The Director

LYNELLE CAMPBELLFounder| Director| Education Consultant - LYNZ Education
Lynelle Campbell has been an educator for over 30 years. She originally started teaching in a multi-grade rural primary classroom teaching students in Years 3-6. There she learned that there was still more to learn about how to teach to meet all the needs of the range of students in her class, so she decided to continue her studies.

Lynelle completed a Graduate Diploma in Special Education which launched her into a career assisting students with learning difficulties and a wide range of additional needs in both mainstream and special education settings.
Lynelle spent 12 years as a Learning Support Coordinator in Year 1-12 schools supporting teachers to manage the literacy and numeracy needs of the students in their classes as well as supporting students with intensive intervention support in Literacy and Numeracy. She continued her studies in a Masters of Special Education and specialised further with a Research Masters in Numeracy and Number Sense. Her passion for helping students with strategies that work to stop the struggle in Maths led her to become a numeracy consultant for independent schools in NSW. She then launched her own education company to provide support to teachers and schools in the public, independent and catholic sectors of Australia and beyond.
Lynelle’s goal for Lynz Education is to help ALL students have the chance to leave school numerate and to enjoy their mathematics lessons along the way. Her priority is to support any school and any teacher who wants to improve their Numeracy Instruction. Lynelle doesn’t believe there are those who can and those who can’t learn maths.

There are well-researched ways to teach maths so that ALL students can learn. Lynelle likes to take the research and make it practical, useful and easy for teachers to apply in their classrooms.

Here’s What School Leaders Have Said About Lynz Education…

I am delighted to write a testimonial on behalf of Lynelle Campbell and her work with staff and students at my school. At all times I have found Lynelle to be extremely professional, thorough and dedicated. Lynelle is an expert in her field and has the ability to easily communicate and share her knowledge with staff.
Lynelle’s ongoing consultancy made a positive difference to our staff in how to assess and monitor student’s growth and development in number sense.
Lynelle’s expertise in this area made an enormous difference to my staff in their understanding of student needs and the explicit teaching of number sense significantly contributed to students’ improved results in mathematics. I am very much looking forward to Lynelle providing consultancy support to the staff at my new school.

Dean Smith, Head of Primary, William Clarke College, Kellyville, Sydney, NSW

Our College has been using Lynelle for over three years in supporting our K-6 staff in understanding how to teach numeracy to the students in an effective manner.  Over this time, they have been kicking goals every year, in their knowledge of how to get the best out of the students and how to grow their own understanding of teaching numeracy and number sense.  We have enjoyed the relationship with Lynelle, as well as the professional manner in which she has worked with all the staff.
