The A.R.R.O.W. Foundation
The A.R.R.O.W. Foundation is a non-profit organisation.
It focuses on developing literacy skills for children who need it the most, through the use of the highly effective A.R.R.O.W. Literacy programme. With the generous help of our sponsors, the programme has helped thousands of students in over 200 schools across Trinidad and Tobago.
There is a global concern of large populations of children missing the opportunity in reaching their full potential. Left unchanged, society will continue to develop and persist in high crime figures, growing poverty and a lack of skilled employment.
A.R.R.O.W. has been known to alter neural processes of students, particularly with references to internalising skills. The self reinforcing response of students undertaking A.R.R.O.W. promotes motivation and interest with resulting increases in attention and self esteem. Every aspect of the A.R.R.O.W. technique has been designed to connect and strengthen wiring in the brain that significantly changes and improves auditory skills, short term memory, and the overall learning ability as well as those areas already mentioned.
Children have gone on to become highly successful learners after using the A.R.R.O.W. Learning system despite previous reluctance to reading, learning, plummeting low self-esteem and behavioural problems.

A.R.R.O.W. Private Tuition
At our office located in Port of Spain, we provide the eight-hour A.R.R.O.W. Programme managed by fully trained A.R.R.O.W. Tutors. We begin with assessments that will provide us with the reading and spelling stage of each student.They will then be put onto the self-voice multi-sensory programme at his or her level for progression.
Initially guided by the tutor, students will soon be able to navigate their own way on the programme, hence taking control of their own learning, as tutors remain present and readily available to assist the student when needed throughout the session. Each session is one hour, and it is recommended that an hour per day - from anything from one day to six days per week - is maintained until the completion of the programme.
When the eight hours have been completed, final assessments will be given to the student to establish their progress in reading and spelling. If recommended, additional programmes can be continued.
As a result of the restrictions imposed by the pandemic, we have been able to temporarily adjust the way tutors support students on the A.R.R.O.W. programme, so that it an be undertaken remotely, through the use of online video and telephone calls.
