I teach primary (KS2) science, and secondary (KS3/4) biology, maths and astronomy. I am also the class tutor for years 10 (Lower Hydras) and 11 (Upper Hydras). I started teaching at LWS in early 2019. I enjoy teaching and I am passionate about the subjects I teach. I believe that every child has a right to education, and this inspiredm e to start private tutoring few years ago to KS3 up to and including A-Level students. In my capacity as class tutor, I support my students to cope with schoolwork, daily pressure and give advice and guidance on how to keep up and do their best of their abilities to move forward. And as a full-time teacher, I find myself engaged with fellow teachers, keeping up to date with school policies and safeguarding children. I find the multicultural fusion amongst students and teachers in the school a beautiful replica of the mosaic life in cosmopolitan London.

I am a qualified teacher with an active life-long (for over 19 years) commitment to teaching as a Maths, Physics and Chemistry teacher.

Through years of experience, I have contributed throughout the whole process of the development of learning programs, including identifying individual learning needs through diagnostic assessments, the design of innovative and cooperative teaching/learning methods/material/handouts, lab preparation, integrating technology with learning activities, the design of various assessment methods, as well as helping individuals with tutoring and exam preparation.

I graduated with an MSc and BSc degree in the field of Physics, and further enhanced my teaching skills by attending various occupational training courses including AET, CET and DET courses.

I enjoy working for LWS, spending my time with students, learning new subjects and presenting them in the simplest possible language, in an interactive way via gamification to my learners.

Sarah Ali

Sarah Ali.jpeg

Hello! My name is Sarah and I am a primary school teacher at LWS, as well as the pastoral tutor for the Dragons and Unicorns class. I graduated from The University of Exeter and have recently completed my PGCE with Distinction at London Metropolitan University. 


Reflecting on my early education, I really cherish the memories I have of my primary school. My teachers were inspirational, kind, empathetic and strong. They encouraged me to use my voice and were instrumental in my life long love of literature. The skills and knowledge we acquire in our earliest educational settings have the power to inspire us to go on and achieve our dreams. Therefore. I am committed to creating a classroom atmosphere that is stimulating, supportive and encouraging for all. 


As a qualified Nutritional Therapist, I am passionate about the importance of good nutrition for children, as well as regular exercise and good quality sleep. Without these fundamentals, it is much more difficult for a child to reach their full potential at school. I hope to apply the knowledge and expertise I have gained in these areas to my career at LWS.
