My name is Joycellyn Akuffo, and I am the managing director of Geek School Tutoring Limited. As a mum of two (one who goes to a top independent secondary school, and other in an outstanding prep school), I know what you're going through! I've been there for one, and I'm going through it with the other!
I am a journalist by profession with more than a decade's worth of experience. Some of the publications I have worked for include Woman & Home, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, Practical Parenting, Mother & Baby and BBC Good Homes (just to name a few!).
This experience of writing at a corporate level comes in very handy when I teach children to write. So, one of the strengths of Geek School Tutoring is a system that helps to ignite passion and creativity into the writing of our students because if I'm one thing, I am definitely and always will be the 'girl who likes to play with words'.
My courses cut through the jargon and bring information to parents and children alike to help bring equality of choices to education. This is reflected in the course content I provide, and in the research, I do to help parents demystify the 11 Plus! I am always open to suggestions, so please do drop me a line if you are interested in hearing about an area in particular.
