Information About Janet - Tarporley tutor - (5 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Janet:
I am enthusiastic, hard working, dedicated and a good communicator. I really enjoy teaching one-to-one and watching the difference it makes to the child's confidence. I have tutored for many years and have a high success rate. I currently have several children whom I tutor, some for many years, and I have built up really good relationships with them all.
I am passionate about Drama and the Theatre. My enthusiasm in communicating this passion is well suited to helping youngsters realise their own potential and achieve success.
I have over 20 years experience of primary teaching both in and out of the classroom. I have taught all ages from 4 upwards. I specialise in Primary Maths and English and Entrance Exams. I have helped several pupils gain entry to Independant Schools.
I also teach Speech and Drama and have recently helped several adults improve their speech and pronunciation. As well as building their confidence to speak in public. I have directed numerous plays with children and helped them with their acting ability.
I believe that the basic skills are essential for learning to progress and in every day life. My aim is to help the child achieve their goals and gain confidence in their ability, so they feel more positive in the classroom environment… After assessing the child's ability to find where they most need help, I then plan their lessons accordingly to suit their needs. I have a great deal of patience and experience with all levels and abilities. I endeavour to make learning as fun as I can.

From the initial meeting I could see that Toby and Janet would get along well - a very important part of helping Toby respect Janet and want to do his best.
Janet related well to Toby and each week asked about his activities and interests and listened.
Janet did well to help Toby improve confidence in his own ability which is one of the primary reasons for us contacting her.
The work Janet set Toby was progressive, achievable and suitably challenging.
She did not over phase him but at the same time ensured he was pushed to his potential.
Each week Janet had an incentive to reward Toby for good work and he loved getting his double award points and the ultimate reward of stroking the rabbit.
Overall Toby really enjoyed going to see Janet twice a week and on top of his school homework , keenly worked hard for Janet.
I would definitely seek Janet's help again if we need it!
