My tutoring approach
I believe that no one pupil is the same, so it is impossible to define a teaching method as it must be adapted to the needs of the student. From experience of being tutored myself, I know how frustrating it can be to be taught in a way that doesn't suit your thinking, so with each pupil I ask them how they learn and absorb information best. As a result I spend the first lesson going over what the pupil does not understand, and why, thus gaining an comprehension of how to explain it better. I also like to push the student to think beyond their boundaries, or the boundaries necessary to simply get the grade, as this is how exceptional thinking and a sense of achievement come about.
Tutoring experience: 3+ years
My most recent pupil was retaking his A-Level drama exam during his gap year. By working together for 6 week, we managed to bring his grade up from a U to a B, allowing him the chance of a university placement. Other pupils have ranged in age and ability from first years of GCSE to children for homework help.
My mother is and has always been a French teacher, so from a young age I was helping to look after and share responsibility for her classes. This included an after-school French club for children from the age of 4 to 11 years called Jeux D'Enfants and also helping organise and plan some private lessons.
At College and University I tutored the younger siblings of my close friends for their 11+ and GCSE and also held weekly Shakespeare study groups for my course. I have recently decided to become a teaching assistant for a secondary school in North London and am excited to tutor once more.

Jessica is a fantastic tutor, not only does Jessica help give you ideas she also give you a lot of confidence when you take the exam.
Jessica has been helping me in English for a few lessons now, and she has made my confidence and writing to rise so much more in English, making me learn new techniques to improve my writing and language skills, helping me with plannings for controlled assessments and helping me to practice how to build good and effective paragraphs when it comes to the written exam. I personally, highly recommend her to anybody who struggles in English and I personally also think she's an awesome tutor at the highest standards, which deserves all of the stars!
Jessica has been tutoring my daughter for her gcse drama studies, she has proven herself to be a highly capable tutor who goes out of her way to provide my daughter with excellent resources and the skills to answer even the most difficult questions, she is caring and intelligent with a lovely disposition, my daughter looks forward to her lessons now and can understand what is required of her, which is mainly due to Jessica's tutoring and obvious love of the topic. Will certainly be continuing with the lessons .
