Experience: I was Head of Subject at Aquinas College which has been an outstanding Communication and Culture Department for nineteen years. The Department consistently achieves some of the best exam results in the country for this subject. My subject area is viewed by AQA as a centre of excellence. The most recent OFSTED report described me as an outstanding teacher who is dynamic and charismatic and I achieved (as in every inspection) a Grade 1 status.
In 2004 I sought a new challenge through diversifying my activities and taught English Language and English Literature to GCSE at Princethorpe School in Rugby for two years where I helped to secure achievement of the highest possible standard for my students. As an experienced professional I assessed and educated a series of low achieving groups banishing the fear of failure which resulted in an unprecedented rise in value added scores. I have extremely high standards of pastoral care and consequently I have had the pleasure of mentoring hundreds of students. At Princethorpe School my appraisal commented upon my outstanding work in the realm of pastoral care and my, versatility, vitality and upbeat vibrancy lively humour, warm affectionate and caring rapport. It further stated that I had been an absolute asset to the school.
The happiness and security of my students is paramount to my teaching. I am a resourceful individual and welcome the opportunity to influence and inspire change. I am able to effectively appraise and communicate ideas clearly with enthusiasm and flair.I have also written and coordinated a series of workshops entitled Communication Skills for Success which helped nurture a sense of positive self esteem and to raise confidence levels to heighten personal attainment. For over thirty years I have motivated students and clients far beyond their perceived capabilities.
Entrance exams, GCSE and A Level English Language, English Literature are my field of expertise.

Janet is so lovely and joyful, made my son instantly feel at ease and enjoy the work he was given. She is full of knowledge and is a great teacher. We will be using her expertise again in the future.
We absolutely adore Janet! She is a wonderful English teacher and has such a warming and charismatic character. She has taught both of our daughters for the past year and has really brought them on, equally in confidence and ability. Tallulah`s grade prediction increased from a 6 to 8 for her GCSE and she is now having lessons with Janet to prepare her for English Literature A Level (commencing Sept) Isabella has improved vastly in English since having Janet to help her. Janet has provided continuation in learning throughout the entire `lockdown` period via online resources and has made both girls feel comfortable and able to adapt to the new way of learning. We are so pleased we found Janet! xx
My daughter started with Janet a few weeks ago, for help with English Language GCSE. She has already gained confidence and made really good progress. Janet is a lovely lady and the perfect fit for my daughter. I would highly recommend her.
Janet is a fantastic tutor, we couldn`t be happier with her.
Our daughter has increased her confidence immeasurably since starting with Janet and this has translated into much-improved test results. With one year to go now to GCSEs my daughter has gone from "I`m no good at English" to considering Eng. Lit. as an A-level.
