“I’m so glad to have found Amber to be my daughter’s tutor. A very warm and lovely teacher, Amber has extensive expertise in teaching children how to read and write properly. Her unique way of teaching writing and vocabulary has enabled my daughter to develop her writing skills in a systematic way. With Amber’s wonderful guidance and support, my daughter’s writing has improved dramatically, and she has become such a confident writer capable of handling both persuasive and creative writings at a consistently high level for her age. Her enhanced writing skills have also helped her win a full scholarship to a prestigious school. I am sincerely thankful to Amber for all the support she has given to my daughter, without which my daughter would not have been able to achieve such an outstanding outcome. If you are eager to improve your child’s writing and vocabulary, I would strongly recommend you to send your child to Amber and I can assure you that you will not be disappointed.”
Jing – Year 6 parent


“Thank you Amber for working with my daughter to help her achieve a High Distinction in her ICAS writing exam, 1st in English in at a Sydney-based private school, 1st in a number of other subjects which also require essay writing and the overall Academic Prize awarded to the top 2 students in the year.”
Marina – Parent of a Year 8 child


“I can clearly see the impact Amber has had on our kids these past 6 months. I highly recommend Amber’s incredibly detailed and technical writing course, the school holiday workshops or private tuition. The way Amber teaches is not like your typical teacher. She is passionate, detailed, and extremely knowledgeable and will inspire and engage your child like no other. Our kids always leave her buzzing with ideas and inspiration. Thank you so much Amber for bringing out the very best in our children. I’m thrilled we have found such a high level of teaching support for our kids now in primary and well into high school.”  
Ray – Parent of Year 4 and 5 children

GymbaROO Ryde 

GymbaROO Ryde 

GymbaROO offers fun educational programs that have been researched for over 30 years to enhance the development of essential motor skills in children and to inform parents of the importance of early childhood development to health, learning and behaviour. The programs are led by trained teachers with specialised equipment and activities to stimulate your child’s physical, psychological and social development.

Best of all, GymbaROO is lots of fun! Children love it and parents love it! Grandparents love it too! There is nothing quite as rewarding as being actively involved in a child’s development – watch them brighten with excitement, participate with enthusiasm and help them experience the joy of learning. Children can dance, sing, climb, swing, tumble and spin their way to a healthy brain and body in readiness for later learning.

Some features of GymbaROO

  • Age-appropriate sessions, from 6 weeks to 5 years
  • Research-based programs involving both the children and their carers in a safe and fun environment
  • GymbaROO trained and professionally qualified instructors
  • Specialised equipment, exercise, music, dance, massage
  • Weekly 45-60 minutes sessions, parent handouts and home activities.
Why GymbaROO?

GymbaROO will assist your child to reach their full potential. At GymbaROO you will learn lots of insights into early childhood development, and have lots of fun with this structured program that lays solid foundations for school years.

Organic, natural development is a thing of the past. “Natural development” no longer occurs in today’s modern society. Children’s key opportunity to move are now limited due to:

  • Less open space to explore and move around in
  • Safety/Litigation concerns
  • Parks with equipment that does not spin, sway or rock
  • Lack of tummy time with infants
  • Children spending additional time in car seats, capsules, prams, and many baby toys that don’t allow the child to move freely
  • Increased screen time – mobile phones, computers, tablets, PlayStations, etc
  • Changes in food – more adulterated with additives and more processed

All of these hamper the development of our children.

Just ask around, GymbaROO is highly recommended by many health professionals including Paediatricians, Maternal Health Nurses, Occupational Therapist, Physiotherapists, Paediatric Osteopaths and Paediatric Chiropractors.

GymbaROO is a 5-year program

The GymbaROO program is designed to assist brain development from birth through to reading and writing. It is sequential, from 6 weeks of age, right through to starting school. Occasionally parents say: ‘we have done GymbaROO’, and they have not understood that they have only completed a tiny part of the program. They have only stimulated the part of the brain that was age-appropriate at the time. It is like building a house from the foundations, and if any part of the house has gaps, there can be problems.
