Liza is an Arts and Social Science (Mass Communication and Sociology) graduate from the National University of Singapore and a qualified childcare professional in the state of California, having completed her Basic and Advanced Certificate in Early Childhood Management from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA Extension). She has been teaching English to primary school students and international school students for the past 13 years and runs L'Attitude, a tuition and enrichment centre for developing English language and literacy skills.
In addition, Liza is the author of a series of primary school composition and creative writing companion books. Last June, she joined the ranks of the SPH English Masterclass speakers, conducting seminars on how to help Primary 5 and 6 students navigate the PSLE English syllabus. Liza has just launched her latest book "Excel in PSLE English : A smart study guide" to help parents and students navigate the PSLE English syllabus.
“Liza has taught my four children, the oldest being twenty. She offers a lot more than English tuition. She has been a mentor, a confidante and at times, a discipline mistress when necessary to all my children. They have all turned out to be eloquent and articulate, brimming with confidence and they have made their journey through primary school dotting their 'i's and crossing their 't's, speaking English properly. Many thanks to their English mum Liza who continues to inspire and allow them to realise their full potential not just in English but in LIFE!”
“Liza has been instrumental in the English language learning journeys of all my three children. I am very grateful not only because of her excellent tutelage enabling both my sons to achieve A* in English in their respective PSLE examinations but even more so because all three found a wise mentor and sensible counsellor in her. She holds them to a high standard both academically and in their conduct and out of deep respect for her, they rose to meet those standards. She holds a disciplined, methodical and fun approach to learning. I cannot recommend her highly enough.”
"Dear Aunty Liza,
Thank you for being my favourite teacher for three years! I don't know how you managed to put up with my nonsense. You have always been there, motivating me and telling me that I can do well. I can 100% guarantee that my vast improvement is because of you. Your lessons have always been filled with joy and laughter. I remember in P3, I was always terrified of you but now, I look forward to all your lessons. I can't believe today is the last one! I am going to miss you so much and I just want to thank you. You have been my pillar of strength and support. You are the best!"

“Both my children are happy beneficiaries of Liza's wonderful tutelage. She is passionate about the English language and that translates into the energy she brings into her classes. She is firm, and yet manages to engage the children, allowing them to build their foundation in the language naturally. Her devotion to each child prompts her to go the extra mile to find out ways in which to address specific difficulties that the child may face. Liza is also creative and enthusiastic, organising fun activities/programmes for the children post exams so that they can further explore the language in a more relaxed setting. She is an amazing teacher. ”

I cannot thank you enough for the tremendous impact you made on Angela. It's only been 8 short months but it's astronomical. You not only teach her English. You set her a very high standard and you guided her towards it. Through you, I see the potential of my (daughter) and through you, I learnt how I should be helping her move forward. The impact you had on Angela did not end yesterday; it will last a lifetime. Thank you very much Liza."
I started my journey with Teacher Liza in the middle of Primary 5. Back then, English was my worst subject. I was one of the worst in English in my class. There were times when I wondered if I could even smell my A* for the PSLE because no matter how hard I worked, my English grades continued to slip.
Just when all hope seemed lost, my mother introduced me to the best English teacher I have met in all my primary school years - none other than Teacher Liza. Teacher Liza is a different teacher. Most teachers would force knowledge down one's throat but she inspired learning. She made it a point to make sure we had a good laugh each session about the English language and that was something I looked forward to. She motivated me to work harder when I got a bit lazy sometimes and she gave me constant encouragement.
My composition marks improved from 31/40 to 36/40. Nearing the prelims, going to Teacher Liza was especially helpful because she would revise what we had learnt and enforce exam techniques such as how to answer an oral question. Through perseverance and grit, the impossible happened. I got an A* for my PSLE English exam! I would say this result is all attributed to Teacher Liza.
Teacher Liza, thank you for guiding me to achieve my dream.
Dear Teacher Liza,
Though I was a student of yours for about 8 months, your lessons have, by far, been the most enjoyable and effective classes I have even attended. I can guarantee that within these 8 months, my vast improvement is the result of your classes. While you can be strict at times, you are humorous when you joke around about out compositions and homework which can give us a good laugh. Thank you for guiding me towards the A* which I obtained in my PSLE and for your continuous encouragement throughout these short few months! I will definitely remember your help and I am very grateful. Thank you so much, Teacher Liza!
