    Jemma helped my son to pass his entrance exams for St Edward's School sixth form in Oxford, tutoring him in Maths and the three sciences, both over Skype and in person. Jemma quickly established the gaps in my son's knowledge due to different exam boards etc, and taught him how to answer questions to gain the maximum marks. Initially reticent about having a tutor, my son instantly warmed to Jemma, and was thoroughly impressed with her style of tutoring and seemingly endless abundance of knowledge across all sciences and maths. She also gave him the confidence to succeed and to aim higher, and I hope he will take that work ethic with him to St Edward's. I wholeheartedly recommend Jemma to anyone looking for a first-rate tutor.

    Jemma has been amazing at supporting my 15 year old daughter with maths and science. She can simplify even the most complicated topics and explain in a way that makes sense. She has been brilliant at helping her plan and organise for GCSEs and tackle tricky 16+ style questions building her confidence hugely.
