Information about Lisa

I have been teaching for 17 years. I currently work in a Junior school where I have been based for the last seven years, so I am up to date with ongoing changes in the curriculum, familiar with targets and assessing work and confident when planning programmes of work for children to move on with their understanding. I support children with English in particular although I do offer tuition in Mathematics from Key Stage 1- lower secondary key stage 3. I aim to improve the child`s confidence so that when they are back in the classroom, they are clear about their learning and have the skills to complete tasks.I support `gaps` in understanding and help children to organise themselves. I provide all the materials that the child needs for the lessons - all they need to bring is themselves and a positive attitude!
Although I trained at Oxford, I have worked in a range of different areas. I have worked in multicultural schools in Birmingham and Crawley. I have also worked in inner city schools in Portsmouth. At my present school, I have been `Head of Year`and have recently completed management courses. I am also the manager of English across the Curriculum within the school. I have two children of my own, who are currently going through the schooling system - both now in Key Stage 3.
I have worked with students retaking GCSE English - from a number of different syllabuses. All my lessons are on a one to one basis so that I can provide quality support to each client. I am also registered as a tutor with Portsmouth City Council and registered with `Teaching Personnel` supply agency for Hampshire as a tutor working with children one to one in schools.
This summer, I am hosting international students for the first time in my home. They are spending a couple of weeks with me on an intensive English course as I am also registered with `LivingLearningEnglish`.Over the coming year I am hoping to embark on my MA degree which will centre heavily around language usage and the derivation of language.I obviously have too much time on my hands!

Availability: I am available every evening - I run hourly slots between 4-9pm. I am also available weekends and holidays. At present (March 2015) I only have spaces between 8-9pm for week days, and spaces 4-6pm on Saturdays. After May, I will have far more flexibility, once the current Year 11s have finished their GCSEs. So if you are thinking of using me, please bear this in mind.

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: I have tutored also for 17 years - most students who start with me remain with me up to GCSE level. References are available upon request and my CRB is held with my present school.

Lisa is excellent and has a very friendly approach to her teaching, which my daughter looks forward to the lessons every week. She has made a good progress in her class and with the school homework.

Lisa is a great teacher, enthusiastic, patient and very helpful. What is the most important, she is able to adapt her teaching strategies to student needs. We appreciate her work:)

My son began receiving tuition from Lisa last Oct 2014 as he was not expected to achieve a C grade in his English GCSE`s. She made the subject much more understandable and "boy friendly". She is very friendly , patient,thoughtful and caring and my son became a lot more confident in writing essays and answering exam questions. He achieved C grades in both literature and language this summer and without Lisas help I doubt this would have happened .

Katie feels very relaxed with Lisa and has begun to feel more confident in her studies with English. She has begun to complete English papers and is improving.
