Phonics first made an impact on her life when she started teaching 13 years ago using the Jolly learning methodology, in the Early Years Section as a Teacher and later as a Section Head in an IGCSE school. She was amazed to see how the reading and writing ability of children grow rapidly by cracking the alphabetic code… how small sounds lead to big words by using the skill of blending to read and comprehend.

To pursue her passion of teaching and training, Hazel is willing to travel across India.
