Welcome to Helen Jonas Tutoring

I LOVE to teach… I LOVE to tutor.

By making my sessions lively and fun, children LOVE to learn. They leave each session with new skills, a positive attitude and a massive smile.

I have over 25 years of experience teaching across the age ranges in primary schools in Plymouth and South-East Cornwall. I have taught in some inspiring schools which have moulded how I teach now.

My sessions are taught in small groups with no more than 7 children. I work from a fully-equipped tutoring room in my home in the centre of Saltash, Cornwall. Drinks, tasty snacks and stationery are all provided.

What the children say….

Yay! I passed! Thank you so much for all of your kindness, support and Bourbon biscuits!

T J11+ pupil

Can I just say a humongous thank you to Helen? You have really boosted my confidence and it’s really showing in class. My teacher and parents have noticed.

MH

Thank you very much for tutoring me over the last year. Even if you haven’t (even though I am sure that you have) enjoyed it, I have and I think everyone else has too! I’ll keep in touch and I’ll be asking you lots of questions about equations.

ZF

Thank you so much. I’ve gone from not being very good at maths to it being my favourite subject!

IH

Mrs. Jonas… My 11+ year? AWESOME! Thank you!

FH

What the parents say….

Totally amazing tutor who is on the level with the children whilst driving and motivating them to reach their potential…..couldn’t speak more highly for this lady. She does her job superbly and some more!

Parent 111+ pupil

Well done Helen!!!! It’s your hard work, dedication and fun ways of learning which have helped them on their ways. On that note I am thinking of ‘Mum’ tutoring to enable me to keep up!

Parent 2

That’s bloomin’ good teaching!

Parent 3

Thank you Helen you are amazing!!! You’ve put up with many tears and tantrums (and that’s just been me!!!) E is so much more confident now.

Parent 4

Helen you are such a wonderful creative and inspirational teacher. Thank you

Parent 5

I cannot speak highly enough of this wonderful lady, she has helped B to achieve her potential with confidence, courage and determination and she is now a happy learner and engaged to do the best she possibly can. She also helped me to keep calm and carry on through all of the frustrations we have faced. She is one amazing Tutor and a lovely lady too. So, if you think your child could use some help at primary education level, keep calm, just call Helen Jonas!

Parent 6

Thank you for all your input and for the care and kindness you show to the children. You make it fun and that is no easy feat. Thank you also for going above and beyond your call of duty.

Parent 7

F has had a really fantastic year with you and he’s thoroughly enjoyed the way you have tutored him to enable his efforts of passing the 11+ I have seen him show great energy and aptitude to the work and we have always appreciated your feedback and comments.
