Information about Jenny

Fresh off the boat from Bordeaux, I bring with me a strong command of the French language. I am a qualified teacher of English and French, with over thirteen years of full-time teaching experience. Most of my teaching has been face-to-face, but I am also well versed in online teaching.

I taught English as a first language, and French as a foreign language, at senior school level, but for four years have been living in France, where I have been teaching English full time, as a second language.

I have a gift for building self-confidence in students and am empathetic and patient in empowering them to achieve their personal goals. My aim is to foster a belief that anything is possible, that we all have gifts, and that we need to develop the skills to use them to the fullest.

I am passionate about teaching writing skills and am dedicated to promoting and developing the power of using the right word in any given context, and the mastery of grammar for skilful delivery of argument.

I am equally committed to the spoken word. I myself am a strong public speaker and enjoy teaching this skill in particular.

When I am not teaching, my fingers are flying across a computer keyboard, writing popular fiction.

I am adventurous and inquisitive and enjoy discovering new ways of looking at the world and encouraging young people to decide what they believe in and why, where they are going and how.

Willing to travel: 1 miles

Experience: I have 13 years of senior school teaching experience, up to the equivalent of A level, in English as a first language and French as a foreign language. I also have three and a half years of teaching English as a second language to adults in France.

My company had a need of lesson`s for staff that were interacting with French clients and I was asked to organise someone. I scoured several sites and came across Jenny, who appeared to be extremely competent and wonderfully friendly from her reviews, so I thought we should give her a try. All of the participants have been extremely happy with Jenny as our choice. As well as being a great tutor she is very kind and patient too, which is exactly what our staff have needed to help them confidently tackle learning a new language and feel enabled and confident in using it. We would definitely recommend her.

Jenny’s help for my son was invaluable. With a kind, friendly approach, Jenny quickly saw his gaps of knowledge and brought him up to speed. There were several moments of clarity as my son realised how to do things that had confused him over the last 2 years. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Jenny to anyone.
