She joined L'ATTITUDE in 2022 and is currently pursuing an Economics degree at university.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

"Dear Liza,

Thank you for being a truly outstanding teacher! Thank you for the priceless impact you have made in Zhi Han...from being someone who had no confidence in writing to now being a confident writer! She is looking forward to a possible Sec 1 class with you!"

Yvonne, Mother of Zhi Han (AL1 in English - PSLE 2022)

Having been in L'Attitude since Primary 1, I can attest to the fact that Teacher Liza and the other teachers have greatly impacted my English skills. Her teaching methods are extremely beneficial, especially when it comes to Rules (of grammar and synthesis). All the tips and tricks she gave definitely stuck with me throughout my whole primary school life. With lots of help and encouragement from her and her staff at L'Attitude, I was able to attain an AL1 for English for my PSLE (2022).

Audrey

I joined L'Attitude in 2022 when I was in P6, and started seeing an improvement in my English results within a few months. Ms Liza is a very inspiring teacher who is able to motivate me to do my best while at the same time, impart important language skills to me. My composition saw the biggest improvement! In addition, Ms Liza made the lessons very interesting and I would look forward to it every week! Thanks Ms Liza! Appreciate all your guidance and mental support!

Entinne, AL1 in English (PSLE 2022)

“Liza has taught my four children, the oldest being twenty-seven. 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!”

Angela Chong

“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.”

Aida Kurniawan

"Liza is indeed a teaching maestro who is able to encourage, teach and transform children of all abilities. I sent all three of my children to her, each child with a very different set of learning challenges. She was able to bring out the best in each of them as Liza does not have a one-size-fits-all method. Instead, she saw each child as an individual, working in the child’s best-fit style. Despite their challenges, my older two children got A* for English at PSLE and my youngest got AL1 for English at PSLE. Beyond the PSLE, the foundation laid by Liza in English gave my children the necessary tools to excel even as they pursue their IGCSE, consistently achieving results that surpass our expectations."

Geraldine

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.

Charlotte Yeo, A* for English

"Liza, 
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."

Gin Cheong, Mother of Angela (AL1 For English - PSLE 2020)

"Hello Teacher Liza!

 

It's been simply AGES since I last saw you! I'm missing you and the L'Attitude lessons dreadfully. I also seem to have forgotten most of my English. (What's a pronoun again?) I'm enjoying secondary school - although, again, I wish that you taught Secondary 1 students.

 

I'll come along with my mom and visit you one of these days when she's picking Lucas or Samantha up from L'Attitude. I'm looking forward to seeing you again.

 

Love,

Nat

 

It's always so much fun learning at L'Attitude,

Especially when I'm being taught by you!

 

This is a couplet I made up. Yeah, yeah, I know, you already knew that.

 

L: Loving

I: Ingenious

Z: Zealous

A: Amazing (and attractive HAHA)

 

Liza is THE BEST!"
