My name is Jen and I am an experienced Tutor who specialises in working with young children through to adolescents. Having achieved straight A's in my A levels, I graduated from Kings College with a BA in Philosophy before I went on to LAMDA to train to become an actor. I have a great deal of love and passion for working with young minds and helping them to excel academically and also build their confidence and enjoyment in learning. I make it my mission to bring fun and life to the subjects I teach and believe each child has the capability to achieve their goals with an engaged mind and a belief in themselves.
I have a wide array of experience in both private tutoring and classroom teaching. My students have ranged from 5 year olds in need of creative help with their English, through to A level students wanting to attend some of the best Universities in the world. I have great success with 11+ students and children at KS1 and KS2 level as well as experience with children in their Secondary education. I have worked in the UK and the USA and have a lot of experience working with children moving from non English speaking countries who need extra support with their English.
My approach is simple. I aim to create an environment where the child feels comfortable to try and to fail, to learn and to grow and to have fun doing it. I help them engage in their own abilities, to unlock their creativity and understand how their mind works. I am firm but fair - I have expectations for my students that we talk about together. I think it is important to have a clear structure and goals. Communication with children is key - I take the time to understand my students and how best to bring subjects to life. When a child struggles with a subject it is often because they don't feel they can engage with it - my job is to help them do that.
