Information about Jane

I am an experienced, enthusiastic and highly qualified tutor with a PhD from Edinburgh University, a Masters` from Oxford University and two degrees from Durham University. I have also studied at Bologna University in Italy.

I believe that education should be empowering, not intimidating, so I tutor in a way that builds confidence. Learning can be as much of an adventure as climbing a mountain or discovering a new place, so I encourage asking questions and a sense of discovery. Progress is much easier to make when the student is engaged, focused and relaxed, so I aim to provide the kind of environment that enables this.

On a personal level, I love adventure in remote places (much of my research takes me to the Himalayas) and I ride a Honda CB600F Hornet. I also enjoy touring the US as a musician, travelling between venues on a Harley Davidson, an Indian Scout or a Triumph Bonneville motorcycle.
