Information about Jane
I am a very experienced primary school teacher and tutor. I teach English at all levels from KS1 to yr7, Maths for all primary stages and 11 plus exam preparation. I have always continued working in schools so I am fully up to date with all the latest curriculum developments. Over the years I have taught many students who have developed their confidence, skills and self belief. I tailor my sessions to suit your child`s preferred learning style and I am happy to liaise with their school if required. I work from a dedicated office in my home. Parents are welcome to stay and observe sessions or wait, or equally to leave their child and return later. I have a full DBS certificate and I would be happy to provide references.
I offer your first session for free.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: BA Hons 2:1, PGCE
20 years primary school teaching across all levels.
15 years tutoring at all primary stages and 11 plus exam preparation.
Feedback For Jane (13)
My daughter loves Jane very much Jane make her tutorial easy to understand for my daughter and Jane is so attentive to which area my daughter focus. Thank you very much Jane.
Jane is absolutely perfect. Our son is sitting the 11+ and we found her at short notice following the lift on covid lockdown. He was very reluctant to have a tutor (or to study more!) and she has made it an utter pleasure for him. We don`t even have to push him to practice at home! She is very approachable, listens to both the concerns of parent and child, and is generous with her teaching time. Completely recommend her!
A shaft of light - in the darkness of 11+ We were lucky to find Jane for some 121 sessions for my Daughter to help bolster her 11+ confidence and tactics. We wish we had gone to her earlier on, as we found her enthusiasm and attitude addictive, my daughter was looking forward to having her sessions with Jane. My daughter took the 11+ exam last week, we don`t know the results yet, but nevertheless, the experience with Jane was nothing but positive and reassuring. Would recommend Jane to anyone with 11+ tuition needs. Sincerely, Colin
Great tutor :) my daughter loves coming to Jane, her confidence has improved greatly and her English is improving. Very pleased
My daughter loves going to Jane and did so immediately! Jane is very patient and encouraging and my daughter feels very at ease there! Can`t recommend highly enough - so glad we found her!
My daughter had tuition with Jane from May 2017-September 2018 initially for maths and then for high school entrance exams.
I couldn`t have asked for a warmer, more skilled tutor. Jane knew exactly how to get the best out of my daughter with her patient, yet determined manner. As a consequence my daughter`s ability and confidence soared which ultimately led to her passing both her entrance exams with flying colours.
Lots of people I knew going through the tutoring process opted for group class-based tutors. However choosing Jane meant my daughter was tutored one-to-one in a lovely welcoming family-based setting which was definitely the best option for my daughter and for me!
Big thanks Jane!
P.S and thanks for the regular loan of your kitchen table and the cups of tea 😀;;
Tutors Response :
Ah thank you so much Bryony! And big congranulations to your lovely girl - she did so well and worked so hard - she deserves her success!! I hope she loves high school - keep in touch!! 😊;;
My daughter has had a couple of sessions with Jane, and already seems more focused and enthusiastic about trying out maths at home. Jane is welcoming and has all of the resources and approaches that you`d expect from an experienced teacher. I would recommend to anyone.
Jane is lovely and was so encouraging. My son is quite shy but warmed to her immediately and really enjoyed his lessons.
Tutors Response :
Thank you Clare - best of luck going forward!
Very supportive tutor. Wish I had found Jane earlier in the year. Jane has been accommodating and very encouraging. Children are tutored in a lovely, welcoming family environment. Lots of hints and tips given to guide children in their development of test techniques.
Excellent tutor. Really happy with her services.
Fabulous tutor very warm, friendly and welcoming, and tailors her sessions to specifically meet the needs of the individual child. Very highly recommended by me, Thankyou!
I keep getting messages from Tutor Hunt to grade the tutor - after just a few weeks I think it is far too early to actually be able to give any feedback. She seems nice, but until my child passes his 11+, how to know?
Tutors Response :
Thanks Peter. I`m really pleased your son achieved a place at grammar school, and it has been a pleasure teaching his brother this year! Jane
When Jane first met my daughter she made her feel instantly at ease. As a result my daughter enjoys learning and working with Jane, who is building her confidence and improving her English skills.
Jane has very quickly pinpointed my daughters weaknesses and is helping her to strengthen these areas.
My daughter looks forward to her weekly lesson with Jane, the only problem is she says they go too fast! Thank you Jane for making learning fun.
