I could not rate Dr Janet Lewison highly enough. Having worked as colleagues for many years, at one time being her mentor and later supervised by her, I am delighted to state that her professionalism, integrity and dedication is second to none.
Janet's obvious knowledge and experience make her an exceptional teacher at any level and her own love of learning coupled with her humanity and care raises the learning experience beyond the ordinary to become truly inspirational.
Janet is a passionate English tutor who is sensitive to different learning styles. She has a special ability to connect and inspire confidence using her expertise to challenge her tutees, facilitating learning and enjoyment. My daughter always came home feeling more confident with greater self belief in her ability to risk having a go and enjoyed the lessons.
If you want to develop your critical or creative voice, build your academic confidence, or just have great fun exploring literary texts then Janet will be the perfect tutor for you. With a proven record of excellence in tutoring students at all academic levels, Janet can provide the expert advice and caring support that you need to achieve your personal best. By helping learners to become more curious and imaginative thinkers in English, Janet's teaching approach can also prove beneficial in terms of developing your problem-solving skills across other subject areas. Highly recommended!!!
Janet is the most approachable and friendly academic you could imagine. She really knows her stuff and how to get the best out of people.
Dr. Lewison tutored me through my A levels several years ago and the techniques she taught me were ones I employed even whilst completing my BA (hons) degree. What I love about her teaching style is that she encourages discussion and makes the student feel that their opinions and thoughts are valuable and this really does a lot for confidence, particularly when going into exam seasons. I'd recommend Janet to anyone who wants to broaden their mind, to learn as opposed to being 'fed' answers or simply told how to do things, it's a whole new learning experience and I've found it's helped me throughout higher education and into my working life.
Dr. Janet Lewison came highly recommended and surpassed all expectations. She is an exceptional, engaging, insightful and enabling teacher who is able to work at all levels of student need and ability. Finding the right tutor is like finding the right school, that's why we chose Janet. My daughter received A Level tuition during year 11 and achieved an excellent result. When you choose Janet you can be assured of the brightest outcome. Tuition at its very best.
Janet was my tutor during my Literature degree. She combines a superb, extensive subject knowledge with a warm, enthusing manner that makes learning with her creative, productive and a real pleasure. More than any other teacher, Janet made me realise and go beyond any expectations I had of myself. Janet is a truly exceptional teacher.
Janet worked with our daughter to support her through her GCSEs.
Apart from the great “technical” support for the subject matter through Janet’s experience, she was also able to instill greater self-confidence and belief in our daughter through her understanding and empathy.
These “joined up” benefits are what make recommending Janet to others such a straightforward decision!
Janet is a warm and encouraging tutor, with masses of experience. She's knowledgeable (she's published grade-booster study books for students), endlessly patient, supportive and good humoured.
