About Us

Personalised Online Tutoring

Who are we? JMTutoring was set up in order to provide English tuition and education to students.

Based in Reigate (Surrey) and Burgess Hill (Sussex), we offer online English tuition for 11+ , KS3, GCSE, ‘A’ level students and can offer advice on degree level essays and dissertations. 

Our Philosophy

JMTutoring was founded on a person-centred approach to learning and development. Whether held online, or face to face in Reigate (Surrey) or Burgess Hill (Sussex), we are here to support students. 

By offering online English tutoring and other tuition outside of the school setting, we are able to cater for each student’s individual needs. First, lessons build confidence in English and then help learners in their academic achievement. 

We understand the various pressures that students face in the classroom and in the modern education system. So our aim is simple: to support students, their parents and carers, in an individualised way. By getting to know each of the learners, we are able to tailor the online tuition for them. 

As a result of this, we have no ‘typical’ student. Sometimes our ‘A’ level English students will go onto Oxbridge or to study English as a degree, other times we will support with children with SEN who are not in mainstream schools. At JMTutoring, every child matters and their learning and well being is our priority.  

Throughout primary school I was an avid reader, but – like so many others – when I reached secondary school English was one of my least favourite subjects and I stopped reading almost altogether. 

It was only because of an open evening at the college, and talking to one of the English teachers there, that my interest in the subject began again. Since then, I have not looked back. 

 

 

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. A person who never reads lives only one.”

George RR Martin

“The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.”

Plutarch

Starting as a scientist who loved literature and drama, I have evolved into a passionate English and drama teacher. I have taught English, Drama and Science at both junior and secondary levels as well as tutoring up to A level.  The support includes the development of good study habits and writing coherent, well-structured essays

A post-graduate course in child neurodevelopment with the Institute of Neurophysiological Psychology in Chester has enabled me to support and teach children of all abilities. These include specific learning challenges such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and school phobia. I am dyslexic myself but have never let it hold me back.

TESTIMONIAL

Jennie taught me throughout my English A-level, and I couldn't be more glad! Her lessons broke down hard passages and poems, making them understandable and enjoyable. Come exam time, my confidence was bolstered and I was able to get in to the uni of my choice with her support. I couldn't recommend her enough.
