Ms. Khushbu Porwal founded Phonics Essentials in the year 2012, with a vision to teach English using a multi-sensory, child-centered & scientific approach.

Our quest for an effective english reading program that has an easy, systematic & fun-filled approach led us to Jolly Phonics & Grammar, which is a comprehensive program for reading, writing, spelling, grammar, punctuation, comprehension & creative writing.

At Phonics Essentials, we provide Certified Training to Pre-School & Primary Teachers, conduct workshop for parents, and provide curriculum consultancy to schools. We also offer Phonics classes to kids in Preschool Years (ages 3-7 years) and English Grammar classes (7-10 years),

She is considered to be the key contributor in teaching Systematic and synthetic Phonics in various schools in Singapore. During her initial years in teaching, she realized that most children, irrespective of urban or rural backgrounds, had difficulty in reading English which led to milestone delays in their academics.

Hence, she strongly believes that anyone, regardless of age or background, should be allowed to learn to read.
