Lisa Worthington

Lis joined the ReadingWise team in April 2024, bringing extensive experience in education and business development. Her journey began in Indonesia where she volunteered to teach English to local children, an initiative that would later become Sekolah BISA, a school that continues to benefit young learners.

After high school, Lis harnessed her passion for teaching and her TEFL qualification to teach English as a second language to pupils in China. These early experiences highlighted the critical role of phonics and decoding for young readers, setting the stage for her future role at ReadingWise.

She then pursued a degree in Politics at the University of York, balancing her studies with jobs teaching rowing and fundraising for university bursaries and cementing her commitment to education and helping others, values she wanted to integrate into her career.

Following university, Lis spent three years in India working on furniture product development, gaining experience in production planning, product development, and quality control before transitioning into a Partnerships Manager role working with retailers such as John Lewis and Next.

At ReadingWise, Lis leverages her diverse background in education and business development to expand our reach and impact on schools and emerging readers.
