Hi! My name is Jess and I’m a mature-age student currently studying a Bachelor of Education (Secondary) at The University of Newcastle. Last year I was inspired to change direction with my studies and pursue a career in education after an amazing teacher changed my life. Without her support, I wouldn’t be where I am today, and I realised the difference that one great teacher can make. As a tutor, and future teacher, I hope to support and encourage young people in such a way that brings them the same sense of achievement, pride and confidence that my education has given me. As a mother, I understand that parents only want to see their child/ren thrive. Every child is unique, with their own learning style and educational goals; and I’m extremely passionate about creating a positive learning environment that enables each individual student to reach their full potential. I have a warm, enthusiastic personality, and enjoy finding fun, engaging ways to motivate students and get them excited about their learning. I specialise in humanities/social science subjects, with Legal Studies being an absolute passion and strength of mine. I can also assist with essay writing, research, assessment tasks, study skills and exam preparation. I believe it’s not only important to give students the knowledge they need to succeed academically, but also the self-confidence to believe they can, and strategies to help them build resilience so they can cope with any challenges along the way.
