Jo has a notable track record and high level success rate re-engaging young people, for whom all educational placement have broken down, teaching them in their homes or public spaces such as libraries and cafes.

Jo believes that the true key factor to my pupils’ success is the tailoring of lessons to the pupils’ interests, finding out what sparks their imaginations and then embedding the key skills in these activities.
