Information about Jan

Tutoring isn`t an addition to my main profession. Tutoring IS my profession. I have been a successful, professional tutor for 20 years and have been featured in national newspapers.

My students do not fail. My students` success is my success and I believe that the secret of my 100% pass rate is the fact that I tutor in a way that speaks directly to the student; to their current state of subject knowledge and understanding in addition to the student`s individual learning style.

I work to the student`s individual curriculum, provide high-quality, up-to-date notes and operate on the basis of continuous assessment; hence I test knowledge as my students work through the course rather than leaving things to the exam period. My students find this to be hugely beneficial!

Many of my former students have successful careers as writers, solicitors, barristers and in the exciting fields of legal compliance and marketing.

In 2017 & 2018 my A level students, achieved places at prestigious universities including: UCL, Exeter, Bristol, Leeds, Durham, Manchester, Exeter, Nottingham and Warwick to study Law, English and Politics. My graduating law students have finished with 2:1`s and 1sts, with one of my students receiving the `Outstanding Student of The Year Award`.

I am easy to get along with and I am told I have a great sense of humour but make no mistake, I expect much of my students! When students apply my teaching to their studies, they do very well; surpassing their own expectations and often the expectations of teachers and parents!

Helping you realise your full potential is my sole purpose and I have numerous verifiable testimonials to help in your decision. Please feel free to ask when you contact me.

Availability: I am available weekdays, evenings and Saturdays. Saturday & evening slots are very limited owing to popularity.

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: I am a highly effective career tutor with 20 years experience as a tutor. Early in my career I worked as a subject adviser for the prestigious Institute of Legal Executives (ILEX), I have written academic texts and since then I`ve become the first Master Tutor of the Association of Professional Tutors. I been consulted by the media on education issues including, the Daily Telegraph.

The absolute best LLB Law tutor one can ask for. I couldn`t thank her enough for her time and support. Jan is someone who really cares for her students and goes that extra mile to make sure you understand law. Every lesson has been creative and engaging. 5 stars 🌟;

Jan tutored me for a few months and was fantastic. She explained things to me in detail and I learnt so much from her. Jan is really supportive, patient and a great tutor over all. Would highly recommend!

She is so lovely and welcoming!!! Really helped me with my A-Level law and enabled me to get an A on my mock exam, which I could not have done without her help. I highly recommend Jan to all students, a wonderful tutor.

I would highly recommend Jan as an excellent tutor for A level English, she has provided tremendous support to my daughter and even assisted her with her university application. My daughter`s confidence in English has improved leading to her looking forward to taking her exam next year.

My son struggled with starting an essay in both English Literature and RE. Jan was excellent in showing him how to structure his thoughts. Within two sessions, he was enthusiastic about English and RE. After about 5 sessions, he is the highest achieving child in his class. He believes he is capable to achieve an excellent outcome. Thank you Jan

Tutors Response :

I have just returned from a really uplifting weekend away, only to receive this unsolicited feedback. It`s the icing on the cake!

Receiving Hari`s feedback means the world to me, especially as I know that, she has very high standards!

Finally, I cannot take all the credit for her son`s recent achievements. I have merely provided the tools and he is carving out great grades for himself! Though, I am immensely proud and `chuffed` that I am playing a small part in his amazing journey!

Thank you all for your kindness.

An amazing tutor. Very attentive and caring. Jan is passionate about law and her teaching methods reflect that!

Tutors Response :

When your student brings so much of themselves to their tutorials it makes ones job easier!

Greg is a hardworking professional in a challenging job, studying part-time at his own expense and has taught me as much (if not more) as I have taught him!

It’s a pleasure to know him and I am grateful for this unexpected and unsolicited feedback, it’s put a spring in my step!

Jan has been excellent in tutoring me in A level Government and Politics in my final term. She has provided detailed (and personalised) notes as well as useful knowledge about essay structure and exam technique. She has also been helpful between sessions by marking essays that I have sent her with detailed improvements.
I look forward to our remaining few sessions together as I approach my final exams.

Highly recommended!

Jan is an excellent tutor who is very knowledgeable and conveys her knowledge of complex material in a manner easily understandable. I am a 3rd year LLB Law student and Jan made sure I was well prepared for my exam. A session with her really motivates me and I would highly recommend her.

Jan truly CARES and wants you to succeed and I have experienced other tutors who are only concerned about delivering in the session but Jan goes above and beyond to support you and ensure that you succeed.

Jan is extremely knowledgeable in a wide range of subjects and she never ever judges and that is what makes a great tutor; one u can ask your silliest questions to and not be afraid to say ‘I don’t get it’. I have pretended to understand in front of tutors in the past just so I am not made to feel stupid in front of them but that is not the case with Jan at all, she is truly empowering and explains in a way that truly makes it clear.

I will continue to have more sessions with Jan as it has helped my Law degree immensely.

Thankyou so much Jan! x

Always look forward to my lessons with her! She is very helpful, gives great feedback , large scope of knowledge in both History and English, and teaches you in a way which you learn best. Highly recommend!

Amelia (Miss)

Jan is a wonderful tutor, she is always prepared and ready for my lesson. She has helped me develop so many skills, I look forward to her lesson every week. She is THE best on tutorhunt!

