Availability: I AM CURRENTLY FULL - NO SESSION TIMES AVAILABLE.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: I have taught nationwide in the UK for over twenty years in various posts, including the role of Head of English, and Whole School Literacy Coordinator, mainly in high schools (11-18), but I also have experience of teaching in the primary sector and colleges of further education. I am an expert in my subject areas of English, Literature, Linguistics, Psychology & Drama. I have many years experience as an examiner of GCSE English Literature and I have examined A level English Language, and KS3 SATs when they were in operation. I teach English and Psychology at all levels, ages 5 to 105 . I achieved GBC with my MSc allowing me membership of The British Psychological Society (BPS). I am a qualified TEFL teacher ( Teaching English as a Foreign Language - 120 Hours cert. ) and currently teach students worldwide online, of all ages, and ability. I have also successfully home schooled my son from age 7 to 16, including IGCSEs in English Language, Literature, Maths, Geography, Chemistry, Physics and Biology.
I use my expertise and experience of over twenty years, which has given me a very strong platform from which to teach, to maximise the potential of every student. I believe learning should be fun, and am passionate about helping students to achieve the highest level, whilst allowing a true appreciation of their chosen subject. I use an individualised and innovative approach, often exploiting my Drama skills to allow all learning styles to be accommodated. My students have always achieved their predicted grades, with many exceeding expectation. An A level English Language student of mine once achieved the highest mark in the UK on one particular paper of her chosen exam board.
I find online tuition extremely effective, as it allows a relaxed and safe environment providing the ideal learning experience. I enjoy the privilege of helping all students succeed, and realise their ambitions. If you wish to discuss anything further please contact me and I will endeavour to accommodate you.

Feedback For Elizabeth (5)
My son has only had a few lessons with Elizabeth but he is gaining confidence with every lesson. He was really struggling with English Language but not only is his handwriting improving he seems to be understanding the subject better. Elizabeth has a natural rapport with my son, they are not only teacher/student they are friends too.
Lizzie is very efficient, and makes the most of the time on the video call. She will tailor the session very much around the needs of the student. Great at providing hints on exam technique, sets achievable homework which is always marked quickly with helpful comments. This tutor comes highly recommended by this student
She`s been a wonderful tutor for me, her enthusiasm and great knowledge helped me confidently prepare for my English exams. I really enjoy her teaching techniques as she clearly describes things and is encouraging, she`s very nice and I`d definitely recommend!
Elizabeth`s friendly approach has helped my daughter gain confidence and enjoy studying English again, a subject she found challenging. She is seeing an improvement in her comprehension resulting in higher marks on her test papers.
Lizzie is an amazing tutor, I couldn`t recommend her highly enough. Every lesson, Lizzie creates a powerpoint lesson bespoke to my requirements. I am an adult learner looking to improve my written English. My learning has plateaued since I left Uni and my requirements were different to your average student. However, Lizzie has excelled at creating an enjoyable lesson plan, which revolves around my needs.
