Liz worked in our school with a group of Y5 children. She engaged the children in a cross-curricular writing/geography/history project. The teacher she worked with speaks very highly of her expertise, commitment and professionalism. The work she produced with the children was impressive.
I have no hesitation in recommending Liz to you.
Acting Headteacher, Fox Hill Primary School
Liz worked with our Y5 children during the spring of 2001. She was available to plan and construct the programme as part of the 'Writing Project', a Sheffield LEA initiative for gifted and talented pupils.
The teachers she worked with were impressed with her ideas and suggestions from the start. Each week Liz came prepared with materials and ideas to use with the whole class and always had extension ideas for the most able children.
After 5 weeks and 10 sessions our pupils were writing with confidence, expression and accuracy, and they enjoyed every minute of it! We have no hesitation in recommending Liz for any aspect of writing in schools.
