Methodology

Perfect! Jaye is a very helpful teacher. She always came up with new interesting topics which I wanted to discuss. She is a very knowledgeable teacher with whom you can discuss any field you want. She gave me a broader idea about how Australian system works and culture here is. I was glad to meet her in my journey. I wish her all the success in her career. Thank you!

Jaye's response

Vigila was a fantastic student- so interesting to talk to and thoughtful I really enjoyed our lessons. In regards to our lessons, with time her ability to discuss complex topics in detail and use a wider and more nuanced vocabulary definitely improved. I wish her and her family all the best.

Bruce

Perfect! She looks like having a lot of experiences to tutor overseas students. Also, she has a very good understanding of what Asian students have problems in learning English.

Jaye's response

Bruce and I are starting to work well together to make the lessons as interesting and engaging as possible for the students. Particularly with the drawing and games, the students seem to be enjoying the lessons more each time.

Jaye is a friendly and intellectual tutor. She helps learning about vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar rules when you converse in lessons. My English level is intermediate and I recommend her absolutely for improving English skills. I feel so lucky to meet her.

Jaye is extremely professional and knowledgeable. She has great patience and various ways of explaining concepts I struggle understanding. She has an extensive knowledge in various topics and is continuously furthering her studies. Don't think twice to do a class with her! You will not regret it. She has helped me going from a "pass" student to a distinction student and I couldn't have done it without all her help.

Patrick

Jaye is an exceptional communicator, relationship builder and incredibly patient and respectful to all students from all backgrounds - attributes which make her an outstanding teacher. She has high levels of language and subject matter expertise, not only in her own understanding, but additionally in her skills and ability to distil complex concepts in political science, government, international relations and other subjects, into understandable pieces for her students. This is additionally bolstered through her extensive, international practical and academic experience. Ultimately, alongside her incredibly enthusiastic demeanour, Jaye is able to tailor lessons to the person she is working with, providing effective, long-lasting knowledge, instruction and understanding. I would wholeheartedly recommend Jaye as a teacher and mentor.

Jaye provided one-to-one home tuition for students aged 11-18 in subjects including: Maths, English, History, Geography and Spanish. Jaye received consistently excellent feedback from her students and their parents. Jaye has excellent subject knowledge in a range of core subjects. She quickly establishes great tutoring relationships with students of all levels and abilities, and from a range of backgrounds. Jaye was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her for future teaching or tutoring roles.
