A bit about me
I have always had a passion for working with children. After graduating from the University of York in 2010 with a 2.1 in Psychology, I packed up my bags and headed to France! I decided I wasn't quite ready to become a teacher yet, I wanted to spend some time travelling and learning new skills.
After two amazing years working with French families, I decided the time was right to start my teaching journey. In 2013, I began my Primary PGCE qualification at the University of Manchester. I then gained my Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) teaching in schools across Manchester. I started advertising for tutoring alongside my teaching job in order to earn some extra money to travel over the summer. I soon realised that I was actually really good at tutoring and this is what I wanted to do as a career.
In 2016, my first tutoring business was born - Didsbury Primary Tutor. Since then, my business has grown from strength to strength and in 2019 I rebranded as ‘Learn with Lisa’ following my move away from Didsbury.

"Lisa has been visiting our home to tutor my son in both maths and English for 12 months. She is great at highlighting the areas she feels he is weak in & tailors his lessons accordingly, using both written & practical teaching methods.
We have always found her to be approachable, flexible & professional. She brings an enthusiastic & friendly attitude to teaching & clearly enjoys her work, my son enjoys his lessons with Lisa & is making good progress in both subjects.
She also successfully coached my older son through his grammar school exams. I would definitely recommend Lisa as a tutor."
