Information about Jo

Hello and thank you for taking the time to look at my profile.

I am a qualified Teacher and experienced Private Tutor.
I offer specifically planned lessons at Primary KS1/KS2 and Secondary level KS3 from Years 1-9 inclusive. My planning is based on what students are currently learning at school and also ensures that any gaps I identify are addressed and consolidated to the best of the student`s ability. This is done in conjunction with striving to push progress for reaching each student`s full potential.

I have tutored students from a mix of state and private Primary and Secondary schools in the Borough. I tutor individuals as well as several siblings who are home schooled.

I believe children’s happiness, self-motivation and esteem are of utmost importance. My approach to teaching shows the greatest respect to all students and aims to ensure they can work independently, are motivated and self-led to succeed. My passion is promoting a growth mindset helps students to learn effectively. I work hard on ‘character education’, as experience shows that it can help to develop resilience, ensuring that students can make progress in other areas of their lives as well as academically.
I always make sure students who I teach are provided opportunities to join in with mature meta-cognition discussions about how they learn best.

My work is not limited to the lessons. I provide resources and additional work to do outside of our sessions to consolidate learning. I actively encourage parents to share communication with me from student`s schools. I am also a big believer in sharing with parents and students where they can find helpful resources so that they can continue our learning independently, if they wish. I am available via email to older students and all parents and carers to answer any queries.This works very well with all students; to know that I am there as a support outside of lessons as well as during.

As a classroom Teacher and Private Tutor I ensure that the majority of students make expected progress and are on track to end the year meeting age related expectations, with some achieving greater depth. I am passionate that all children can make progress. This comes across in teaching and in lessons. It is my main focus to promote a love of learning, impart knowledge and develop all student’s understanding through a wide range of learning opportunities. To affect this, I continually strive to meet the needs of individual learners, particularly EAL and less able pupils. Ensuring that, even if their progress may not meet Age Related Expectations (ARE), they still develop at a pace that matches their strength, ability and most importantly as a whole rounded individual. With students who already meet their ARE, my priority is to harness their current knowledge and to facilitate additional learning at greater depth and through a continued love and want for learning.

I believe all students must first be ready as individuals before they can develop their ability to learn; our success as teachers is to instil in children a love of learning, whatever form that learning may be. Feedback from my parents and carers suggest that my students quickly and easily find me easy to work with as I genuinely care and take an interest in all students, and ultimately they can see me as a role model who they can talk to at ease.

Outside of teaching my interests include baking, cooking, embroidery, gardening and learning about history and heritage. I enjoy travelling and exploring different cultures and gaining new experiences. I share such experiences by making links with cross-curricular learning in my teaching. My previous professional experiences add to the experience and knowledge I am able to pass on through my teaching. Skills acquired as a Trainer and Account Manager, as well as my time working in Regulation and Law, mean I am resourceful and well organised and have invaluable experiences and skills to help ready and prepare older Secondary students for a working future. I can provide subject and career choice guidance as well as an ability to help prepare and draft CVs, personal statements and or job applications. I also offer this service to those seeking to apply to Universities or further education.

I set targets and plan initial action plans on a case by case basis, tailoring this to each student and taking into account individual factors. I encourage and welcome initial conversations and face-to-face meetings where we can discuss this further, as a successful working relationship requires a suitable fit, both for parent/carers and students. For a more detailed explanation or chat on how tutoring can support you and your child, please contact me.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Availability: UPDATE: Due to COVID-19, lessons are now conducted online using video call, and an interactive two-way teaching whiteboard area.

You do not need to purchase any software or create any login accounts. I have a pro account for the interactive teaching area. If you have a laptop,PC or tablet I will show you how myself and student will be able to see each other as well our work as we write in real time. I have had all my existing long term students and some new ones move over to online as a substitute to in-person lessons, and have had lots of positive feedback.

Day time or evenings during all weekdays and some day times at the weekend.
I do also offer online lessons using video calling, and an interactive shared whiteboard area to cover learning as a substitute to in-person lessons.

Please note weekend tutoring rates incur an additional £15 per hour. e.g. Primary Level £65 per hour.

Jo is currently tutoring our 8 year old in maths and English. Jo quickly understood our daughters learning needs/gaps and connected with her to form a happy and enthusiastic tutoring bond. Jo has adapted her tutoring sessions seamlessly during this time of isolation (Covid-19) and now tutors on line using appropriate technology which is proving both fun and effective. We are delighted with our experience so far and the progress our daughter is making.

Tutors Response :

Thank you for your kind feedback.

Also thank you as well for your adaptability during the Covid-19 social distancing and lockdown.

We have not long started but already I can see that with continued sessions and routine, she will be able to progress and improve in both her English and Maths. She is a delight to teach. She has quickly become engaged and shows curiosity with her questioning and responses.

I really look forward to helping her continue to improve and reach her academic potential.

We`ve only had a few lessons with Miss Jo but so far so good, she is lovely, our children finish their lesson with big grins on their faces and in a short space of time she is already getting the measure of them accurately and working out what their individual maths needs are.

Tutors Response :

Thank you Amy.

It is always a pleasure to teach both children. They are enthusiastic in their own ways, and this really helps to make our lessons enjoyable and a delight to teach. They both work hard and show engagement with our learning. I look forward to seeing their continued progress and development in their academic achievements.

Jo is currently tutoring my daughter in English and Math’s. The sessions are helping with areas she lacks confidence. In just a few weeks my daughter is making excellent progress. Thank you Jo.

Tutors Response :

Thank you for the kind feedback Nikoleta.

It has been a pleasure working with her. In a short time your daughter has worked hard and tried her best to improve her progress. She is doing extremely well. I look forward to seeing her continue to make good progress.

I`m very pleased with Jo and her methods towards helping my children. She works above and beyond, I find her feed back and guidance really helpful as us parents need the odd bit of advice when it comes to getting the best out of our Children which she does eloquently. Jo clearly loves what she does and her enthusiasm definitely filters down to my children as they enjoy her classes.

We just started to work with Jo but I already can tell that we made the right choice. Jo is very kind and determined and I am sure she will be supporting my boys in their academic development.

Tutors Response :

I am very much enjoying getting to know both boys as well as yourself and your husband. The boys have already made wonderful progress with their academic studies, I am very impressed considering your not long re-location and I look forward to continuing to support them both with this, as well as helping with their continued character development. I look forward to continuing to work with you all.

Jo has been fantastic. Great at communicating and very flexible. She has a true interest in my son and his learning and is interested in all aspects of his education. She goes above and beyond. My son loves studying with Jo and has progressed so quickly. Highly recommended.

Tutors Response :

I am very much enjoying supporting him with his learning as well as his general development. He is becoming more confident (if possible!) and most importantly I too am seeing progress being made. He has been a joy to work with and I look forward to our increased sessions.

Jo has been tutoring my Y6 daughter for just over a month, and I can`t recommend her highly enough.

She prepares for each lesson and is punctual and reliable. She has been quick to identify weak areas and we can already see positive results. Jo is gentle yet keeps my daughter focused and engaged throughout her session - so much so that she looks forward to her time with Jo every week!

Absolutely no hesitation in rating 5/5!


Tutors Response :

It`s a pleasure to work with, guide and support her learning. She looks forward to maths and most importantly she`s finding her own confidence again. She`s a joy to work with and is applying herself well.
