Jenny is a kind, easy going person who takes every challenge in her stride she is a great listener and has a charismatic attitude to any challenge she faces. She has a wide variety of skills in textiles which help her to understand her students and get along with almost anyone.
I have known Jenny personally for many years now, her passion for textiles and design is astonishing, you only need to take a look at her website so see the amount of thought and dedication that goes into every piece of work she does. Jenny is also extremely kind and easy to get along with and has helped me out with personal projects in the past, her ability to break down a complex skill into easy to learn segments is second to none which I believe will make her a great tutor.
I do know Jenny well, belonging to our in-law-family.
Being a Dutchman, I have to find the proper English words, but, trust me, students can benefit from her enthusiasm, she is young and modest, but can teach you technical skills, give advice and instructions, she is full of ideas and plans for her own and students' future. (Ger Meijer, Amsterdam)
Being a very approachable, polite and patient person, Jenny is a very down to earth person to help provide tuition in any area.
