I am an accredited Dyslexia-SPELD specialist literacy teacher with university qualifications in education and psychology. I have over 20 years teaching experience with a particular focus on working with students with literacy difficulties, including those with diagnosed dyslexia.

I provide a COMPREHENSIVE LITERACY assessment prior to establishing an individual, structured, phonic based, multi-sensory program that addresses each student's specific needs and areas of weakness.

Programs run for 12 to 30 weeks and re-testing shows that most students make significant improvements in their literacy skills. Students and their parents meet with me once a week for an hour and are then expected to complete a structured, follow-
up homework program to ensure the information taught is stored in long-term memory.

I am also able to offer specialist teaching over the internet and currently have students in Singapore and around Australia.

Experience

I have provided specialist one-on-one teaching in literacy for over 15 years. An
analysis of 50 consecutive students showed that the average time students spent with
me was 1 hour a week for 13 weeks and the average improvement in spelling was 1
year and just under 1 1/2 years in reading accuracy and comprehension. My goal is to
significantly improve students' literacy skills in a short time frame by providing them
with the underlying knowledge and skills required to be competent readers and spellers.

"Lillian was amazing with my daughter - when we first came to her, i was confused about what to do and how to help my daughter. Lillian had a wealth of knowledge and put together a program for us. She was patient, helpful and knowledgeable. My daughter responded positively to her immediately. My daughter is now sitting in bed at night reading novels and loves it. This was all made possible by the help from Lillian."
