Information about Jo
Hi! My name is Jo and I am a graduate from Oxford Brookes University, having acquired a 2.1 in Sports Coaching and Physical Education.
Availability: I can provide help with exam techniques and revision strategies or more general, long term, tutoring following the school curriculum. At A-level and GCSE especially, it is important to know what the examiners are looking for and how best to answer the questions - this is something I can assist with to help you reach your full potential. One of my recent biggest achievements is mentoring 10 students who are on the Autistic spectrum and seeing 8 of them achieve a grade C, these students took on board my points and opinions and went with them to reach there full potential.
My greatest strength is my ability to explain concepts so that my students understand.
If you would like to know anything else, Please do not hesitate to get in touch and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
I am free most evenings and am flexible with the weekend depending on engagements. I also work term time only.
Willing to travel: 3 miles
Experience: I have recently qualified as a teacher in further education sector, where I have worked for the past 4 years. I work with students on the Autistic Spectrum predominantly in English GCSE giving students one-to-one study support
GCSE LITERATURE AND LANGUAGE ALL BOARDS
My students routinely exceed their predicted grades. I can help non native speakers access the curriculum, whilst giving targeted grammatical explanations which develops command of written English.
I have had several students who have undertaken there 11 plus exam. I provide tailor made lessons, working on comprehension, writing and both group and individual interview skills.
Feedback For Jo (8)
Jo taught my daughter in preparation for an 11+ entrance exam. We are extremely pleased with the support Jo provided. Jo was always prepared and was able to connect and work with my daughter to improve her English. My daughter was reluctant to write stories, and to put her ideas on paper. But, Jo has given my daughter the confidence to write really amazing stories whilst including key grammar and language points which will be evaluated positively in the exam. Thank you Jo.

Tutors Response :
Thanks Karen, she is a pleasure to teach. I look forward to continuing with Sian when this is all over.
Jo has engaged with our daughter really easily, she has tailored the tuition sessions to our daughters needs.
Absolutely spot on with my teenager. Jo completely understands what is required from the syllabus and within each question type. She has identified quickly areas that need strengthening and has converted my teen`s attitude towards the English exam from reluctance to confidence.
Jo is an excellent English tutor.Since working with Jo my son has gained a lot of confidence and enjoys working with her.if you want your child to succeed then you definitely should take on Jo as a tutor.

Many thanks to this platform we found Jo, My boy is looking forward to see her.
I found Jo about 3 months before my daughter`s GCSE English exams, we needed someone who could help build her confidence, and coach her in specific techniques to pass her exam. Not only did Jo fill my daughter with a confidence in her own ability, she diagnosed a learning difficulty that the school had missed.
Jo was fantastic, so supportive, she spent time explaining the concepts in a way that my daughter could understand, helped her with spelling, grammar and specific techniques for the different question types in the exam.
Whilst we don`t have the results yet, I cannot thank Jo enough for her enthusiasm and belief in my daughter. I can`t recommend her highly enough!
We will not be here this Monday coming and will be back from Tuesday. Do you have any availibility this week to teach Ines. 2x1hour would be good
