A bit about Jo W

I am a fully qualified teacher with a PGCE (QTS) in Secondary English and I have been teaching English and English literature at KS3 and KS4 for the last 6 years. I also have a PGDE in Education English (literacy) which I put to good use teaching basic English and functional skills English in college and community settings. I understand that learning can be challenging and we can get anxious if we feel that we don't understand something. Tutoring enables me to find out where those difficulties are and work together with the learner to find their way through them. I love to support the learner to find answers themselves and see their confidence grow when they know they can do it! I have taught English language and English literature GCSE using WJEC Eduqas for the last six years. I teach KS3 English and English literature and also have experience of teaching functional skills English with City and Guilds levels 1 and 2. I learn something new or remember something old every day and this helps to remind me that we never stop learning. I have young children who teach me things about nature and tell me things that they have done at school. I always feel in awe of the brain's capacity for learning; I have to stop and marvel at the wealth of information we have around us. I have been a teacher in secondary school for the last six years; I was a functional skills tutor at college and in the community for two years. Now I am teaching English in a variety of settings, and I am getting ready to go back to university to study Psychology. My family keep me very busy, but when I get a little bit of time just for me, I might just jump in the car, drive to the coast and enjoy a long walk with my dog.