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for this Amelia!

To be frank, you`ve opened my mind to so many things and when a tutor learns as much from the student as they teach, it`s a wonderful thing!

You are a very special teenager. You conduct yourself like someone a decade older. With your focus on getting the very best out of life and the hard work you put into achieving all of your goals, success is is yours for the taking!

I believe that you will go to the top of your chosen profession!

Once again thank you for your very kind feedback!

Jan is perfect. I can’t imagine there is any other tutor for whom my son would be so willing to leave the house on a Saturday morning. He is getting so much out of his weekly tutor sessions for his Government & Politics and History. Jan is not only getting him on track for these A levels, but also her mentoring approach seems likely to enhance his performance in university interviews and help his critical thinking in a way that will stand him in good stead for his adult life.

Tutors Response :

Dear Sally,

Thank you for this unexpected feedback!

Teaching your son is a real pleasure - a ray of sunshine every Saturday morning! It is his enthusiasm that propels the lessons forward and the support and input he receives at home is very evident.

I look forward to the next 6 months as he moves towards the finish line. I have no doubt in his ability to be a huge success!

Once again, many thanks!

Tutors Response :

Dear Ewa,

What lovely feedback!

Tutoring your daughter is one of the favourite parts of my week! She’s wise, asks the right questions and has such a warm personality. Best of all, she loves learning and makes my job very easy!

With the progress she is making I have no doubt she will be a real success!

Once again thank you!

Excellent and enthusiastic about the subject. Passionate in ensuring student success.

Tutors Response :

Thank you for your feedback. It is a pleasure to teach your son and to see that he has improved his grade in such a short period of time.

Jan is a very pleasant and organised tutor,prepares the lessons well and teaches very well. She given my daughter lots of confidence in Philosophy. Jan keeps the parents involved. I would recommend Jan as tutor.

Tutors Response :

Sharon`s daughter is an absolute pleasure to tutor. She is open to learning, engages with the subject-matter, is not afraid to say when she`s struggling with a concept and above all she has the loveliest demeanour.

Of course much has to be said for her mom Sharon, who once a week does a 20-mile round journey to bring her daughter to me. She encourages her daughter (and me) with her genuine interest in what I teach.

All-round lovely people!

I have only just started with Jan but I can tell she is a brilliant tutor. I have had two sessions and feel better about my degree already... Jan always has the relevant material ready for you and is very warm and welcoming x (Last year LLB Law Student)

carol (Mrs)

2/5 Rating

Jan was helpful on the first assignment I did with her guidance. I was very disappointed that I did not get a response from her for the second assignment despite leaving several messages on her phone and email.

Tutors Response :

Carol came to me and I helped her as requested.Indeed I went overboard in helping her.

I did not hear from Carol for several months, and when she did contact me, I was in hospital having surgery. Moreover, I did respond, but as she had requested my help at the last minute, in the circumstances I was unable to help.

Given, the above it is my belief that Carol`s feedback is unwarranted.

When I asked Jan to be my tutor I was impressed with how Jan arranged everything for our sessions and took the time to get to know me. Jan`s interpersonal skills are world class and I always leave our sessions with a renewed confidence that anything is possible.

I came to see Jan shortly before my end of year exams this year and the techniques Jan used really helped me to focus more and grasp quite complex concepts. Since meeting Jan I believe in my academic ability more and Jan makes learning simple and even fun.

If you want to achieve a high level of academic excellence Jan is the one for you. I am so impressed with her dedication to her craft and her natural ability to teach and guide me as a student. You will not be disappointed.

Jan is a PHENOMENAL tutor. When I had first met her she told me that her tutees are her priority - something I can undoubtedly confirm as I have had a first had experience with her talent. She is an amazing tutor and does nothing less than the best to ensure her students attain success. She has thus far made my revision a lot easier to grasp, and I have no hesitation that she will do the same for any tutee she tutors.

Looking VERY forward to be taught by Jan for my upcoming year!

Jan has qualities of a good tutor and a mentor too. She knows how to encourage and support others to achieve their goals. Jan knows how to modify her teaching strategies according to your subjects. Moreover, she is concerned with developing your critical thinking skills and problem-solving skills. She has so many qualities and skills that make her a good teacher, I will just mention a few:
- being good at explaining things
- being a people person and enjoy working with a wide range of people
- having strong knowledge in a many subject areas
- having a good time manager
- having patience and a good sense of humor
- being fair-minded.
Jan will show you respect, interested in both your profession and your personal growth, encourage your independence.
She made my LLB degree easier.

I have been tutored by Mrs Jan for a while now and i am amazed the way she does her tutorials. I can say that Jan does her tutoring with great determination and unlike other tutors she is the most reliable person ive ever come across. She is a very friendly person and she`s definitely up to the standard of a brilliant and serious tutor. What i like most with Mrs JAn is that she is not just like one of those freshly graduated students who are up to some extra money by teaching without even knowing what is tutoring. She is actually a matured and dedicated lecturer with a proper command in teaching and language. Most of all, she never cancels tuition uselessly. Since ive started tutorials, ive never had a lesson cancelled which proved that Mrs Jan is commited.I would strongly recommend her as a tutor and believe me i am talking from experiences i had with some previous tutors that i came across over the net.
