Ms Joanne P

An experienced full-time tutor since 2011 with six years teaching experience in the secondary private and state sector in London and Wiltshire, I have been described as a bit of a polymath. I tutor a wide range of subjects, though my specialisms include English and history at all levels and maths up to and including GCSE. I excel at shaping and creating the evidence of quality learning, sparking creativity, and helping students to see the logical steps and links between one concept and another. With this comes confidence, curiosity, and even enjoyment in subjects previously found daunting and difficult. I have also taught EFL overseas, prepped students for entrance exams, was an examiner for Edexcel for many years, and more recently engaged in editing university applications and dissertations. I've worked with students of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, including SEN, primary, secondary and adult, and I genuinely love what I do.

PGCE University of Roehampton (2000). BA (Hons) History, Exeter University (1997).
