She always receives very good feedback from our clients.

She is currently one of our in house consultants for entrance exams and trains our tutors how to approach the tutorials for these exams. Her former tutees have obtained places at Alleyn’s, JAGS, City of London and Sydenham High School.
Jessica also tutors English Literature and Theatre Studies to A-level standard, Jessica studied at Oxford High School where she secured 4 A levels all at Grade A. During her time in Oxford she taught young children (aged 3 to 8) singing and performance as part of Oxford Youth Choirs. She has also tutored young students for Common Entrance to schools in and around Oxford. Jessica believes that the best learning takes place when a good and positive relationship has been established between student and tutor. In her own words: “I believe that ‘understanding’ is paramount to real learning, I always aim to nurture the student’s confidence and to encourage the student to find real enjoyment in their studies.” When Jess isn’t tutoring she loves the theatre and reading.
“Jessica has successfully helped to prepare my daughter for her English Language and Literature GCSEs over the last four months, and the weekly lessons have had a positive impact on her recent grades. She has excellent subject knowledge and has correctly identified my daughter’s weaknesses and strengths, ensuring that these are addressed in her lessons. Jessica has been particularly good at teaching her to plan effectively for her writing, reflecting her understanding of the GCSE syllabus. Through her teaching, Jessica focuses on confidence building, which has been a key to success.”
