Business overview

Experienced, highly qualified English tutor. Language, Literature. All levels 11-adult. GCSE, A level, undergraduate. All boards.

I am a highly qualified teacher of English with 27 years' tutoring and teaching experience in a wide range of sectors. I ran the GCSE English provision in a busy FE college for 5 years, while also teaching both English Literature and Language and Literature A levels, and Access to Higher Education. I also taught Shakespeare and Linguistics in higher education for 5 years, and both undergraduate and masters level courses in Linguistics in several Midlands universities. I have been a busy full time private tutor since 2011.

I offer GCSE (Lang and Lit), A level English Literature, Language, and Lang. and Lit. (all boards), and undergraduate and masters level tutoring in a wide range of possible subject areas - please ask for details.

I have many years' experience as an A level examiner, now a principal examiner in Language and Literature A level for one of the large exam boards.

I have the highest academic standards, but am sensitive, supportive and encouraging. My aim is always to tailor teaching to the needs and ambitions of the individual student, catering for all ability levels. I have worked successfully with dyslexic students a number of times. Although exam grades are usually our key objective, in my experience it is the building of confidence that brings about the biggest transformations in the lives of my tutees.

Testimonials available (see website).

I teach in Stourbridge, (W.Midlands). Pupils normally come to me, as I find they tend to concentrate better out of their home environment, and I have all the resources available to support whatever arises in the lesson, however I may be able to travel to pupils' homes during less busy times (school hours).

Excellent

5
Jacquie is by far the best English tutor I could have wished for. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable, talented and experienced but she is friendly and makes the lessons interesting and a pleasure to take part in. Even though this year was a complete mess in regards to the coronavirus, I am absolutely ecstatic with my GCSE results and I can't thank Claritas Tutoring enough for getting me where I am today.

Excellent tutor

5
I can't recommend Jackie highly enough. She tutored my son for GCSE. She quickly identified that he was dyslexic and calmly and gently encouraged and prepared him for his GCSE. Getting him to a grade which was 2 above his initial predicted grade from school.
Her teaching methods suited him and gave him the individual teaching that he needed.
She always saw the potential in him and told him so which boosted his confidence.
Thank you Jackie

Thanks Jacquie, we really appreciate all you've done for Luke.

Teacher with experience and excellence

5
Jacqui is indeed a teacher with very rich experience and of very high level of excellence. My child was a hard-working student with good record of performance, so we wanted to ensure the highest grade in GCSE. From the very first day I met Jacqui, I knew we were with the right teacher. In fact, having made reasonable search for teachers of GCSE English, I would be honest in saying that I could not find anyone better. So in spite of the travel involved for us, we remained determined to continue with Jacqui and that has clearly yielded the result we aimed for. With my child achieving Gr9 in both English Language and Literature, we gratefully attribute a good part of that achievement to Jacqui's meticulous planning of lessons, notes and guidance with her immense experience and her way of working with her student that naturally brings the best out of the child. A very pleasant and positive personality, Jacqui is truly a teacher with highest quality to drive performance of highest standard.

Professional value for money Tutor who delivers

5
Jacque is a thoroughly professional Tutor who coached our son for five months. He achieved A Stars in both GCSE Language and Literature in June 2019. I would estimate he was destined for B grades and with hard work and very good support he achieved fantastic grades. If you trust in Jacquie your children will perform if they work hard! Very impressed and real value for money!
