Information about Jill

Hello! I`m a fully qualified and experienced teacher of secondary Religious Education, History and English Language and Literature with experience of teaching years 7 to 13. I have taught Anthropology, Philosophy and Media in the FE sector, currently teach English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) at Leeds City College, and have tutored children for the 11+ and school entrance exams in the past.

I also specialise in Holocaust education and work as an educator for the Holocaust Educational Trust on the Lessons from Auschwitz programme. In addition, I teach at the National Holocaust Centre near Newark, and work with all ages from children in years 5 and 6 to secondary students to adults.

In my other work, I am a fully qualified and experienced Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP)
Advanced Professional copy editor and writer. I am Level 2 in British Sign Language and speak French, German and some Arabic.

Availability: I usually have more availability on Thursday, Friday and at the weekends, but it is best if you contact me to discuss. I actually live near Wakefield but work near the centre of Leeds, so cover both areas.

Willing to travel: 10 miles

Experience: I have a secondary PGCE in RE but also teach History in secondary schools. I`ve also taught Media, Anthropology, Citizenship, Critical Thinking and Ethics to 16+ and adults. I hold the Celta English teaching qualification and am currently doing Delta.

I`m also a copy editor specialising in religion, theology and history and have worked for many big-name educational publishers, including Pearson, Macmillan (for whom I have written three RE textbooks) and Collins. I train copy editors for the Publishing Training Centre and Society for Editors.

Shaun (Mr)

5/5 Rating

My son is in his final year GCSE. Jill has been tutoring him over the last few months. English is a subject he has struggled with. At his recent parents evening, his teacher has commented on and noted his improvement. This is as a consequence of Jill. She is extremely attentive and engaging, drawing him into discussions and getting him to think, analyse and reason. He looks forward to his lessons, which is an indication of his new found enthusiasm. I am therefore extremely pleased with Jill as his tutor.

5/5 Rating

Jill is not only a great tutor but also makes the study interesting and is a excellent motivator for my 16 year old who really had no interest in partaking in additional study but actually looks forward to each lesson
