Information about Lizzie

I love getting my students smashing through all their exams, challenges, and mental blocks!
By assessing your thought processes as we progress through your programme, I am able to tailor my teaching style to your individual needs and help you reach your full potential. With the right guide, you can achieve excellence.

Experience: I`ve been tutoring and teaching for over 10 years, to students from age 6 to adult, including Linguistics to degree level (syntax, morphology, phonology, sociolinguistics), as well as Maths, English as a Second Language, English Literature, German, Swahili, Drama, Dance, and 11+ preparation.

I have taught English as a Second Language at a university in Germany, and English, Maths and German in nursery, primary and secondary classrooms in Tanzania, Namibia, and the UK.

I`m fluent in Swahili, having lived in East Africa for 3 years and studied the language as a linguist, and have classroom teaching experience too.

I have specialist experience teaching adults for the UKVI IELTS exams and delivering basic IT training and administrative skills for businesses.

I have a first class BA in German and Linguistics from Queen Mary, University of London, where I was awarded six additional prizes for outstanding academic achievement and a two scholarships for additional courses.

I left school with three A Levels (AAB) in Biology, German and Maths, and two AS Levels (AC) in Further Maths and Psychology. At GCSE, I attained 6 A*s and 3 As, including English Language, English Literature, Maths and the three Sciences. I have maintained my knowledge in these subjects through regular teaching and can confidently teach them to at least GCSE level.

Lizzie is fantastic. She has been tutoring my daugher in maths (GSCE) for a few weeks now and I`m very grateful we found her. She is friendly and very capable and I can see my daughter`s self-confidence growing with every session. My daughter really works hard for her, which is great. Thank you Lizzie!

Finding Lizzie has been amazing. She is highly invested in the sessions and my daughter has found her very inspiring. Just wish I discovered her tutoring support a long time ago. The impact on my daughters self esteem has made every penny worth it. Lizzie knows the material and has worked with the guidelines of the exam board we are sitting the GCSE with. Absolutely amazing tutor.

My 12yr old daughter has started doing lessons with Lizzie during lockdown. I was concerned online lessons wouldn’t be as beneficial but Lizzie has a great way of engaging with our child and I don’t feel she’s missing out. Lizzie is very patient and has a great way of describing things. I would definitely want to continue beyond lockdown.

My daughter loves her tutor sessions with Lizzie, although still early days my daughter looks forward to her weekly session with Lizzie. Lizzie has taken the time to understand the best learning techniques to help my daughter to engage and excel. I would definitely recommend to family and friends.

Tutors Response :

Hi Crystal, thank you very much for your feedback. I`m so happy your daughter enjoys our lessons as much as I do! She brings such a delightful energy and inquisitiveness to our learning games, and her progress in both English and Maths has been absolutely incredible since we first met last year. You must be a very proud mum!
