Information about Joan

I enjoy working alongside students to help them move forward with their knowledge and understanding, not only of what the course means for the exam and how to answer questions, but also how to apply that to life, and life changes and technology moves in, for example, during Covid-19 I helped lead teaching online in our school and I feel that there is a lot value of teaching that way, particularly coaching.

Availability: From September 2020
Afternoons and evenings only

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: I`ve been teaching 17 years following a 20 year career working in industry in the IT department of large companies. I`ve been Head of Department at two schools and have been instrumental in introducing Computer Science at a successful school in Solihull.
Mostly I teach the OCR specification at A level and GCSE, but I`m willing to explore other specs with you.

I know students find it hard to get their programming project reports written well, so I`m really proud that my students results have been worthy of A* grades when they follow my advice. These results have not been changed after moderation. I`ve taught the whole of the A-level specification and most of the GCSE.

Since Computer Science replaced ICT for Key Stage 3 I have been teaching both ICT and Computer Science to all KS3 students, with the aim of ensuring that they are prepared for a range of GCSE subjects and also employment.

DBS Check: Yes

Joan has helped my son - currently in year 8 - to understand an area of CS he was struggling with and achieve top grades - in a very short period. Her approach allowed him to be fully relaxed and enjoy the learning process. She gives constructive feedback after each lesson. She is reliable, very professional and I would recommend without hesitation!

Tutors Response :

Thank you Tygoli.

Joan was very helpful and understanding of our specific request. She had prepared beforehand and had also been able to answer spontaneous questions with lots of detail when explaining it. I highly recommend Joan as a Computer Science tutor due to her interactive yet informative lessons and also due to her dedication in supporting students even outside lessons.

Tutors Response :

Many thanks for your feedback. Best of luck for your son in his future studies.

Mrs Joan has been an excellent Teacher. She has been helping my daughter with her GCSE Computer Science Paper. This has already reflected in her recent exams. We are very pleased and would recommend Mrs Joan to any parents, specially who are looking for excellent tutor for their children preparing for GCSE exams.
