This is how 2 referees rated Jill:
I am currently Head of Geography and have been a Geography teacher for 14 years and have been successfully tutoring for the last four years. I really enjoy working with students 1:1 in order for them to achieve their goals and have had many successes with seeing students gain their university places as a result of the personalised teaching and confidence boosting that they need to pass their examinations with flying colours. I am also a lead examiner and this is highly beneficial for assisting students apply their knowledge to the exam questions and access the questions.
I am currently Head of Geography and have been a Geography teacher for 14 years. I have worked in four different schools all with different needs in order for students to reach their potential. I am currently Head of Humanities at a secondary school in the North East of England and prior to this I was a Head of Geography and Sociology. I have a real passion for Geography as a subject and I am a current for Geography GCSE an AS/A2. Being an examiner as well as a teacher allows me to teach examination technique as well as time management in addition to content for students to maximise their time in the examination to gain the highest grade possible.
I always think that a telephone conversation or visit to ascertain the needs of the student is paramount to plan for the first session. Often students feel that they can learn what is needed but have little skills to actually retain the information and apply it to the examination. I always aim to make students feel comfortable and able to ask questions that they may not have the confidence to do in a class situation.

We were so lucky to have chosen the right tutor for Sam. He has come on so much and not just work wise but in confidence which is true testament to all the guidance that he has received.
It's not often I've been able to say that I would thorough recommend someone but I would have no hesitation in recommending you, Jill, you have achieved so much in a short time it's quite remarkable
From wondering how we could forward Sam has now had 3 conditional offers for Uni. I doubt this would be the case had you not been there. I can't thank you enough.
My daughter loves working with Jill and I highly recommend her.
Thank you Jill
