I am currently working as a teacher in a good primary school.
As a private tutor I am currently working with a Latin GCSE student, a Classical Civilisation A level student, 2 students studying ks2 maths and english and 2 students studying lower ks3 maths and english.
Jess is extremely reliable and very flexible. She not only helped our son a lot with his classical Civilisation GCSE but also helped him to hone his essay writing skills and as a result he now writes in all his subjects with a far more sophisticated style.
Jess is always well prepared, clearly taking her time to identify exactly what her students need and which resources will help them to achieve their goals.
