Testimonials:

“Mrs Ackerman was my teacher for 5 years, teaching me throughout my GCSE’s and A Levels. She helped me develop my critical thinking skills and gave me the tools to be a critical writer at a very young age.

With her help I was able to achieve an A* in my History GCSE. Her method and style of teaching is unique which allows the individual to push and challenge themselves. Not only this, but she really believes in every pupil she teaches, she is a very motivational individual and has great passion which is evident in her teaching.

I have extensively benefited from Mrs Ackerman’s teaching and I truly believe that her teaching made my jump from studying at A level to studying at Degree Level a whole lot easier.”

“Mrs Ackerman throughout my studies has always brought the best out of me, encouraging me not to settle for a good essay, always offering advice to make my work that little bit better. I would go as far as saying that Mrs Ackerman’s approach to teaching encouraged me to apply this attitude to the rest of my courses.

There is no doubt that the teaching I received positively impacted my GCSE and A-Level grades. Additionally many techniques I was taught have helped me in the early stages of my university life and for that, I owe Mrs Ackerman, who helped me get to where I am today!”

Marco Lekkas

“I have worked with Jackie Ackerman for 7 years at a high school in Newport. During this period, I have encountered many learners, who under Jackie’s guidance, have had great success.

Jackie has always been a dedicated, encouraging and motivational teacher. She has provided a calm learning environment in which learners have gained confidence and ability. The effectiveness of Jackie’s hard work has often come to fruition, with the majority of learners gaining excellent GCSE and A level results.

As a parent myself, I would entrust my child’s learning experience to Jackie without hesitation.”

Rhi

“I love the checklist! Homeschooling has been daunting and using the checklist has been a great help. It provides a good structure to the day and breaks the tasks down into manageable steps.

Simple things like, starting your school day at the same time every day and making sure your tech is charged may seem obvious when written down but can be easily overlooked and using the checklist as a reminder really does add value to your school day.”
