Our Team

Kate Bertoncello - Founder/Director

Kate Bertoncello is the Founding Director of The Learning Creative, formerly known as the MSL Club Australia. Kate began her professional career as a musician before working her way into primary teaching, then setting up a private practice where she educates in structured literacy online on a weekly basis. 

Kate has completed further studies in Multisensory Structured Language (MSL) as well as Ron Yoshimoto’s Orton Gillingham course and numerous online courses in the areas of literacy difficulties. Attending conventions and professional learning opportunities in Melbourne and around Australia have been invaluable. 

The Learning Creative stemmed from Kate's desire to reduce the isolation that her son felt in his early schooling. She teamed up with Sarah Asome in 2016 to plan and implement the first camp in January 2017, which was a huge success!
