Information about Jemma
A passionate educator since graduating with a first class Honors and starting my own textiles craft business.
I began tutoring even whilst at university and supported students with their degree subjects in their earlier years.
As well as training and dedicating a lot of time to the teaching profession and my career, I began teaching samba drumming to local people! I became interested in the drums and within a couple of years had mastered them to a level where I could begin expanding a local drum band in the UK. This also led me to play the drums in Barcelona where I lived in 2015 and Paris is 2016.
After running a school trip to Africa, to support a school for disadvantaged children in Nakuru, I decided to travel and support the training of new teachers to create a sustainable network of teachers in the area. Currently I work for various charities and travel between countries to help with educational projects.
Availability: Very flexible.
Willing to travel: 50 miles
Experience: I ran a new Design and Technology Department in the UK and specialised in Textiles Technology, Food Technology and Graphic Products. I have experience with Product Design and Resistant Materials at KS3, GCSE and A Level.
I supported completion of coursework at GCSE level for Systems and control and have moderated for AQA and OCR courses.
My original link to D&T was fine art as I went to Art college and specialised in painting and drawing. Over the years this developed into textiles and the technology subjects. I now also teach iGCSE Art and Design to students all over the world.
Feedback For Jemma (4)
Jemma was incredibly thorough helping us work out the right course and I would highly recommend her.
Professional and skillful tutor that I can rely on.
Jemma was fantastic. The way Jemma explained areas of Product Design and the information she provided was excellent. Jemma was always encouraging and supportive, making Oliver feel more confident in himself as he does lack confidence and gets nervous in Exams. Jemma made Oliver feel really comfortable and she was so delightful. We would definitely recommend Jemma to other students. Thanks so much Jemma!
Jemma is a great DT tutor, she has given my son the knowledge and confidence to be able to do his DT AS Level Product Design exam. She has also provided him with a great deal of resources, which have been very useful. We cannot recommend Jemma highly enough.
