About my sessions

I like to keep things informal, laid-back and relaxed so that students feel they can ask any question. As a tutor, my sessions will be adapted to whatever it is that you want to learn: exam technique, tricky concepts from class or topics on the specification that you’re unsure about.

I aim to pass on my enthusiasm for learning in a fun and creative way.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me for either a tutorial or a free taster session. A free taster session is a chance to meet me and discuss any worries with me before committing to a tutorial.

I’m flexible with timings, with added availability in the lead up to exam periods.

My son was tutored by Jasmine for GCSE English, initially he was unsure of what to do in terms of revision and felt overwhelmed. Jasmine helped him identify areas of weakness, tailored sessions around these and helped him focus on where he needed to concentrate his revision. He has been so much more confident going into the exams and this is due to the help that Jasmine has given him.

Jasmine has helped my sons become more confident with their English GCSE's and I genuinely feel they will achieve a better grade as a result of her work with them.
