Jess is a graduate of UCL where she studied History of Art and received first-class honours. Her course covered Western art from ancient times right up to modern day. She also studied Philosophy and Anthropology modules during her time at university. At A Level, Jess studied English Literature, Philosophy and Mathematics, gaining 1A* and 2As and receiving full marks for her English Literature coursework.
Jess has held several placements in different settings where she has worked with adults with complex needs, including a residential home for adults with forensic mental health where she was often faced with challenging behaviour. During her time at each placement she took on a tutor role for the clients, running art and reading groups and teaching a range of computer skills.
She spent time last year living abroad now works in the charity sector. She continues to volunteer at an art group for adults and young people with learning difficulties where she works 1-on-1 with a member of the group to help them create something they are proud of.
Jess is caring, friendly and patient and remains committed to enabling her students to reach their potential. Her volunteering and work experience means she is aware of differences in learning styles and will ensure that each child’s needs are met.
In her spare time, Jess enjoys making art, playing netball and cooking.
