Jennie has been an educator for over 30 years, specialising in the last decade as an online tutor preparing students for the rigours of the highly competitive entrance examination process at 7 plus, 11 plus and 13 Plus. The majority of her clients seek out her help for 11 plus tuition and for her advice as an educational consultant.
In the past, she worked as a classroom teacher in both primary and secondary schools in private and state sectors. She also spent a number of years working as a peripatetic music teacher with students of all ages, and has worked with families as a governess and nanny, travelling all over the world in these roles.
Jennie has two lovely children who have inspired and educated her most of all throughout her life. They are the reason she decided to write her first book, Maximise your Child’s Performance, as she wanted to pass on all the amazing things she had learnt on her educator’s journey. She is in the middle of writing another book, Maximise your Child’s Happiness, which includes activities designed to protect your child’s mental health and promote their sense of wellbeing.
Jennie was lucky enough to do her first degree at Oxford University, and has done a number of additional degrees since that time. She is qualified to teach both arts and sciences.
Jennie is passionate about seeing equality in the education system and would like the educational opportunities she has been fortunate to receive to be open to all, regardless of a child’s socioeconomic background. Her goal with her books is to level the playing field for families and to support them in bringing the best out of their children.
Jennie offers Online Tutoring in English, Maths and Science to a limited number of clients worldwide. She specialises in 7+, 8+, 11+ and 13+ school entrance exams but additionally has a number of long term clients working towards GCSEs.
She also works as an educational consultant, providing guidance for parents. She offers a one-off 11 Plus Creative Writing Assessment. Jennie analyses a sample of the student’s handwritten work then debriefs parents in a 30 minute zoom meeting. During this session, Jennie highlights any areas which need working on and offers advice to parents on how they can help their children prepare for the exam going forward. These assessments cost £70 and can be booked here. Please note that samples of a student’s writing need to be sent over at least 24 hours ahead of any meeting.
