Hiring a coach is an excellent idea for any school or district that is committed to improving teaching and learning outcomes. Coaches provide a valuable outside perspective, offering guidance and support to teachers as they work to refine their practice. They can help teachers identify areas for improvement and develop strategies to address any challenges that arise. Additionally, coaches can help teachers stay up-to-date with the latest research and best practices in education, ensuring that they are using research-informed approaches to support student learning. With a coach’s guidance and support, teachers can develop their skills and confidence, and students can thrive. Hiring a coach is an investment in the future of your school, and one that is sure to pay dividends in the form of improved teaching and learning outcomes.


First, we talk.

We send a questionnaire/survey for leadership/staff that will help us to pinpoint short, medium and long-term goals
for the school or district. 
Prior to our consulting day/days, we would have a 30 minute Zoom call with leadership to outline the topics and format you wish to have. We then book a follow-up session to discuss implementation and next steps.
There are three main benefits of Lifelong Literacy coaching:


At least 30% off RRP on Spelling for Life, Language for Life and Reading for Life.


Whole school licences for 12 months, for any of the 20+ Lifelong Literacy online courses are discounted by 20%.


You can book Lyn for multiple consecutive days at a substantial discount. 


Lyn Stone

As an educational linguist with years of experience working in diverse school contexts both in Australia and abroad, Lyn brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the table. She has a proven track record of helping teachers improve their practice and achieve outstanding results with their students.

One of Lyn’s key strengths is her deep understanding of pedagogical principles. She is well-versed in cognitive load theory, which helps teachers design lessons that are optimally challenging for students, without overwhelming them. Lyn is also a proponent of explicit instruction, an evidence-based approach that involves breaking down complex concepts into smaller, more manageable steps, to support student learning.

Lyn has a keen understanding of the nature of literacy and language learning. As an instructional coach, she can help teachers develop strategies to support students who are struggling with reading, writing, and language acquisition. She can also work with teachers to design engaging, differentiated lessons that meet the needs of all learners in the classroom.
