Experience: I have been tutoring privately for over 10 years, and full-time since 2015.
Many of my students are bilingual or majority speakers of languages other than English. I tutor up to GCSE level in both English Language and English Literature. I also prepare students for Common Entrance 11+ and 13+ examinations. In addition, I tutor in verbal reasoning for SATs, IELTS, GESE and other Secure English examinations.
I tutor up to GCSE level in Mathematics. I also tutor in numerical reasoning for IELTS.
Physics, Chemistry and Biology
I tutor up to GCSE level in Physics, Chemistry and Biology.
I tutor French up to GCSE level.
I use my CELTA training to help students learning English as a foreign language. These include child and adult speakers of many other languages, including : French, Mandarin Chinese, Russian, Japanese, Italian, Polish, German and Romanian. Much of this work is vocabulary-based, with a strong emphasis on workplace "survival" English, conversation, interview English, customer service skills, idioms and expressions.
"The quality of tuition you provide to my son is second to none. The detailed feedback after the lesson is a great way of knowing how my son is doing. Communication is always perfect as always get prompt reply to any question I had. Your professionalism and time keeping is spot on. You always kept my son engaged and he loves to learn from you." M, parent of Skype student.
"I would like to thank Jo for having me. She is an outstanding teacher, and what I like the most about her teaching style is that she motivates and encourages me to write and to use better expressions and also because she explains the right meaning of the expressions. I would highly recommend her for anyone who wants to improve English." J, adult speaker of Romanian.
"Jo has been tutoring my son now for nearly 2 years. My son has built up a wonderful relationship with Jo. He feels confident in asking questions and feels Jo is always approachable and doesn`t make him feel he is being intrusive when asking questions. He is a quiet shy boy who Jo has given the confidence in English that he never had before his lessons began with her. Her style of teaching is warming, friendly and catered especially to what his learning needs are. On request Jo will always cover pieces of work that he is having difficulty with at school. Which when he goes to school relishes in the knowledge he has learnt at Jo`s and excels. Jo goes to great lengths to seek and find books and information whatever is needed to help assist him in his learning. And I always get feedback after every lesson." L, parent of face-to-face student.

Jo was very helpful and informative during the sessions I had with her. She was flexible around teaching topics and would plan the lesson according to your needs.
