who works at eastuition
Grammar-geek and word-whizz, Sarah-Jane, turns logophobes into logophiles without them even realising it.
With over sixteen years’ experience of teaching teens and adults, and more than a decade as an examiner, the Founder of eastuition passes on her love of Language so students can develop confidence and reach individual potential in English and beyond.
Once a tour leader in South America, an interpreter in Spain, and private tutor for a renowned billionaire, Sarah-Jane brings the wealth of her experience to eastuition and enriches the learning of all her students.
When she’s not making words jump off a page for students, she’s getting words down herself as a writer represented by a Ella Kahn of DKW Literary Agency. Sarah-Jane also loves cycling, beach walks, cooking and making pictures out of buttons. She thinks tea tastes best from a white cup and she can’t watch anyone eat a lolly from a wooden stick.
With over seven years’ tutoring experience, eastuition‘s maths-marvel, Madeleine, makes problem-solving an art form.
Combining calculations with creativity and examiner-expertise, she brings maths alive so students enjoy evaluation and relish reasoning.
Multiply her love of logic by her eye for design, next add some active teaching strategies, then subtract all confusion, and her lucky students have a balanced equation for success.
A self-confessed Sodoku addict, Madeleine can’t get enough of logic problems – she even has a secret ambition to stand in for Rachel Riley on Countdown. When she’s not crunching numbers, she enjoys the outdoor life, has climbed Kilimanjaro, and is determined to teach her three cats to pull up weeds in the garden.
English expert, Jane, brings special effects to tutoring and gives EASTuition students a close-up of their potential in glorious technicolour.
With more than a decade’s experience as a teacher and Head of Department, Jane started her career in magazine publishing, organising awards’ events at venues such as the Natural History Museum. But she made no bones of her love of media and the written word, later delving into a project funded by the Heritage Lottery whilst creating resources for teachers and students of English and Media Studies.
When she’s not watching films, she’s writing the movies in her mind, and has completed a Short Story course at the University of East Anglia. She loves to swim (especially in the crystal-clear waters of far-flung locations), enjoys photography, and makes the most of long Suffolk dog walks. Jane dreams of publishing a short-story collection, and of returning from a ski trip without a broken limb.
