduced early on in the reading journey, it can lead to stress and frustration. Eventually, the child or the parent gives up and just hopes for the best.

Our course is designed to provide both the parent and child a positive experience to stay motivated and learn. All tricky and sight words are acquired naturally by noticing while reading!

I found that it’s much more enjoyable and effective as the child is the one that becomes proactive. When learning is initiated by the child, information is retained much more quickly

3. Does your course work for older children?

For older students aged 8 up to 16 who are still reading below grade level, this course will fast track them to catch up to grade level,

Progress can be made quickly because our course focuses on teaching a decoding system that consists of a unique blending and segmenting method. Instead of doing hundreds of worksheets to memorize over 30-word families, our course allows you to apply the system to read books straight away.

This approach makes learning to read much more enjoyable because a clear purpose is established, so the experience becomes more meaningful for the child.

4. Will your course require a lot my time?

As a parent myself, I understand how multiple kids or a job can leave little time to support your child’s needs. Our course incorporates Mikro Lessons™, short 5-15 minute instruction videos paired with 10-15 minutes of play or practise time daily. We’ve kept the explaining to the minimum so you can actually spend more time doing!

The course is online, so you can learn any time, any place. Practice while grocery shopping by reading cereal boxes, food labels and signs.
