Janet Lynn

Private Maths and English Tutor in Daventry

I mainly teach in my own home. My husband is a retired teacher and we have two grown up children. I play golf at least twice a week, go to the gym and love to enter, and of course win, competitions.

I thoroughly enjoy my teaching. I prepare mainly for Rugby High and Lawrence Sheriff but many children have also entered for other Grammar schools and a wide variety of private and Independent schools as well. (Including Common Entrance exams).

My middle name is Lynn and this is what I am know as. I am very happy for the children to call me by this name.

Tutoring Experience

I am a qualified teacher with over 39 years of teaching experience; this includes 22 years in school and 17 years teaching privately.
I am a dedicated teacher who really enjoys teaching. I teach youngsters who are unable to go to school through illness and am employed part-time by Northamptonshire County Council.

I trained to be a Food Technology/Home Economics teacher and taught it for 22 years, as well as Maths to GCSE.
I have been tutoring for 17 years and have an excellent pass rate in getting children into both private schools and the grammar schools.
I keep up to date with my subject through regular Continuing Professional Development activities including attending seminars and courses run by the exam boards.

Tutoring Approach

I am an experienced and approachable tutor - I aim to make lessons fun, whilst ensuring the learner is learning the skills they need to pass their exams at the highest grade they can achieve! I have marked GCSE papers and moderated coursework in the past, which has offered me insights into the exam process and what the examiners are looking for. I also use past papers where applicable to analyse student performance and guide future revision.

Lessons are usually one hour for a single lesson and one and a quarter hours for a group lesson (maximum of 5 children).
For the 11+ and entrance exams I teach in small groups so the cost is reduced in this case to £20.
I can also do group lessons for secondary maths.

Lessons take place in my own home but in exceptional circumstances, I may travel up to 10 miles. Travel expenses must be paid in addition to the cost of the lesson.
I teach children from the middle of year 4 through to year 11 for GCSE.

Maths to GCSE including Key Stage 2, 3 and 4.
Home Economics at Key Stage 3 and 4
English at Key Stage 2
Preparation for the 11+ and entrance exams for private schools from year 4 to year 6

I believe that everyone deserves the opportunities learning can bring, and I can work with the learner and parents to rebuild confidence. I am a versatile and friendly teacher who likes to develop effective working relationships with my learners to help them achieve their potential. Lessons are always tailored to the student's needs.
