Suzanne Elizabeth KiddI have been a Muslim since the year 2000 Masha-Allah and I qualified as a primary school teacher in 2002. For the past 7 years I have worked as a primary school teacher in a muslim school. I am currently working as a Special Educational Needs teacher. Through my degree, further training and work experience I have gained a great insight into how children learn.
In 2009 I set up the Special Educational Needs Department at Manchester Muslim Prep School, one of the leading North West Muslim schools, and taught as a special needs teacher and co-ordinator for a further 3 years.
I studied with Al Manhal, a UK based organisation which teaches tajweed and after passing my exam through the The Jordanian institute 'The Society of the Conservation of the Quran' and it is through Allah's mercy that I have been given this opportunity to apply what I have learnt into teaching children tajweed.

The teacher's book has ready made lesson plans with great teaching ideas and easy to follow instructions. It begins by teaching children where each letter of the alphabet is pronounced from (mukhaarij), then follows through to the different tajweed rules, offering children a strong foundation and detailed knowledge of tajweed.
The pupil's books have corresponding worksheets for each lesson that is taught. The worksheets are child friendly and easy to understand. This website also provides a child friendly audio/visual support for each lesson.
