Miss Lizzie W

Hello, my name is Lizzie and I am an enthusiastic primary teacher with experience in both KS1 and KS2. I have been teaching for 4 years and have 3 years tutoring experience. I got into teaching after working in homeless shelters and coaching young people through challenging times. It was through mentoring GCSE students that i decided to embark on a career in teaching and have never looked back. I believe every child should feel success in every lesson and enjoy any content delivered. Boosting children's confidence with positive praise and ensuring learning is fun and purposeful are personal strengths. I break learning into smaller steps, use modelling strategies and ensure children recall and retrieve prior knowledge so it is stored in the long term memory. I cover all primary national curriculum subjects and specialise in English, Maths and Reading.
