Fireside English Tutoring
Who we are
Hello, I am Julie Jackson and I started Fireside English Tutoring in order to pass on my passion for English literature and English Language to learners of any age.
Having taught in schools and colleges for over ten years, I became aware that there is a need for learners to access additional approaches, materials and learning styles to increase their chances of achieving their potential. While many learners excel in the school environment, others need a more individual approach to identify and harness their knowledge.
Likewise, I have had the pleasure to meet many adults who need to further their qualifications in English so they may pursue other avenues of employment. For them, committing to full-time courses is difficult due to family commitments; therefore flexible and individual tutoring sessions offer a different avenue to success.
Alternatively, I have had many discussions with adults who share my passion for English and would like to have the chance to pursue studies on specific authors without committing to qualifications.
As a result, I have started Fireside English Tutoring for all these people: those needing help to pass tests and exams; those wanting to challenge themselves to get higher grades; and those who want to just pursue their passion for English.
For those of you who are interested, the name Fireside came about for two reasons: Firstly, I remember reading as a child the ‘Fireside Companion set of poems for children’.
It was my escape (along with the ‘Nancy Drew Mystery’s’) and started my love of English.
Secondly, where better to read your favourite book?
I look forward to hearing from you and enabling you to achieve your aspirations.
