Information about Jackie
All learning should be fun and engaging, structured, personalised with challenge and support. That is what every student is guaranteed from me.
At present, I have been a private tutor for 7 years and currently deliver GCSE English and Maths to year 11 and 12 students and SATs booster lessons to year 5 and 6 students. In the past I have also taught numeracy and literacy to adults wishing to gain qualified teacher status with a 100% pass rate.
However, I am a qualified teacher with over 35 years teaching experience at both secondary and tertiary age ranges within Dudley and Sandwell schools and colleges. Although Business Studies and ICT was my main subject I have delivered KS3 English and Maths, KS4 English, often to challenging students or students of low ability. I am committed and hardworking and have enjoyed a successful career in education improving the life chances of young people in my care.
My hobbies include walking, especially with my dog and music. I sing in a choir, play the guitar and ukulele as well as learning how to play the banjo. Other interests include being Secretary of the local Yacht Club and a member of the local gym and spa.
I am willing to work during breaks and summer holidays.
Availability: I have some availability during the day, evenings and weekends.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: My main roles have been Head of Business Studies, Inclusion Coordinator, Head of Sixth Form, Lead Coordinator for Diplomas in a Dudley Consortium of schools and 14-19 Coordinator. I have been Lead Assessor for BTEC courses as well as assessor for Business Studies, I successfully achieved qualified Chartered Assessor status in 2010.
I have taught in a number of challenging schools and two local tertiary colleges. I have delivered Geography to year 9 students whose teacher was on maternity leave, keyboard and computer skills to adults, English, Mathematics, A level Economics and Business Studies, life skills to low ability students. I have successfully delivered a range and breadth of subjects to a wide range of levels.
I have 7 years experience of private tutoring in English, Mathematics and Businesses Studies, at present I am delivering GCSE English and GCSE Mathematics to a year 10 and a year 11 student as well as QTS skills to a young adult who wishes to become a teacher.
My experience has given me a superior level of skill in identifying weakness within a student and providing a learning plan and supporting resources which will allow them to find success.
