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.

Mahy Kavei

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.

Hannah Waterfield

I am an English teacher at LWS. My passion and joy of reading and writing led me to complete a degree in English Literature at Liverpool John Moore's University. After graduating in 2018, I started my secondary teacher training in Brighton, with the intention of sharing this passion. I have worked primarily in large academy schools. I now teach years 1-9 English at LWS and want to help students understand and celebrate the power of words.

I am a French native and I have lived in the UK for over 20 years and I now have dual nationalities.  Before coming to LWS, I taught French for 2 years in a Secondary Academy in Newham where I tried using language as a way of empowering children from all backgrounds.

I completed a Master in Art and Design at the University of the Arts in London in 2008, then a PGCE teaching French and Spanish at Goldsmiths university.   I prepare students for their GCSE exams early on, try to make my lessons culturally interesting and work with children to speak the target language in every lessons.

Teresa Herrera Sanchez

I am Teresa, the Spanish teacher here at LWS. I qualified as a Teacher, and Speech and Language Therapist in 2012, from the Catholic University of Valencia in Spain. I have been working as a teacher in the UK since 2020, when I moved to London. I joined LWS in 2022 as the Spanish teacher, working along both lower and upper school, from year 1 to year 11. This gives me a great overview of everyone's needs. I really believe that education is the most important tool that we have to make this a better world. As a teacher, I'm delighted to have the chance to create impact in the next generation. Transmitting human values as respect, kindness and responsibility, is something that I find essential in society. At Lloyd Williamson School, as a Spanish teacher, I can also show the students this beautiful language, my mother tongue and the importance of learning about other cultures such as mine. In my lessons I use different resources that make them fun, engaging and instructive. My goal as a teacher is not just teaching them the knowledge of a new language, but also to make them realise how important and useful this tool is, how a good knowledge and understanding of the world can break borders and how enriching this can be.

Sarah Ali

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.
