Feedback For Jill (8)
Jill has been tutoring my son who is in his last year of secondary school. During the pandemic my sons education were cut short with his school by not being prepared for any online education to keep momentum, from here we decided to get some help from an experienced teacher. Luckily we came across this side which allowed me to find tutors for key areas my son required extra help. Through Tutor Hunt we were able to view a number of teachers, Jill`s experience and ability stood out from all the profiles for English, this helped us make our decision quickly for Jill to be my sons English teacher. Over the course of 3 months I have seen a remarkable change in my sons results and confidence, the next half term (Januay start) will be a cruicial time for Jill to keep the momentum going with my son with preparation activities as we head into final GCSE exams. Jill has excellent communication skills, she has vast experience, teaching English in schools using the latest curriculum which has helped my son progress extremely well on a subject which he has previously struggled in. Jill`s hard work and determination has helped my son achieve get higher grades. Jill is excellent teacher, highly recommended.
A lovely tutor and person
My daughter is really enjoying her lessons with her and said she is easy to get along with
Jill was a very experienced tutor and very familiar with the GCSE English coursework requirements. We found her on Tutorhunt just a month before our son`s GCSE exams. She understood my son`s ability and where he needed improvement and was able to make a true difference in that short space of time. I would highly recommend Jill.
Jill is lovely,my son gets on very well working with her,and is making good progress.
I would be more than happy to recommend Jill as an English tutor . My son struggled with GCSE English and wasn`t predicted great grades . However, Jill worked patiently with him , concentrating on the areas he found challenging and his confidence in his abilities really improved .
As a result he has achieved fantastic grade results in both Literature and Language allowing him to continue on to study his A level choices in sixth form . Thanks so much Jill .
Jill has done four (4) lessons with my daughter and so I think she is very good. I have also spoken to my daughter about Jill`s method of teaching and she think she is already picking up certain things she did not know before. I am happy to have her to support my daughter.
Really pleased with the work Hill is doing with my daughter. Very focussed, well prepared and thoroughly professional. My daughter is feeling much more confident leading up to her GCSE in English and enjoys Jill`s calm and direct approach. Thank you Jill.
