Miss Lizzie B

I’m an experienced, qualified Primary School teacher with SEN and EAL experience, who has worked in KS1 and KS2 in schools in Birmingham and Bristol. I currently work as a class teacher in year 4. I believe in a supportive approach, whereby I make sure that I get to know every child I work with and their individual interests, so that I can tailor learning to suit them. I work out where each child’s strengths and gaps in learning lie and then plan targeted and engaging lessons to support their individual needs. I am available for work either online or in person, and am more than happy to discuss your individual needs and requirements.
