When her son was born extremely prematurely, he developed various neurocognitive disabilities. The academic struggles he encountered and helping him with his GCSEs inspired Jill to train to become a teacher. Her main school placement during her PGCE year was at The Hemel Hempstead School. Jill currently teachers GCSE and A Level Science there.
Jill loves teaching and due to her experiences with her son, in particular loves to teach children who struggle to learn.
“Jill is an excellent tutor. In addition to her excellent tuition, she is able to create enthusiasm for her subject and has been key in turning my son’s confidence and motivation for Biology around so much that he’s now talking of taking the subject for A-level. Jill’s ability to form a positive rapport with my son has been wonderful to see and pivotal to his ability to engage and flourish. Thank you, Jill!”
