Jesse tutored my daughter during the Easter holidays before she took her
French A level. My daughter was finding the spoken element difficult, and needed someone to take the time to encourage and support her so that she had the confidence and increased ability to go into her examination believing in herself. Jesse was thorough, dedicated and charming, and in a matter of
half a dozen lessons my daughter brought her mark up in her oral from a D
to an A*. I would not hesitate to recommend her.
Jesse has been tutoring my 6-year-old son in English since October
last year. English is not his mother tongue and he lacked essential
language skills which slowed down his academic development.
He has made a noticeable progress in speaking and writing and this was acknowledged by the school. He now feels more confident in expressing his thoughts. There is great improvement in his pronunciation. Jesse is very genuine and easy-going, and manages to control the learning process brilliantly.
Jesse has been teaching both my children aged 11&12 in French. Our lessons are via Skype as we live in Africa. We have found Jesse to be reliable, thorough, and genuinely caring about the children's progress.
Jesse prepares the lessons before hand to maximise valuable time and structures the lessons according to what they are finding difficult. Both my children respect Jesse as she is great with them. My son needs a tutor with patience which she has. The lessons have definitely helped.
