Ruth Miskin

When I was the Head Teacher of a primary school, I saw my key role as making sure that every child learnt to read and write fast.

Ruth Miskin is one of the UK's leading authorities on teaching children to read. She has many years' experience as a Teacher, Head Teacher, Teacher-Trainer and Consultant in synthetic phonics, working with primary and secondary schools throughout the UK and with children from all backgrounds.

Over the last ten years, all her time has been devoted to developing a programme called Read Write Inc. Her belief that every child can, and must, learn to read is at the heart of this programme.

Ruth believes that the more quickly children learn to read, the more they want to read and the more they understand; and the less they struggle with spelling, the more capacity they have for writing what they want to say.

Ruth has developed Read Write Inc. directly out of her teaching experience and it is deeply rooted in the best classroom practice of what actually works for every child.
