Information about Jessica

I have been tutoring for the past 6 years and it is something I find extremely rewarding. I offer tutoring alongside my role as Student Adviser for Queen Mary University London. I have also completed and English Literature Phd at the University of Sheffield, where I taught my subject to undergraduate students, and I often delivered lectures. I am also a GCSE examiner, marking papers every summer: this provides me with a unique perspective into exactly what examiners are looking for in exams, and how best to help a young person pass them. My dedication to the education and well-being of young people means that tutoring is so much more than a job for me. Through this work, I have met so many inspiring, interesting and promising young people, which makes my commitment to the work especially fulfilling.

Availability: I am available evenings during the week. I have found that Skype/Zoom sessions have been the most effective, as students feel comfortable in their own home. I also offer a service where students are able to email me through the week with any homework questions/ revision queries for a small extra fee.

Willing to travel: 3 miles

Experience: My enthusiasm for securing bright futures for young people led me to becoming an academic tutor in 2014. I was able to use my skills as a supportive mentor to successfully improve the confidence and the grades of nine GCSE students and five A Level students across Sheffield. The students all struggled with academic studies but through confidence building and calm, patient and supportive tutoring, I have been able to encourage a sense of pride in their work, giving them the confidence to sit their exams. My focus on the well-being of the individual student ensured each student went on to pass their GCSEs, and went on to study in higher education. Through this role, I established and developed strong professional relationships with the students and their families, emboldening an already firm connection to Sheffield.
