We have a total of
review(s) for Joanne.
I contacted Jo to ask her to tutor my son for Psychology A Level on the basis of the highly positive reviews others had given her on this website. I have not been disappointed! Jo is an absolute gem and everything I had hoped to find in a tutor. She is calm, friendly, enthusiastic, very well-organised and extremely knowledgeable about her subject. She is also a brilliant tutor for students with special educational needs. As a result of his ADHD, my son had fallen behind significantly in his work during Year 12. Jo kindly met me before starting to teach him to discuss his needs and to gain a clearer understanding of the challenges he experiences. She also took the time to read his diagnostic report in full. Jo is one of the few teachers my son has had who has really taken on board the level of difficulty and frustration experienced by a bright lad with severe ADHD. She has clear (and high) expectations but is also very understanding, helping him to find ways to manage his difficulties, in effect acting not only as a tutor, but also as a mentor. My son really enjoys his lessons with Jo; he finds them interesting, engaging and hugely beneficial. Thanks to her, he now feels much more confident of achieving a good A Level grade, which will enable him to study Psychology at university.

We cannot recommend or thank Joanne (Jo) enough. Jo was the tutor for our daughter who was studying for a Psychology A Level in one year, with no school teaching support on the subject. Jo immediately established a great rapport with our daughter and has been excellent throughout the year. She is enthusiastic, organised and reliable. Nothing was left to chance with a clear and structured plan at the outset, whereby the course work was covered in good time to allow plenty of time for revision. Jo was professional and supportive throughout the whole process, setting and marking papers promptly, and being easily accessible to clarify certain areas of concern. We wanted the very best tutor for our daughter and, in Jo, we believe that is what we achieved!
Jo is everything you could ask for in a tutor. Engaging, pleasant, smart and knows her subject matter inside out with a special focus on exam technique. She`s the full package as she wears many hats...a disciplined teacher but a fun cheerleader able to keep students on track and on task. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Tutors Response :
Thanks Sarah! That is really lovely feedback. I am very grateful for you taking the time to share your thoughts and glad you have been happy with the support that I have provided. Thanks so much, Jo.
Absolutely amazing tutor, got me from a U in my A2 mock to an A in my final exam and from a C to an A in my AS resit.
Jo was always willing to give me extra help and support outside of the hours we met up which made a real impact and this enabled me to build confidence throughout the year.
The feedback I got on essays was always very detailed and clear with what I needed to do to improve which made it easier for me to prioritise my revision as preparation for my final exams. The tips she gave me on revision was also a real help as it made me focus on my weaker areas rather than the generic content revision I have previously been doing.
I would highly recommend Jo to anyone as not only was she a great tutor but she is willing to go that extra bit to ensure you have confidence and feel prepared in that final run up to the exam period.
Thank you Jo :)
Easy to get on with. Prompt contact. A good tutor
