I am a linguist and author who spends a lot of time thinking about reading and writing. My greatest joy is to work with children who struggle with literacy and basic maths.

I am a huge fan of evidence and research and will not use or promote a program or method that isn’t very best practice.

There are simply too many pitfalls for concerned parents, who want the best for their children, but find themselves navigating a maze of sciency-sounding programs and under-qualified practitioners.

Here is my training:






Introducing Vicky Savilleprofile 3 (2)_LI

Vicky is first and foremost a practitioner of sensitivity and intelligence. Her own dyslexic child led her on a path of discovery about the condition and after many hours of sitting in on his lessons and tireless advocacy at his school, Vicky has undertaken a path of training under Lyn’s close guidance.







I’m also not a fan of anecdotes and parent testimonials, but I love what I read in this email from the mother of one of the most brilliant, hardworking boys I’ve ever met:

Profile portrait of a handsome young boy“Thank you Lyn for giving us the gift of reading.

After two and a half years working with a team of professionals and tutors (including educational psychologists, speech and language pathologists, a dyslexia specialist and an audiologist) my son had made very little progress.

I was advised that his language and literacy challenges were complex and severe, and that I should prepare for a life of special accommodations.

After just three months of tutoring with you my son has made more progress than ever before, we both have renewed enthusiasm and optimism and, best of all, my son has begun to read!

I am incredibly grateful for the joy and hope you have given us.”
